With the film currently shooting in Toronto, the cast for the upcoming sequel, SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D, is finally rounding out.

Deadline is reporting that both Carrie-Anne Moss and Malcolm McDowell have joined the cast of the upcoming film, being directed by Michael J. Bassett.

The film will see the return of Radha Mitchell, Sean Bean, and Deborah Kara Unger, as well as Adelaide Clemens and Kit Harington, and will see Moss playing a cult leader and McdDwell as a man who has “alternating airs of leadership one moment and loathsome crazy the next.” Well, that’s just plain bizarre.

Personally, as a fan of the first film and the video game franchise, I do think that there could be quite a bit mined here, and hopefully, given this cast, it could ultimately work out well. I don’t have my hopes up for this one,  but with a really solid cast and an interesting bit of source material, this could be quite worthwhile.

In other casting news, Rob Riggle has been cast as the main villain in the upcoming film, 21 JUMP STREET. The film will star Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, and while he may be the “main villain,” it does seem as though he won’t be the only one. Now, while I’m not a huge fan of Riggle, this does seem like a fun fit, and one that makes me quite interested in checking out the film.
