Guillermo Del Toro recently expressed his desire to continue his work in completing the “Silent Hills” game along with “The Walking Dead” star Norman Reedus. The director/writer also revealed his and Hideo Kojima’s supposed plans for the game.

Guillermo Del Toro expressed his disappointment at the cancellation of “Silent Hills” during a recent interview with IGN about his new film “Crimson Peak.” The director revealed that he, along with many fans, was also devastated considering his collaboration with Kojima in developing the game was progressing beautifully. “We had an agreement on how we were going to push the new platforms,” he revealed. However, despite the cancellation Del Toro expressed how he is not giving up hope on the game and even volunteered to have his name added to the internet petition asking to push “Silent Hills” back into development.

“I know there’s a petition going on the internet and it’s gathering signatures. I would add my signature to it and hope that someone pays attention,” he said.

The director also revealed how “The Walking Dead” star Norman Reedus was attached to play the lead role in “Silent Hills.” Guillermo Del Toro revealed that not only was he and Kojima happy over the game’s progress but that Reedus was also considering he’s involvement in the game.

During his IGN interview, Guillermo Del Toro also revealed his and Kojima’s plans in developing “Silent Hills.” “What we wanted to do with the game -- and we were very much in agreement on this -- was to take the technology and make it as cutting-edge as we could in creating terror in the house,” he revealed.

He also assured that what he and Kojima wanted for “Silent Hills,” if ever the game goes back into development is for it to have some very new stuff. However, the director held back on further game details as to not spoil it.

According to Cinema Blend, “Silent Hills” was cancelled after its planned game developer Hideo Kojima had a falling out with Konami. Following Kojima’s exit, the Playable Teaser for “Silent Hills,” which was given as a free download for the PS4, was removed by Konami on its system.
