Day-Lewis and Del Toro to star in Shusaku Endo adaptation?


Variety is reporting that Daniel Day Lewis and Benicio Del Toro are in negotiations to star in Martin Scorcese’s next film, an adaptation of Shusaku Endo’s masterpiece novel “Silence.”

The story centers around two 17th century Jesuit priests who face violence and persecution when they travel to Japan as missionaries.

Scorcese has reportedly had the project on his radar for more than a decade.
