According to a Silent Hill: Revelation 3D facebook fanpage, Akira Yamaoka, who composed Silent Hill 1-7 as well as the Silent Hill arcade game, has composed three new pieces for the upcoming film. Now, it was confirmed by director Michael J. Bassett in his blog that Yamaoka would be working with Jeff Danna, who helped compose the first movie. So, there might just be some validity to this. I can’t however find where Danna stated that this was the case, so until then I remain skeptical. I did however find that on his official website, you can stream two tracks from the upcoming score. They’re well worth checking out here!
Directed by Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane, Deathwatch), original cast members Sean Bean (HBO’s Game Of Thrones, Lord Of The Rings), Deborah Kara Unger (The Game, 88 minutes, The Samaritan) and Radha Mitchell (Man On Fire, The Crazies, upcoming The Frozen Ground) return in Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, starring along with rising stars Adelaide Clemens (X-Men Origins, upcoming The Great Gatsby, No One Lives) and Kit Harington (HBO’s Game Of Thrones) as well as Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix, Disturbia, NBC’s Chuck) and Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, The Artist).
In the film, “Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father (Bean) have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. On the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by horrific nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she’s not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her forever.”
Silent Hill: Revelation 3D will be released wide October 26, 2012 in time for Halloween.
