Some of you may have seen recent previews for Scorsese’s new movie Shutter Island, but more exciting is the movie he is making after that, a movie that he has been trying to make, he claims, for 10 years: An adaptation of Shusaku Endo’s Silence. And what a cast! The film is expected to air in 2010, so be sure to pick up a copy and get to work reading.  Rumor also has it that a local Jesuit friend of mine has been sought out to help with Japanese cultural details.  If he divulges any early secrets, I will let you all in on them.  


One Response to Silence

  1. That book has been on my list for a while now. Must get to it. Thanks for the reminder!
