Adam Driver has joined the cast of SILENCE, a film anticipated to be Martin Scorsese’s next venture. The story centers on 17th century Jesuit priests who, in the course of spreading the gospel of Christianity in Japan, face violence and persecution when they try to locate their mentor. The script, penned by Scorsese, is an adaptation from Shusaku Endo’s novel of the same name.
Repped by Gersh, Driver has had the chance to work with some critically acclaimed directors. He can currently be seen in the Coen Brothers’ “Inside Llewyn Davis,” and played Samuel Beckwith in “Lincoln,” directed by Spielberg.
