Liam Neeson To Return to Not Shooting People for Scorsese's Next Thing
Liam Neeson will reportedly take a brief respite from murdering dudes to star in Martin Scorsese's Silence. Based on the Shusaku Endo novel in which no one runs around snarling with a pistol, the thriller is a 17th-century tale of Jesuit priests who go undercover to Japan to spread Christianity and find out what happened to their mentor. Neeons's Batman Begins co-star Ken Watanabe and The Amazing Spider-Man's Andrew Garfield have already been cast in the film. In related news, oh good, Scorsese must have finally caught up on his superhero reboots.
