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.
