The American Film Market started yesterday in Santa Monica, California and fans of the movie based on Konami's uber popular survival horror franchise, 'Silent Hill,' may be interested in learning that a director has been tapped for the long-awaited sequel -- and he's a horror guy.

STYD learned that 'Death Watch' and 'Solomon Kane' director Michael J. Bassett will be helming 'Silent Hill: Revelations,' which is headed for 3D territory. The protagonist is none other than Heather Mason, the main character in the third game, who heads to Silent Hill to investigate the disappearance of her father after a nightmare begins to haunt her before her 18th birthday. No one knows how closely the film will actually follow the game's plot, or if any of the first movie's cast will be making a return.
