Scorsese never know what to expect for his next project. He’s expressed interest in a number of projects and become attached to many, so you never know, but it appears he’s settled on Silence — for now. If you track Scorsese’s every move then you’ve heard about this one already, but it’s based on Shusako Endo’s novel about Jesuit missionaries facing persecution in feudal era Japan. He’s been discussing the project ever since his his Oscar-winning effort The Departed back in
made his intent known on the British radio show Radio Five, stating that he is “hoping
to do Endo’s book next… not hoping, we’re literally pulling all the elements
together at this point.” If he gets his way, it sounds like it will put his
most recently announced project, an adaptation of Norwegian thriller novel The
Snowman, on the backburner.
he wants his original cast though, Scorsese may have to wait a little longer; Bleedingcool highlights the busy schedule of intended star Daniel Day Lewis, who’s
currently shooting Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln. Benicio Del Toro and Gael García Bernal have also been linked to the film.
Silence is just one of the
many projects Scorsese has been talking up over the last few years, including a
reteaming with Robert De Niro in The Irishman
and a Frank Sinatra biopic.
