Paramount in talks to distribute Martin Scorsese historical drama “Silence”

PanARMENIAN.Net - Paramount Pictures is in negotiations to acquire distribution rights to Martin Scorsese's latest picture, the historical drama Silence, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Liam Neeson and Ken Watanabe star in the adaptation of the Shusako Endo novel, which has a script by Jay Cocks and Scorsese.

The historical novel, written in 1966, tells the story of two 17th century Portuguese missionaries who undertake a perilous journey to Japan in search of their mentor.

Silence will be the fourth Scorsese film in a row to be released by Paramount since 2010’s Shutter Island. (Hugo and The Wolf of Wall Street were the others.)
