Return To Silent Hill Plot And Characters
Return To Silent Hill is set to follow the plot of Konami's Silent Hill 2 game Silent Hill 2, with some major changes to the plot from the original. The updated synopsis mentions that James' partner is named Mary Crane, not Mary Sunderland, suggesting that the two might not have been married. It also mentions a new character named "Jacob Crane," of whom James falls into the "dark underworld."
Return To Silent Hill's official plot synopsis reads as follows:
Driven by the shadows of his past, James Sunderlandreturns to Silent Hill to find his lost love, Mary Crane. But the dark, depressing small town is no longer the place from his memories. He meets characters who seem all too familiar and who try to divert him from his search for Mary. The longer he searches for Mary, the more he begins to wonder if this is still reality - or if he has fallen into the dark underworld of Jacob Crane.
Return To Silent Hill Cast
Jeremy Irvine will play James Sunderland in the Return to Silent Hill cast. Hannah Emily Anderson will portray James' love interests, Mary Sunderland and Maria.
We don't know of any other confirmed cast members at this time, but, considering filming has already allegedly begun, it's likely that we could hear more information about the movie's cast very soon.
Return To Silent Hill will be written by Christophe Gans, Sandra Vo-Anh, and Will Schneider. The film will be directed by Gans, who also directed the rest of the Silent Hill movies.
