If you were eagerly anticipating Silent Hills, the new chapter of the Konami game series Silent Hill that would have combined the talents of writer/producer/director Guillermo del Toro, Metal Gear man Hideo Kojima and The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus, we have some bad news: it’s no longer happening.Announced last year through a playable teaser on the PS4, the game has been in development, but there has since been some tension between Kojima’s company and Konami. Speaking at the San Francisco film festival this weekend, del Toro said, "It's not gonna happen and that breaks my greasy heart.”A more formal statement from Konami quickly followed… “Konami is committed to new Silent Hill titles, however the embryonic Silent Hills project developed with Guillermo del Toro and featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus will not be continued. Discussions on future Silent Hill projects are currently underway, »
Norman Reedus fans hoping to control and guide the actor through the creepy world of “Silent Hills” should be bummed to find out that the video game has been canned. “Super bummed about this was really looking forward to it,” the “Walking Dead” star who recently appeared on TheWrap‘s “Drinking with the Stars” tweeted on Sunday. “Hopefully it’ll come back around. Sorry everyone.” A teaser trailer for the doomed game starring Reedus premiered last August, along with a playable teaser that is still available on the Playstation Store, but will reportedly expire on April 29.

The story has been developing rather oddly over the past weekend. Silent Hills was either being cancelled, or something was changing in the mix. The highly anticipated crew behind it slowly distanced themselves from the project and we were left wondering… What the hell is going on? We finally have our answer.

Konami must have been asleep when word started to spread like fire through the internet that Silent Hills was cancelled because until this morning there was no official word. Today the official word is that yep, Silent Hills is indeed dead, but the series will of course live on. Sadly.
I say sadly because Silent Hills was first revealed through P.T. (Playable Teaser) which was just that, a tech demo for everyone to play. The idea that we got to play a tech demo and see a teaser in this way was groundbreaking as-is. »

The Internet was rocked last August when Sony released "P.T." (aka playable teaser), an interactive PS4 sample from Konami that featured Norman Reedus walking down malevolent memory lane in the haunted town of Silent Hill. "P.T." promised a forthcoming Silent Hill game titled Silent Hills, which would star Reedus and come from the minds of Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima. Recent comments from del Toro and Reedus, however, reveal that their trip to Silent Hill has been crossed off the calendar.
Eurogamer reports that although Konami is still working on a new entry to the Silent Hill series, the Silent Hills game teased in the frightening "P.T." is not moving forward. At a film event in San Francisco, del Toro confirmed the news and Reedus took to Twitter to share his regrets about the game's cancellation:
Super bummed about this was really looking forward to it. »

Shortly after the The Phantom Pain saga, Hideo Kojima’s decision to part ways with Konami cast a shadow of doubt over Silent Hills, a retelling of the legendary horror series which would have him collaboration with cinematic maestro Guillermo Del Toro. However, over the weekend, Tweets from the project’s leading stars confirmed our worst fears to be true, and today the Japanese publisher has announced that the pair’s vision for the franchise is effectively no more.
Taking to the game’s official website, Konami addressed some concerns through the official Q&A segment, where it noted that P.T. – the excellent horror teaser that essentially started the resurgence in the first place – is to be taken down from Psn on Wednesday, April 29.
Why has the image of Norman Reedus disappeared from the official website?
This is because our contract period with him has expired.
Why is “P. »

In August of 2014, Konami announced a new Silent Hill title created by Metal Gear mastermind Hideo Kojima with creative input from Pan’s Labyrinth filmmaker Guillermo del Toro and Walking Dead star Norman Reedus. Revealed via a playable teaser that might have been one of the best works of horror last year, Silent Hills quickly…

This is rough news for gamers and film fans alike, as the Silent Hills video game that Guillermo del Toro (Crimson Peak, Pacific Rim) and Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid series) were working on has officially been cancelled. The psychological horror series took place in the fictitious American town (the titular Silent Hill) and would have starred Norman Reedus in the lead role. Super bummed about this was really looking forward to it. Hopefully it'll come back around. Sorry »

It looks like "Silent Hills," one of last year's big game announcements, may have been cancelled.
During a panel discussion at the San Francisco Film Festival the other night, del Toro suggested that the game has been cancelled, saying "It's not gonna happen and that breaks my greasy heart" according to reporter Matt Hackney on Twitter.
The game was teased last year with "P.T.", a Fox Engine-powered mini-game/demo that scored strong reviews. The game, upon completion, revealed a trailer for the "Silent Hills" game starring Norman Reedus ("The Walking Dead").
Adding concern is that after being available for nearly a year, Konami is pulling "P.T." from the PlayStation Store with the game set to be yanked from this coming Wednesday. »

Silent Hills is, for all intents and purposes, dead. After weeks of controversy and confusion coming from Konami surrounding the future of Hideo Kojima within the company, statements from both Guillermo del Toro and Norman Reedus have confirmed that Silent Hills isn’t going to happen. Whether this is down to a personal falling out, or simply because Konami want to stifle Kojima’s creativity by forcing him to make Mgs games for the rest of his life (my money is on that one) remains to be seen. But what’s almost certain is that Hideo Kojima will be leaving the company after the release of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain in September, and so his collaboration with del Toro to revive the ailing Silent Hill franchise won’t be going forward. And that sucks.
If Silent Hill, as a series, had been canned a couple of years ago, »

Update: Konami has now confirmed what Guillermo del Toro suggested at the weekend. Silent Hills is cancelled...
Update: Konami has now confirmed to several outlets that its survival horror game Silent Hills has been cancelled.
Sad news indeed. Our original story follows:
The future of survival horror sequel Silent Hills has been in question ever since Hideo Kojima left Konami under mysterious circumstances a few months ago. Now, reports of the game's premature death have emerged from two reliable sources - director Guillermo del Toro and actor Norman Reedus.
Del Toro set alarm bells ringing first, »
This is a bad day for us horror-loving gamers, as one of our biggest fears has come true. That is, the apparent cancellation of Silent Hills, the fantastic-looking series reboot from directors Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima.
Silent Hills‘ development had been put on hold by Hideo Kojima, who wanted to put his full attention towards Metal Gear Solid V. Then, as had been widely reported, some sort of falling out occurred between Konami and Kojima himself, resulting in the developer’s apparent decision to leave the company following that game’s much-anticipated release.
Although Konami has yet to issue a statement, Guillermo del Toro was quoted as saying, “It’s not going to happen and it breaks my greasy heart,” during yesterday’s question-and-answer session at the San Francisco International Film Festival.

Nobody ever said Daryl Dixon is gay, “Walking Dead” star Norman Reedus clarifies in the latest episode of TheWrap‘s “Drinking with the Stars.” “Walking Dead” executive producer and comic book creator Robert Kirkman said last summer that the idea of Dixon being gay “has been discussed,” and that AMC “absolutely would” allow that possibility, but Reedus said it never got past the point of discussion. “There’s a character in the comic book named Jesus, who is gay and he’s badass. Somebody in a panel asked Robert , ‘Is that going to be Daryl’s story?’ And he said, »

Washington — The showbiz presence for White House Correspondents Assn. weekend is less visible this year — in favor of stars who have some connection to D.C.
The reasons for this have varied. The novelty of hobnobbing with members of President Obama’s administration has worn off, and the event has become enough of a crush of people that some have decided to take a pass.
“Talking to the most interesting people in the world, it’s great,” he said, after posing for yet another selfie before heading in to the Garden Brunch, one of the longer-lasting traditions of the weekend.
“I am so grateful,” he said, when asked if he’s getting tired of the selfie requests. “It’s an opportunity to meet and talk to people that you don’t normally get to talk to. »

Norman Reedus, star of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” is no stranger to rumor and innuendo, with a Google search to that effect returning over half a million results. So recent reports about the impact of the sale of his home on his status with the show barely fazed the man for whom “The Reedus Effect” was coined. “That’s not even my house,” Reedus told TheWrap‘s Greg Gilman. “It’s a rumor.” Local Atlanta news sites reported in late March that Reedus put the $585,000 3-bedroom home on the market, leading some “Walking Dead” fans to assume Reedus’ character »

The fifth season of AMC’s The Walking Dead has come to an end, and though there is an upcoming spin-off prequel series Fear The Walking Dead to look forward to, for now, the adventures of Rick, Daryl, Michonne, Glenn and all the rest have come to a close until next fall. Which makes this the perfect time to reflect on those characters, and actors, still with the show – and those who aren’t.
Like many shows with a high body count (Game of Thrones is a particular standout here as well), there has been a lot of turnover as far as actors on The Walking Dead are concerned. In fact, from the original group in season one, only the characters of Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Carl (Chandler Riggs), Glenn (Steven Yeun), Carol (Melissa McBride), and Daryl (Norman Reedus) remain, and of those, only Rick, Carl, and Glenn have been there for every outing. »

Helena Christensen just gets better with age! The 46-year-old supermodel shows some serious skin in the latest issue of Madame Figaro, flaunting her killer bod in nothing but a pair of metallic shorts. In another set of pics, the brunette bombshell flashes her breasts in a mesh tank top and puts her toned booty on display in a tiny two-piece. The leggy beauty still looks long and lean, crediting her slim silhouette to a "good metabolism." She even admits that she doesn't have to watch what she eats, declaring, "I love good food." While Helena may not follow a strict diet, she tells that mag that she works hard on her enviable bod! "I started [working out] quite late, around 30 years old," she explains. "I started because I wanted to feel more toned. It's fascinating to see the muscles lengthen working parts of the body." "I hate endurance - it's impossible for me to run a marathon, »

In the midst of all the blood, guts and horror on The Walking Dead, might there also be love in the air? Fans everywhere love the super close relationship between zombie-hunting hunk Daryl (Norman Reedus) and badass Carol (Melissa McBride)...even though there hasn't been any real hookup between them. Yet. Nope, just lots of shared intense looks, heartwarming hugs and some off-the-charts, crazy chemistry. And when E! News' Marc Malkin caught up with Reedus at the premiere of the new HBO documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck to chat about the fan-favorite relationship, he got super adorable and protective about it. Seriously, we can't stop swooning...and laughing. That's just the Reedus charm at »
Norman Reedus is credited with roles in over 60 films and TV shows, and while some of his performances have been impressive, none of them come close to matching the popularity he’s garnered as Daryl Dixon on AMC’s hit zombie thriller The Walking Dead.
Daryl is a phenomenon, with an enormous cult following and whole ranges of merchandise based on Reedus’ character, remarkable considering he started out as a prickly loner during the show’s first season.
Unlike many of his Walking Dead co-stars, the 46-year-old actor is working on several other projects alongside the show, with three films wrapped up ready for release towards the end of this year, and the start of 2016.

The Walking Dead co-creator's Image Comics imprint will give the company first refusal on any film adaptations of its titles.
"In high school I watched Army of Darkness pretty much every night before bed so I've seen that Universal logo steering around the planet we call home about a thousand times," Kirkman told The Hollywood Reporter.
"The idea of producing movies that will bear that logo is just unbelievably awesome. We couldn't find better partners than the team at Universal. I believe this partnership is going to help David [Alpert, Kirkman's long-time business partner] and I achieve all the goals we set out to accomplish when we founded Skybound five years ago."
However, rumours that a Walking Dead film could be part of the new deal have been played down.
