Silent Hills Video Game With Norman Reedus & Guillermo del Toro Gets Axed



How cool does a Silent Hills horror video game sound featuring The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus with Guillermo del Toro involved?

Well, it did sound cool up until it was learned Konami cancelled the project.

About nine months ago Konami first teased the video game with a fan reaction video, which featured Reedus at the end of the trailer.

Now it's learned the game won't be happening.

Concerns first surfaced regarding the game's future when it was learned Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima would be leaving Konami, as Kojima was involved in the project with Reedus and Guillermo del Toro. In addition, reports surfaced that Sony was yanking the teaser from the PS Store.

The speculation was then followed by both Norman Reedus and Guillermo del Toro stating the game isn't happening, and now Konami confirms as much; however, it seems Silent Hills might be getting put on the backburner - without Reedus or Guillermo del Toro's involvement.

Reps for Konami told Gamespot they wouldn't comment on the rumors, but did offer: "We will continue to develop the Silent Hill series."

Apparently Reedus' contract expired, and Konami chose not to renew it.
