First Look: Liam Neeson in Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ 

Liam Neeson has revealed the first picture for his upcoming film ‘Silence,’ directed by Martin Scorsese. 

In a recent interview Neeson shed some light of the filming process. “[Scorsese] gives 200%. All he requires is that you give 100%. He’s intimidating,” Neeson explained at the Los Cabos Film Festival (via Variety), adding that he lost twenty pounds for his role. “He requires absolute silence on the set — if he hears one tiny sound, it shatters it for him.” 

Co-starring  Andrew Garfield,   Tadanobu Asano, and  Adam Driver, the film follows two 17th-century Jesuit priests who face violence and persecution when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor and spread the gospel of Christianity. 

The film hits cinemas in 2016.
