Ewan McGregor is a choice. Sadly ... and more over fortunately I do not think anyone has the balls to try and pull off a SH2 movie. I say sadly because I'd love to see it and fortunately because I think it would be very difficult to capture what SH2 was in a film....

True.

I think the best way to handle a Silent Hill film is to have a completely new story with new characters.

Not sure how well that'd go over since most people would rather that all go into a new game, instead.

I was going to do this with images combining the game character with their actor for a comparison, but it was taking too long, maybe later. Someone else is more than welcome to if they'd like. But here's my casts for adaptations of the first three SH games and also some select characters from other installments.


Silent Hill

Harry Mason - Chris Evans
Cybil Bennett - Sarah Gadon
Dahlia Gillespie - Deborah Kara Unger
Alessa Gillespie/Cheryl Mason - Dafne Keene
Lisa Garland - Sara Canning
Michael Kaufman - Anthony LaPaglia


Silent Hill 2

James Sunderland - Jake Abel
Mary Shepherd Sunderland/Maria - Candice Accola
Eddie Dombrowski - Jesse Plemons
Angela Orosco - Sofia Black-D'Elia
Laura - Amiah Miller
Pyramid Head - Roberto Campanella


Silent Hill 3

Heather Mason - Maika Monroe
Claudia Wolf - Katheryn Winnick
Vincent Smith - Aaron Taylor-Johnson
Douglas Cartland - Michael Rooker
Leonard Wolf - Doug Jones


Misc. Characters

Travis Grady - Chris Pine
Murphy Pendleton - William Moseley
Elle Holloway - Johanna Braddy



I figured why not have Deborah reprise Dahlia, as she said she enjoyed that character and it'd be kinda cool if she got to be the much more sinister Dahlia of the original game, plus she's now closer in age these days to how Dahlia is in the game. Roberto did a great job as PH in the original two movies and deserves to return as him, and in a proper SH2 adaptation of all things. Trying to think of who else for the other characters.

I really like some of those picks!

Some of them are really spot on.


Dafne Keene is a great pick for Alessa.

Thanks, glad you like them :) I knew Dafne would be perfect for Alessa/Cheryl after seeing her in Logan. She bears more than a passing resemblance to both characters and she can act.

I'm trying to find a good image-combining site where I can combine images of the game characters with the actors I picked. Some of them bear a dead-on resemblance and it'd be cool to see them side by side.

The two actresses I had always thought would do a great job as Silent Hill characters are:

Blake Livley as Mary/Maria

and

Anna Paquin as Angela

Both are good choices. Anna might be a bit old these days at 35 for Angela, but I definitely could've seen her in the role back then. Had we gotten a proper SH1 movie back in the early 2000s, I think Bill Pullman would've been perfect for Harry. Looks exactly like him in many of the CG cutscenes.

I gotta say that there is a pretty decent fit here too...

He actually wouldn't be bad. He looks enough like him and is a decent enough actor when you distance him from his teen stardom days. Plus he's not far off from Harry's age in SH1, where he's supposedly 32.

Found this image of Jake Gyllenhaal as Harry while browsing for some SH fan art and it's funny because he's one of my other choices for Harry and I can definitely see him as Harry, moreso after this. I nearly casted him as Harry in my SH1 cast, it was a toss-up between him or Chris Evans and I very narrowly went with the latter. But I think both would do Harry justice and you couldn't go wrong with either. There's also this Harry fanart I found where Harry definitely bears more than a passing resemblance to Chris.
