Guillermo del Toro is not working on a new Silent Hill project, despite fan speculation following the Oscar-winning director’s recent tease at The Game Awards.
“No, not at all,” del Toro said in a recent interview on the Happy Sad Confused podcast when asked if he was working on any Silent Hill-related projects. At The Game Awards, del Toro said he loved the art direction of Silent Hill and hoped for a new game in the horror franchise.
“It’s just one of those things in my life that makes no sense,” del Toro said about the canceled Silent Hills, which saw del Toro collaborating with Hideo Kojima while the Metal Gear creator was still working for Konami. “I kind of just wanted to tickle the ribs of Konami, because I don’t understand. That was so perfect, what we were going to do was so enthralling.”
