Martin Scorsese has plans to make Silence again, and does a table read of The Irishman

Jan. 18, 2013by:

Moving from DiCaprio to Scorsese, the director is already trying to get another project in order after THE WOLF OF WALL STREET is said and done.

Scorsese is eyeing SILENCE for his next film. This has been a passion project for the director, who has been trying to get around to it for some time now. The film's story is adapted from Shusaku Endo's novel, "about 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." Sounds like a fun time, right? Well, it may not be a laugh riot by any means, but I'm sure that if he gets to work on it, that since it is something he's been wanting to do so desperately that it will be at least decent by Scorsese standards. He'd like to start production in 2014.

Moving on to news of another Scorsese project, there was a read of THE IRISHMAN at the Tribeca Film Center. The director is looking to get some investors to back the film. Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci were all on hand to read their parts. The film is based on the book, I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt. The plot centers on, "Frank Sheeran (De Niro), a WWII veteran who led a colorful life as a high ranking officer in the International Brotherhood of Teamsters while also dabbling in organized crime as a highly-sought-after hitman. He reportedly also had ties to the deaths of President Kennedy and Jimmy Hoffa."

I'm sure he won't have any problem getting some cash for it.

What will he do without DiCaprio?

Irishmen

Love to see Pacino, DeNiro, and Pesci together in a Scorsese mob flick. Let's get this thing going!
Please leave DiCaprio out of SILENCE. Let him save the world for a little while... apparently by "flying around" the world. Not a good start.

Please get the Irishman rolling. What a dream team De Niro, Pacino, and Pesci is. If anyone can wash the taste of Righteous Kill out of our mouths it's Marty.

Can't wait for the day that BOTH DeNiro and DiCaprio are casted in the same Scorsese film. Now that will be something great.

Scorsese for the win

Thats one of the things i love about Scorsese, he always has his next big project coming up. He's a New Hollywood director that has consistently worked with a new film every 2 years or so, and have all be great films. Coppola has had only 2 films in the last 15 years and they havent been all that great (generally speaking), Friedkin finally had a good movie with "Killer Joe" after so long. Spielberg's next project is usually a mystery, he's got at least a dozen projects in the pipeline and you

Spielberg's next project is usually a mystery, he's got at least a dozen projects in the pipeline and you never really know what he's gonna do next. But With Scorsese, you know what his next project is after completing his last and you know for sure its gonna be pretty good. Can't wait

thanks for the correction. I actually heard Bug wasn't that good. It didnt look all that good to me either so i skipped it when it came out and havent really heard anything about it since.

Spot on assessment of Scorsese, couldnt agree more! I just wanted to correct you with Coppola; he made 3 films in the last 15 years and Friedkin also made a great movie called "Bug" a few years ago before "Killer Joe". If you enjoyed the recent movie I highly recommend it, both films share the same writer.

Can't find investors? I'm sure a lot of people would buy a ticket just to watch that table read.

I Heard You Paint Houses.
I fucking adore that title (especially if you know what it means) and think it's such a shame that they've always planned to not use it for the adaptation.

Scorsese, just make The Irishman. Reunite the cast of Goodfellas and include DiCaprio and Pacino, and I guarantee you'll win some awards.
