After 20 years in development, Martin Scorsese will finally begin filming Silence in 2014

Martin Scorsese has been talking about adapting the novel SILENCE since 1991. He has gone through various stages of development including a lawsuit from a producer for filming THE WOLF OF WALL STREET before SILENCE. Well, after all that hullabaloo, Scorsese has secured funding for SILENCE as part of a two picture deal, with production slated to begin next summer.

SILENCE is going to be a much different film than what Scorsese has made in recent years. The dense novel by Shusaku Endo focuses on religion, a topic that Martin Scorsese has not tackled since his 1997 film KUNDUN. But, while that film was about the Dalai Lama, this movie will be about Christianity. Here's a brief plot synopsis:

Two 17th century Jesuit priests who face violence and persecution when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor and to spread the gospel of Christianity.

At various stages we have heard actors linked to this project have included Benicio Del Toro, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Gael Garcia Bernal. Could we potentially find Leonardo DiCaprio or even Robert De Niro reuniting with Scorsese to film this movie? With THE WOLF OF WALL STREET set for release in November, SILENCE could be another potential Oscar contender for the 70 year old director. I will see anything he directs, regardless of plot, so bring on SILENCE.

When was the last time you heard someone say "i wonder what Scorsese is going to do next"?

the guy does what he loves and loves what he does, and thats make movies. And i feel he's one of the few directors that you can really tell he's having fun by watching his films. His films are always breaking new ground for his career and never disappoints the audience. Keep em coming Marty!

Why not just Daniel Day-Lewis, Benicio Del Toro, and Gael Garcia Bernal?

That's what I thought. Love to see Scorsese work with Del Toro and/or Garcia, or reunite with Day-Lewis, as that's always worked well for him.

can't wait!!!!

but pleeeeeeeeeeeease no Leonardo DiCaprio, I love the guy but am absolutely sick of him in every single Scorsese movie. I'm really hoping DiCaprio's hiatus from acting means he won't be in this movie (or any future Scorsese movies). I would very very very much like to see De Niro reunite with Scorsese though!
