According to Variety, Martin Scorsese is aiming to make Japan-set passion project Silence his next film, the helmer declared Sunday at the fifth Marrakech Film Festival in Morocco.
The adaptation of a Japanese novel by Shusaku Endo is the martyrdom-themed tale of two 17th century Portuguese missionaries who return to Japan to minister to Christians, who've been outlawed. Project is being moved by Initial Entertainment Group's chief Graham King.
"I hope it comes together. I've been trying to make the movie for 10 years," Scorsese said at a press conference.
