Silent Hills may not be moving forward at Konami anymore, but that doesn't mean Guillermo del Toro has lost hope of the project coming to fruition one day. Recently, del Toro touched on the heartbreaking Silent Hills cancellation and its potential future.
In an interview with IGN, del Toro mentioned that Silent Hills—which was going to include Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear) on the creative side and feature Norman Reedus in the lead role—would have displayed "cutting-edge" technology to enhance its terror. Del Toro, who is also a big fan of the first two Silent Hill games, went on to discuss his desire for Silent Hills to be resurrected by a different company:
“We wanted to do some stuff that I’m pretty sure – just in case it ever comes back, which honestly I would love for somebody to change their mind and we can do it – but in »

There was truly rich potential in the planned Silent Hills collaboration between lauded designer Hideo Kojima, beloved genre filmmaker Guillermo del Toro and star Norman Reedus. The playable trailer took many by scary storm, creating an intense atmosphere and igniting anticipation across the board. So of course many were devastated by the abrupt cancellation of…

Silent Hills, the much anticipated collaboration between Guillermo Del Toro and Hideo Kojima, has been abruptly cancelled – and what made that news even more shocking was that its demo was one of the best in living memory. Showing off the developer’s deftness at pacing and in-game atmosphere, P.T. (the Playable Teaser) did more to sell the game than a hundred trailers featuring Norman Reedus’ face ever could. Its cancellation remains crushingly disappointing.
But then, gamers are no strangers to this. How many times have games promised to be the ‘revolutionise gaming as you know it’ and failed to deliver? Assassin’s Creed: Unity was a buggy mess, Watch Dogs received a considerable graphical downgrade by the time it came to retail and the less said about The Order: 1886, the better.
However, being disappointed after watching beautifully crafted CG trailers is almost acceptable. It’s happened enough that »

Pop culture comes to life in St. Louis next month! It’s the Wizard World Comic Con May 22nd through the 24th at America’s Center downtown (701 Convention Plaza – St. Louis, Mo 63101). As usual, Wizard World has an impressive line-up of celebrity guests including Elvira, Christian Kane, and George Romero, but the star I’m most excited to meet is actor Michael Rooker.
Michael Rooker was born in Jasper, Alabama in 1955. He has eight brothers and sisters. His parents divorced when he was 13 years old, and he moved with his mother and siblings to Chicago, Illinois, where he studied at the Goodman School of Drama. Rooker made his feature film debut by playing the title character in the gritty 1985 horror classic Henry Portrait Of A Serial Killer. He followed this with significant big-screen roles in Tombstone, Days Of Thunder, Cliffhanger, JFK, Mississippi Burning, Sea Of Love, The Dark Half, Mallrats, »

A new trailer for Guillermo del Toro‘s “Crimson Peak” has dropped, and it promises lots of creeps in store for audiences as they watch star Mia Wasikowska get haunted by a lot of ghouls. Wasikowska plays an aspiring author who believes “ghosts are real” before being swept away by a suitor, played by Tom Hiddleston, to a house that is chock-full of them. Jessica Chastain co-stars alongside Hiddleston as his sister, who appears to be keeping a dark secret from Wasikowska, and Charlie Hunnam reunites with his “Pacific Rim” director for a role, too.

If you, like us, are still mourning the cancellation of Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro’s Silent Hills, a Change.org petition calling for the creative pair to return to the ill-fated project may offer some solace.
At the time of writing, the passionate battle cry has accumulated over 80,000 signatures, and though it’s unlikely that the online rally will impact Konami’s seemingly steadfast stance on the canned horror game, the heartfelt poll is admirable nonetheless.
Spearheaded by user Yauheni, the open letter addresses Kojima and del Toro directly with one earnest request: to return to Silent Hills and deliver on what was once promised.
Dear Hideo and Guillermo,
Hearing the cancellation of one of the most anticipated horror games is about the most heartbreaking thing horror fans had to swallow this year. Since the first sight of the P.T Demo it was instant love, and it »

Rick and his posse are trapped in a train car as they await a grim fate at the hands of the Terminus inhabitants.
Warning: potential “Walking Dead” season five spoilers ahead. In a season filled with memorable moments, Norman Reedus said that one stood out for him in season five of AMC’s “The Walking Dead.” “I liked us in the barn. Yeah, we’re in the barn, we’re getting overrun by walkers and the storm comes up,” Reedus said during TheWrap’s “Drinking with the Stars.” “We were such at a broken spot in our storyline. Everyone was so down and starving and dying of thirst and so beaten up.” The moment came during episode 10, when the group was still reeling »

The Hunger Games met The Daily Show on Monday. Jon Stewart used a large portion of his show to mock CNN's decision to cover the White House Correspondents' Dinner over growing unrest in Baltimore during the weekend. Stewart showed clips of journalists gushing about celebrities at the dinner, including The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus, even as protests raged it Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray, who died April 19 while in police custody. Stewart brought in Jessica Williams, who impersonated Elizabeth Banks' The Hunger Games character Effie Trinket. She worried the protesters would mar the festivities in the capitol. "Our hearts

It was rumoured for a while after both Norman Reedus and Guillermo del Toro expressed their concern for the game’s future, but now Konami have officially confirmed that Silent Hills has been cancelled.
While Konami originally offered no additional comment on the matter, they eventually disclosed the truth to Kotaku, saying: “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.”
The confirmation of the project’s cancellation comes mere weeks after it was revealed that Hideo Kojima was looking to leave the company. Speaking to his fans, del Toro was quoted as saying “it’s not gonna happen,”, while the company’s contract with Norman Reedus, whose likeness was due to appear in the game, had expired.
However, the publisher said: “In terms of Kojima and Del Toro being involved, »

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.

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.

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. »
