Silence, Martin Scorsese Director

 

One of Martin Scorsese’s longest development passion projects has been the movie Silence. The story, about two Jesuit priests played by Adam Driver and Andrew Garfield, who go looking for their mentor played by Liam Neeson in 17th Century Japan, a time when outsiders, and especially Christians, were treated with disdain and mistrust. Filming wrapped almost a year ago in May 2015 but since, there hasn’t been an official release date announced. Thanks to a report at ScreenDaily, sources say Paramount is reportedly lining up a US release this November, just in time for awards buzz and consideration. While a release date hasn’t been targeted officially, it seems clear that Paramount is confident enough to hone in on the month of November, hoping for audiences to turn out and Oscar buzz.

Shûsaku Endô was born on March 27, 1923 in Sugamo, Tokyo, Japan. He was a writer and actor, known for Silence (1971), The Sea and Poison (1986) and Silence (2016). He was married to Okada Junko. He died on September 29, 1996 in Tokyo.
