Silent Hill Director Helming Onimusha

Love him or hate him, but Christophe Gans, the guy behind the Silent Hill film, is helming the movie adaptation of Capcom’s Onimusha. This comes from IGN, as they report that Gans will direct the film for Samuel Hadida’s Davis Films, the production company behind both Silent Hill and Brotherhood of the Wolf, both Gans’ films.

As per their report, the film has a staggering budget of $70 million and is being shopped around to prospective buyers, with several studios showing interest. The movie has been penned by Leslie Kruger and John Collee (Master and Commander), and filming is set to begin in China next February for a late 2009 release.
