Martin Scorsese Revives Adaptation of ‘Silence’ for His Next Project

Nearly three years ago, there were rumblings that director Martin Scorsese (who has the fantastic film Hugo in theaters right now) would take on an adaptation of Shusako Endo’s novel Silence, the story of missionaries in 17th Century Japan, with Daniel Day-Lewis and Benicio del Toro attached to star. The project hadn’t made any progress since then, but in a recent interview on Simon Mayo and Mark Kermode‚Äôs Radio Five show (via Bleeding Cool), Scorsese said he’s actually looking to take on the film as his next project. That might mean his confirmed adaptation of The Snowman is likely on the backburner now. Check out the full story at First Showing.
