As a film aficionado, I can assert that a GOOD script is the essential "key" to a good movie. With that in mind, which screenwriter would you choose to pen the screenplay for a sequel?

Here are my picks:

1.) David Lynch, whose line of work includes:

- Mulholland Dr.
- Lost Highway
- Blue Velvet

2.) Alan Ball:

- American Beauty
- Various TV shows, such as: True Blood, Six Feet Under, and Grace Under Fire.

3.) Richard Kelly

- Donnie Darko
- The Box

There's more that don't come to mind at the moment.

Although, if someone like: Federico Fellini were alive, I'd want to work with him. His masterpiece, , still blows me away today. It's as close to cinematic art as you'll ever get.

*Some female screenwriters are taking Hollywood by storm, such as: Lorene Scafaria, and Diablo Cody, whose work I'm really impressed with.

How about you guys?

Honestly, I think it should be someone who's a no-name who has done in-depth research on the first film and knows the games well.

It doesn't necessarily have to be a no-name, as long as their work is admirable; though, I do agree that a renowned writer wouldn't invest as much time as someone who has more at stake.

I find that renowned writers have less to prove, so it doesn't matter if they make a bad script. On the other hand, if a no-name botches their first big script, they're SOL.

George Romero, John Carpenter and Wes Craven would be good choices. Though if he was still alive, I'd pick Stanley Kubrik.

I would vote for Stephen King, Pang Brothers or Shinya Tsukamoto to work on this movie. I'm leaning more towards Stephen King though. :mrgreen:
And absolutely no to Richard Kelly. Lol!

Uwe Boll!


ha ha. Well as much as I want to say David Lynch alone, I think i would like to see a collaboration with him and someone else that is very much into the series.

Xev, bite your tongue!

I don't know so much about collaboration when it comes to writing. There's always a difference in opinion and it usually ends in conflict.

And why do you say no to Richard Kelly? The man has an understanding of surrealism, which can be beneficial.

It should the the long-term fans at SHHF.

They would understand Silent Hill and not fuck it up.

He had a very good joining with Mark Frost for twin peaks and worked very well together. :)

lol. Yes, I remember it vividly. She informed the class that we'd be having a fun day, so I brought-in a pack of playing cards and a couple of us guys joined our tables together, then proceeded in playing. Not only did she grab the cards away, but she threw them out the window. Of course, I stood-up and stormed out of the class and dropped an F-bomb (Probably not a good idea). Anyway, I walked around the school; I even went to one of the guidance counselors and complained, then eventually I fled to the gymnasium where the disciplinary officer, finally, caught-up with me.

David Lynch, I totally agree with u there, I'm a big Luc Besson fan myself, but he doesn't do horror. I'm an up and coming filmmaker and I'd do it myself but I do not have the budget or equipment....if I did I would lol. A few short films are in the work under my production company. I would love to share these shorts on the forum when they are finished :) http://www.vimeo.com/10091583

I would say Lynch of course, or the feller behind Jacob's Ladder, but this is a sequel to the Silent Hill movie which is a little more pop-horror and for a bigger audience, a little more mainstream, so I'd say perhaps whoever wrote Dead End or maybe The Grudge 2.

how about Guillermo del Toro? i mean, he's one of the best screen writers ever, and the creator of my fav. horror movies "Master's of Horror" and "The Devils Backbone", a spiritual sequel of "Pan's Labyrinth" . one of his mindfuck movie was the 1993 phsyco-horror "Cronos"... i think he'll do great in silent hill.

Clearly, Christophe Gans needs assistans and should only handle the visual portion, so I'd choose between a few distinct directors and writers with great competence:

- Adrian Lyne (JACOB'S LADDER, UNFAITHFUL) by his side, or...
- David Lynch...
- Danny Boyle (TRAINSPOTTING, 28 DAYS LATER)
- Neil Marshall (DOG SOLDIERS, THE DESCENT)

Or Mr. Avary might given his circumstances come up with a good script exclusively on his own...
