Liam Neeson Joins Cast of Scorsese’s Historical Drama ‘Silence’


Liam Neeson has joined the cast of the upcoming Martin Scorsese film Silence, Deadline reports.  He will star opposite Andrew Garfield and Ken Watanabe.

Silence is Scorsese’s next project, a historical drama adapted from novel of the same name by Japanese author Shūsaku Endō.  It is unclear which role Neeson will be playing.

The story involves a 17th-century Portuguese Jesuit (Garfield) who travels to Japan with a fellow priest when they hear rumors that their former mentor has left the Church.  They face violence and persecution while trying to spread the gospel of Christianity.

Busy and hard-working as always, catch Liam Neeson this month in his next film Non-Stop on Feb. 28th, in Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West in May, as well as his voice work in the upcoming The Lego Movie on Feb. 7th.   He is also currently working on Taken 3, the third installment in his thriller franchise.

    Another irrelevant waste of time from
    the decades STALE Scorsese.

    Meanwhile, as the Globalist MAFIA usurpation
    of the world ramps —DeNiro’s looking like a
    dead ringer for Soviet dictator, Josef STALIN.

    IF Scorsese wants to take on something
    genuinely relevant —he should take on the
    definitive portrait of STALIN.
