Marty breaking the 'Silence'


Martin Scorsese is planning to film his next project on his slate: Silence. A 17th century drama about a pair of Jesuit priests searching for their mentor in Japan while spreading the word of Jesus Christ. This will be Marty's first theological themed film since the controversial 1988 The Last Temptation of Christ. It is adapted by Jay Cocks from a novel by Shusaku Endo and it's apparently been a project he's been wanting to do for ages now. What just got good got better since now Scorsese has signed on Benicio Del Toro (Traffic, Che) and the milkshake drinking master himself Mr. Daniel Day- Lewis. This will be Mr. Day-Lewis' third outing with Scorsese with his previous two being The Age of Innocence and Gangs of New York.

Scorsese is a director whose films are ones I am there for on opening day in theaters. Silence will be no exception.
