Silent Hill 2 screenwriter sentenced to a year in jail

...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?
