Sony Pictures' upcoming Silent Hill movie is hoping to break the long-running cycle of terrible movies adapted from video games. Curiously enough, their plan involves hiring a proven writer and director! Clever folks over there in Culver City. Their way of thinking is so unusual it's almost "Otherworldly," lending the above billboard -- located just outside Sony Studios in Culver City -- a certain credibility.

Either that or they're referring to what might happen when Ken Kutaragi activates the PlayStation 3's fourth-dimensional SPU during their scheduled E3 keynote in Culver City this May.
