Roger Avary goes to Jail – Silent Hill 2 may be on hold

Posted by LiveFor on October 1, 2009

77450636PS177_Premiere_Of_PA recently-announced sequel to Silent Hill might be on hold. The LA Times is reporting that Silent Hill 2 screenwriter Roger Avary has been sentenced to a year in jail, stemming from a drunk-driving accident that took the life of a passenger.

The co-writer of hits such as “Pulp Fiction” and “Beowulf” pleaded guilty in August to gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and other charges stemming from the Jan. 13, 2008, crash.

Avary, 44, was at the wheel of a Mercedes sedan that was traveling at more than 100 mph when it crashed into a telephone pole, according to investigators.

Passenger Andreas Zini, 34, was killed, and Avary’s wife, Gretchen, was ejected from the vehicle and suffered serious injuries. Zini and his wife, both of Italy, were visiting the Avarys on their honeymoon, authorities said.

It isn’t quite clear yet how Avary’s sentencing will affect Silent Hill 2, which was announced two weeks ago. However, when originally announced, it was said that production on the film was set to start as early as next year.
