...for messing with my favorite videogame series.

Kidding. That was actually in bad taste, and here's why. Screenwriter Roger Avary (Pulp Fiction) is sitting in the slammer for causing a traffic accident in Southern California, says Comingsoon. The recently appointed Silent Hill 2 screenwriter plead guilty of gross vehicular manslaughter and drunken driving for a fatal accident that he caused last year. It was reported that he was driving over 100 mph. Drunk and that fast? That's scarier (and sh*ttier) than any horror game adaptation I've seen.

For those that aren't looking forward to the movie, this could be a blessing. This could actually delay the movie. I'm looking forward to the film, so I'm hoping that Avary will work from his cell in jail. They get pen and paper, right?
