Earlier this week Bloody-Disgusting own Jeff Otto joined press in Georgia for a trip to the set of Breck Eisner’s The Crazies, Overture Films’ remake of the classic George A. Romero film from 1973. While on set Jeff had the chance to talk to star Radha Mitchell, who revealed some new info on the long delayed Silent Hill 2, the sequel to Christophe Gans’ video game adaptation from 2006.
During a visit to the set of Breck Eisner’s THE CRAZIES in rural Georgia earlier this week, Bloody-Disgusting had the chance to speak with star Radha Mitchell, who plays the wife to Timothy Olyphant’s Sheriff character in CRAZIES. The actress was in a particularly giddy mood during the chat, casually giggling with press as she chewed on the straw from her drink cup.
When asked about any plans for a SILENT HILL sequel, the actress told press, “I don’t know what’s going on with that. I think they’re kicking it around.”
Christophe Gans, who directed the first film adaptation of the popular video game series, probably won’t return for the sequel. “I don’t think Christophe is attached,” said Mitchell. “[That] is a shame because he’s a nutter but he’s so passionate about the game. I think he should do it if they do it again.”
If a SILENT HILL sequel does happen, Mitchell hopes to make a cameo, possibly as one of the HILL ghouls. “I’m sure they will [do a sequel] but I’m not sure what incarnation it will be. If there is I want to come back as a monster or like some crazy creature.”
In the first film starring Mitchell, unable to accept the doctor’s diagnosis that her daughter should be permanently institutionalized for psychiatric care, Rose (Radha Mitchell) flees with her child, heading for the abandoned town in search of answers — and ignoring the protests of her husband (Sean Bean). It’s soon clear this place is unlike anywhere she’s ever been.
