Silent Hills actor Norman Reedus has faith that he ‘can do something else’ with Kojima and Del Toro

Norman Reedus, the actor who was supposed to be the star in Kojima’s Silent Hills, commented on the new cancelled project in an interview with IGN.

I’m super bummed that that happened back in Japan, but I have faith. I have faith that we, the three of us, can do something else.

Announced in 2014, Hideo Kojima and filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro were going to work together on a new game in Konami’s horror franchise Silent Hill. Unfortunately the project was cancelled earlier this year, most likely as a result of Konami’s drastic restructuring and Kojima’s supposed departure.

Silent-Hills-Character

However, fans are still hoping the collaboration will be revived somehow, and with both Del Toro and Reedus making clear they would like to collaborate with this team in the future, this may very well not be the last we hear from the project. If they are going to work together without Konami’s involvement, it obviously won’t be called Silent Hills, but perhaps the spirit of the game could be revived under a new name. Let’s hope so at least.

    I want to believe.

  • Venom_Sina

    I think they will revive SH under a different name, “inSANE” maybe.I think del Toro and Reedus are waiting for the departure to happen and then BOOM.With these talks we hear everyday (comments by del Toro and Reedus),something inside me is certain that they WILL work together.

    • Tom Brearley-Smith

      Besides, del Toro was meant to make a game with THQ known as “inSANE” but it got canned due to THQ filing for bankruptcy.

      • Venom_Sina

        Yeah,I mentioned it in my comment.The rights for the IP is in del Toro’s hands now,so it’s easy to use that name.

  • “can do something else”

    I hope so. But I hope so that it is a videogame. Del Toro recently said that he’s kinda over the whole videogame development thing. Link:

    At this point I want something from Hideo Kojima and I hope so that he won’t abandon his “stealth-gameplay” roots. After MGSV, Kojima proved that he is a master in that genre.

    • Venom_Sina

      Yeah,he worked on stealth games for 28 years.I think that’s enough,lol.If he works on something completely new it would be cooler.If he continue to work on stealth genre,there’s a high chance that we get a MG clone IMO.

      • Not really. Del Toro recently told that they were looking at the Last Of Us.

        Link: http://www.technobuffalo.com/2015/10/14/silent-hills-had-something-in-common-with-the-last-of-us-says-del-toro/

        The Last Of Us is a survival acion game with “”stealth elements””. Previously Naughty Dog did for example Uncharted games which are a 3rd person shooter/adventure games with “”stealth elements””

        Why not make a good Stealth-survival-horror game?

        Stealth genre can be different. Look at the Thief games.

        Kojima IMO should not abandon his previous work. He should improve them in a different game/new Ip. Something completely new is impossible to make. It’s not 1980s where you can create genre’s. Innovation is super hard these days. Even graphics today does not have drastic improvement from the previous generation.

  • Gatsu

    It’s great that they all still really want to do something together after what happened.

    I believe we might see something cool in the upcoming years :).

    • Spectralbuttplug

      Yeah.

  • kuaikukia

    would love to see them together on next project. Too bad P.T silent hill is cancelled, the news still gives me a horror

      I hope we will never see Kojima-Sensei break the 4th wall like that again.

  • Gatsu

    Not sure has anyone here followed the MGS1 remake project with Unreal Engine, but the creator showed model for Snake now and few new images. Looks pretty sweet :).

    I just wonder if it gets cancelled :O…

    • Venom_Sina

      Yeah,I saw the pics on Twitter.Fantastic.I think they even released a playable demo a few days ago.Can’t wait to play it.Thanks for sharing,bro.

      • Gatsu

        I think a friend of mine in Steam tried the demo and he said it was good. It would be quite awesome to play that if gets completed :D.

    • Full Options

      Saw part of the levels before, but this Snake looks damn good ! 😀

    • FoxTamerMGO

      Snake’s face in MGS1 looks skinny compared to this one.. but it looks cool anyways ;’D

    • SiodogRehane

      sorry folk but that is going down as soon as konami sees it there was another MG remake that even included david hayter for voice of snake but konami shut it down

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      FOX Engine remake pls

      Looks really good. Hope it doesn’t get shut down.

  • JoJo

    If they make something and it’s a hit, I’d love to see the face of Konami’s executives.
    You brought them together, and you could have had a slice of the cake. You made your choice with Kojima.

  • Jav

    This “future game” and p.t. was one of the, not many, reasons for me to bought the ps4. And, off course, because I was expecting tpp to come sooner to console than pc.

  • XIFF-5

    Some information for the update coming in December https://twitter.com/MGSMGN/status/666242361547096065

    for FOB and MGO.
    looks awesome!

    • Raven_Sorrow

      those looked like mods.. in the raiden video, what the hell was that hip weapon?!

    • Meumels

      Skulls?! This is madness!¡¿

      Also “friend connectivity enhanced to allow friend supporters including infiltration.” Does this mean co-op infiltrations?

      • Raven_Sorrow

        O.o sounds too good to be true

      • JoJo

        No, I think that it just means it will let you choose supporters from your friends list.

        • Meumels

          That would also be a big improvement.

  • Raven_Sorrow

    Guys help!! How do i report a bug?!!!

    • Raven_Sorrow

      found it, https://uk.secure.konami-europe.com/ics/support/TSFolder.asp

      IMPORTANT: Don’t dismiss your interpreters!!! I fired the 4 because they are low level and i was trying to raise the support unit staff to level 95 to develop the level 8 kabarga and they keep coming back, AND THEY DOUBLED!! Now i have 11 low levels that keep returning lowering my staff level to 94 :'(

      • Raven_Sorrow

        Look at this crap X'(

        • Meumels

          Can’t you just place them in the waiting room? Or put them in the brig for screwing up your plans.

          • Raven_Sorrow

            They always come back!! if i play a mission or a fob, at the beginning i get the “support unit level down lv.94” yellow message and there they are at the support unit

            🙁

          • N-Shifter

            How about a combat deployment that requires support staff along with your combat staff, I think you can choose who you want to send on the mission so you could send all the duplicates on the mission and hope that they don’t make it back.

            Worth a try 🙂

          • Raven_Sorrow

            Imaginative, but i don’t have low level combat units to lose on purpose XDD maybe if i can send incomplete teams… but im scared while these go on mission more duplicates appear :/ im going to try it. brb

  • Lewis

    Guys, it seems I am VERY GOOD at capturing people…

    • Raven_Sorrow

      HEHE a friend of mine had that glitch too XD i begged for him to show me on the staff management.. the brig was empty X’DD

      • Lewis

        Yeah, I “restarted” the iDroid, and the bug is gone now. I’m glad I didn’t miss it. 😀

    • Jav

      After the update mine was like that too, but now is ok.
      I just want to know where are my soldiers going. Even if I’m offline the numbers decrease.

  • Frank Jaeger

    Now the question: what will be Hideo Kojima’s chosen game engine, if he will be return as Game Creator?

    • Full Options

      I think it will heavily depend on various factors such as the chosen gameplay type, the team opinion and potential skills regarding available commercial or even free engines. They could also plan to build a specific one for their next game. It would be cool if Merceron could still be on board… What is sure is that if they decide to develop something like SH, they will have far less difficulties to choose one or develop it compared to if they had to build a stealth MG like title.

  • PrinceHeir

    I’m mainly interested with Ito-san being involve.
