Roger Avary of Pulp Fiction and Killing Zoe fame wrote the first Silent Hill movie. He was also slated to write the second one.

But, in 2008, an intoxicated Avary was involved in a car accident that left a close friend of his dead and put his wife in the hospital. The Oscar-winning scribe was charged with vehicular manslaughter.

Fast forward to fall 2009 when the filmmaker began blogging from what seemed like prison — it was later revealed that he was tweeting from a Ventura County work furlough program and not in "prison" per se. Avary was sent to prison for the rest of his one year-sentence. He did not tweet his experiences.

Horror magazine asked Silent Hill 2 producer Don Carmody about the status of the picture. "A little stalled now because of [writer/director] Roger Avary's [legal problems], so a little unsure yet," Carmody said. "The original plan was Roger writing and polishing the screenplay, and when he had finished his thing, we'd begin full-blown preproduction." He is not sure of the current status.

"We know we want to make Silent Hill 2 and have a basic outline for it. We'll have to see."

Avary apparently was released from Ventura County Prison last month.

We have movement - and a release date! In the US at least, Silent Hill: Revelation will be hitting theaters on October 26.

Sean Bean, Deborah Kara Unger and Radha Mitchell will be returning to the story directed by Michael J. Bassett. Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father (Bean) have been running from dangerous and mysterious forces that the young girl doesn't fully understand. Eventually all is revealed, sinking her deeper into a demonic world.

I actually enjoyed the first one, and hoping this gets the atmosphere right...
