Director Martin Scorsese has been very busy the last year trying to get his new project The Wolf of Wall Street into the theaters and onto his trophy shelf. The film experienced several problems during production, including cuts that had to be made for both time and content, but it was all worth the wait. Wall Street has already been nominated for five Oscars and also won Leonardo DiCaprio a Golden Globe for Best Actor. Now the director is moving on to his next project Silence, a film based on the novel of the same name by Shusaku Endo. The story follows a pair of Jesuit priests in the 17th century persecution-era of Christianity, who travel to Japan to spread their faith and to search for their friend and mentor. According to Deadline Hollywood, actors Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider Man) and Liam Neeson (Taken, Nell) will be leading the cast, along with Adam Driver and Ken Watanabe. The film is scheduled for release in 2015, and is supposed to begin shooting in Taiwan later this year.
