Scorsese Eyes Japanese Tale

Martin Scorsese RTE.ie reports that Martin Scorsese is eyeing the Japanese novel "Silence" for his next project. "Silence" is considered to be masterpiece of Shusaku Endo, a Catholic Japanese author who rose in literary prominence in the aftermath of World War II. It tells the story of heretic Portugese missionaries in Japan in the 17th century.

This comes on the heels of reports that Scorsese was looking to remake Akira Kurosawa's "Drunken Angel" with Leonardo DiCaprio. It also follows reports that Scorsese would be teaming up with DiCaprio again to make a biopic of Teddy Roosevelt. Conclusion: DiCaprio and Scorsese are making up rumors involving themselves and slipping them to vulnerable members of the press. I won't fall for it next time. --Terrence Ryan.
