Norman Reedus Comments on Silent Hills' Reported Cancellation

posted on by Egan Loo

The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus posted his reaction to reports that director Guillermo del Toro said their Silent Hills game project is not going to happen.

Photojournalist Matt Hackney had reported that del Toro gave an update on the project's status during the San Francisco International Film Festival on Saturday. Konami will stop distributing "P.T.", the playable teaser of Silent Hills, on Wednesday.

The title would have featured game director Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear), acclaimed film director Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy, Mimic, Blade II, Pacific Rim), and actor Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead, Mimic, Blade II, Iron Man: Rise of Technovore). The credits listed Kojima Production (with its Fox Engine software) and Konami.

During Konami's restructuring in March, there were unconfirmed rumors that Kojima would be leaving the company after completing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Konami has not yet addressed the rumors. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is slated to ship for multiple consoles worldwide on September 1.
