If they pulled it off right, I think this would be fantastic! Walter is a great character, and the ghosts would be absolutely terrifying. Silent Hill 4 is one of the best games in the series (in my opinion, second only to SH2 and tied with SH3). The monsters are grotesque and the story is disturbingly bizarre. The otherworld in this game is also the most horrific and disgusting. Do you think they could pull it off?

I totally think that would be an amazing movie!! The concept is perfect and I agree Walter would be amazing antagonist (assumign they get the rigth guy to play him)

They would just have to do it right, not change anything, like they did in the SH movie. I luv SH4, its my 2nd fav of the series, so I woudl DEF want to see it as a movie!

and my bro in law would play Henry!! haha it woudl be perfect! XD

As this thread has nothing to do with the actual Silent Hill film it doesn't have to be in the Silent Hill movie section.

I always thought it would work better as a book, personally.

I would love to see this game as a movie! Don't get me wrong its great to play but it does get old pretty quickly, with running back and forth, etc. But the story in the game is so strong I think it could work.

As for who should play Walter, I'm not too sure. But there is an actor (other than your pic of Johnny) that I thought looked like him, Kevin Bacon:

Just dirty him up a little and there ya go! :P

Actually he would do a great job with that role, he was awesome in Stir of Echoes, and has played quite a few antagonists.

Girl Interrupted - Kevin Bacon looks fit for that role. It will be nice if they are making the film! :)

that picture looks horrible. and photoshopped. horribly photoshopped.

i don't think bacon could quite pull off the act, though... there should be something eerie and child-like about whoever plays walter, and bacon doesn't have that.

I too, as Krist pointed out, think it would work best as a book.

Something about a grown man crawling through a hole in his bathroom, would make the film rediculous.

If you did it right it would work.....1408 worked as a movie :)

but yes, when presented with it as a book, it would make an awesome book as well!!! XD

I cant think of anyone at the moment who could paly walter. I say....NEW TALENT! I woudl hate it if a big actor came in and tromped all over Walter's character with their acting "techniques" you know? I think they could find someone new, there's plenty fo talent in the world!

I'm curious to see what it would be like as a movie. Like everyone's been saying, with the right cast it has potential. Just please don't use Kevin Bacon :<

I agree with Krist completely. Maybe Johnny Depp would be able to...just I wouldn't look forward to seeing a whole bunch of big time celebs running away from lil ghosties. I thought Depp had a certain innocence to him in Edward Scissorhands. Then again we are talking about two different characters: A man who killed ruthlessly in hopes of seeing his mother, and a sort of childlike, naive creation who didn't quite know any better. Hmm...i just don't know. Maybe it could be possible.

Actually that was not photoshopped, that's how he look's in the movie Beauty Shop. That's the only pic I could find of him in that film. I just remember watching the previews and thinking that he looked alot like Walter with that hair.

But yeah I agree about the actor needing to have something "eerie and child-like" just wanted to point out he really does look like him... well in that movie.

All right, I know I'm going to get totally flamed for this, but: Jack Black.

Everyone is used to seeing him as this happy, jolly guy, but he's also got this borderline maniacal intensity about him that occasionally comes through. If he could tap into both of those personality aspects simultaneously, and grow out his hair, I think he would be a kickass Walter.

quite frankly I think kg would be a great andrew desilvo(er whatev he name be). have michael cera as jasper. have kate beckinsale as cynthia. paul giamatti as richard branchtree. keanu reeves as henry (he kicked ass in constantine). and here's the kicker...the perfect eileen...fran drescher. I actually think a movie adaptation of this would be a bad idea.

Eh, I'm not so sure it would work out great. I'll bet the outcome would be interesting, but... I think it would also turn out rather corny in movie form. I'm also wondering how exactly the bigger story would be approached (if it was even approached) and how many people would get it.

But, I don't mean to sound like an ass. It's something I'd be interested to see.

I thought Sean Bean would make a great Walter Sullivan...too bad he was in Silent Hill: Movie already.

Yes! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who sees that.

As for Ashton Kutcher as Henry, I can see the similarity in hairstyle and clothing, but his facial features are very different. That being said, I'm pretty sure he can deliver the line "What the hell?" in a convincing manner. Wait a minute, I'm getting an idea. . .

Ashton Kutcher is Henry Townshend in. . . "The Room: Dude, Where's My Neighbor?"

Watch the movie remake of "The Hills have Eyes" ...The main character IS Henry.

Edit: Also I totally agree with the Brad Pitt thing.

I'd rather read the novelization.

Though, the first time I saw Frank Sunderland I also saw Michael Gambon (Dumbelore in HP-films)
