In theaters this Christmas, Silence tells the story of two Christian missionaries sent to Japan in the seventeenth century at a time when Christianity was outlawed.
Paramount Pictures will finally given Martin Scorsese's latest drama Silence a limited run this holiday season.
Director Martin Scorsese has secured financing for his 20-year passion project Silence, with filming set to begin January 30 in Taiwan.
Based on Shusako Endo's novel, Martin Scorsese's Silence follows two Jesuit priests trying to spread Christianity in Japan.
Andrew Garfield and Ken Watanabe are attached to headline this drama about 17th Century Jesuits attempting to bring Christianity to Japan.
Ken Watanabe is co-starring in this adaptation of Shusaku Endo's novel about a Portugese priest who travels to Japan to confront his mentor.
The filmmaker says he is considering the possibility but will only use if it's the right tool.
