Martin Scorsese's Silence (2010)
There has been talk of another Departed film but it doesn't look like that project is moving fast enough. Scorsese's next film will be a period piece based on the novel by Shusaku Endo. While I highly enjoyed Gangs Of New York the film did drag on an extra 40mins. I'm hoping Scorsese is willing to do a lot more editing this time around. The cast so far is very impressive and I hope the Japanese cast is just as strong. "Set in the 17th century and focuses on two Jesuit priests that face violence and persecution when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor and to spread the gospel of Christianity."
Daniel Day-Lewis, Benicio Del Toro and Gael García Bernal (Motorcycle Diaries) are attached to star.
