Oscar winner Roger Avary (Pulp Fiction) penned the movie version of Konami horror game Silent Hill. Word has it he’s involved with the sequel.
Avary also penned and directed the movie version of Bret Easton Ellis book The Rules of Attraction. According to an interview with his pal Ellis, Avary is doing Silent Hill 2. Here’s the exchange regarding Avary and Easton’s novel Glamorama:
Q. Is he [Avary]still attached to direct Glamorama?
Ellis: He’s going to be shooting Silent Hill 2. As far as Glamorama, it’s just very hard to get the money to make it.
This is hardly official confirmation — though, Ellis did he and Avary had dinner together recently, so it could just be unannounced.
The monkey wrench in this Avary-is-doing-Silent-Hill-2 chatter: The filmmaker was charged with vehicular manslaughter last December, and if convicted, he faces 11 years in prison. That is, if Avary wasn’t in the movie business and this wasn’t California.
