While most films tend to hold true to the statement “all video game movies suck," there are the occasional gems.

One of those gems, SILENT HILL, is set to see a sequel, and with shooting starting Monday in Toronto, the cast is beginning to form and be revealed.

THR is reporting that Adelaide Clemens and Kit Harrington have signed on to star in the upcoming film, set to be helmed by SOLOMON KANE director Michael J. Bassett. It’s unclear as to whether or not Sean Bean will be reprising his role as the father in the film, but it’s indeed an important role, as this sequel will be looking at the relationship between daughter and father:

“For years, Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. Now on the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by terrifying nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she's not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her in Silent Hill forever.”

Personally, while I’m not deeply familiar with the pair of actors (Clemens had a role in X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE and Harrington will star in the upcoming Game Of Thrones), I do have quite a bit of hope for this film. I was a fan of the first film, so while it doesn’t totally appear as though this will be a watershed film in the history of video game cinema, it doesn’t sound like it’ll be the worst.
