Liam Neeson Joins Scorsese’s ‘Silence’

Liam Neeson is joining the Martin Scorsese film Silence opposite Andrew Garfield and Ken Watanabe.

The script is by Jay Cocks and Scorsese and the film which is being financed by Emmett/Furla/Oasis, Corsan and A1 is set to begin production in Taiwan later this year.

Silence tells the story of Father Rodrigues, a 17th century Portuguese Jesuit, who is heading to Japan with a fellow priest to discover whether his mentor has left the church, but there’s religious persecution in the country which forces them to travel undercover with an interpreter.

Neeson is also reportedly making a deal to reprise his role as retired CIA agent Bryan Mills in Taken 3, is in negotiations for drama Highwaymen and will be in Universal’s Non-Stop as Bill Marks in the action movie which is set for release later this month.
