Paramount Pictures is in negotiations to buy the US distribution rights to Martin Scorsese’s historical drama ‘Silence’.
Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, Ken Watanabe and Adam Driver are starring with production expected to start in Taiwan later this year. ‘Silence’ is financed by Emmett/Furla/Oasis.
Garfield will star as Father Rodrigues, a 17th-century Portuguese Jesuit who travels to Japan with a fellow priest amid rumors that Rodrigues’ mentor has abandoned the Church. When they arrive, they find the local Christian population driven underground by religious persecution.
Neeson will play a priest who landed in Japan over a decade ago and has gone missing.
Variety reported last year that Garfield had signed to star in Scorsese’s long-gestating adaptation of Japanese novelist Shusaku Endo’s book, regarded as his masterpiece.
The film is produced by Irwin Winkler, Randall Emmett and George Furla and Emma Tillinger Koskoff.
Jay Cocks has written the adaptation of ‘Silence’, first published in 1966.
Paramount released Scorsese’s three most recent films — ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’, ‘Hugo’ and ‘Shutter Island’. It has not set a release date for ‘Silence’.
News about the Paramount talks was first reported by Deadline.com.

Andrew Garfield has admitted he refuses to use Twitter as he isn’t a fan of “self promotion”.
The Amazing Spider Man 2 star told the Observer that he steers clear of social media as he doesn’t feel comfortable telling the world about his life.
He explained: “There is something crass about self-promotion. I can’t do the Twitter thing either. Maybe there is something wrong with me.
“Maybe I need to be better at saying ‘Check me the f**k out, motherf**kers.’
“I should do that. ‘Yeah, so go see the f**king movie, because it’s the best f**king thing that you will ever see!’”
The fiercely private 30-year-old recently jokingly told a reporter to ‘f**k off’ after asking him about his relationship with girlfriend Emma Stone.
ACESHOWBIZ.COM – Rumor has it, Sony changes its initial plan to release “The Amazing Spider-Man 3″ on June 10, 2016. According to a scoop from Ain’t It Cool News, the third installment of Marc Webb’s Spidey film franchise starring Andrew Garfield has been delayed until 2017.
To fill the gap after “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ which arrived this summer, Sony may release either “The Sinister Six” or “Venom (2017)” first. Drew Goddard (“The Cabin in the Woods”) will write and direct the former, while Alex Kurtzman will helm and collaborate with Roberto Orci and Ed Solomon to pen the script for the latter.
Sony’s co-chairman Amy Pascal previously explained the reason behind the studio’s decision to give depth to side characters in Spidey’s world. “We are expanding the ‘Spider-Man’ universe into ‘The Sinister Six’ and ‘Venom’ so that we have ‘Spider-Man’ movies every year,” so she said.
Which villainous character will appear in the next Spidey movie hasn’t been announced, but Paul Giamatti who played The Rhino in the second film already confirmed he had signed a multi-picture deal. Meanwhile, Webb once said, “I like the idea of Kraven. The Vulture. Ock. I always thought the idea of Mysterio was interesting. Maybe Scorpion. But really, Kraven I think is kind of interesting.”
