Martin Scorsese’s upcoming Silence has been the legendary director’s passion project for some two decades and countless films in-between.

However, the director has already found his replacement in Japanese actor Tadanobu Asano who wowed international audiences with his performance in Mongol and might be known to the U.S. from his role in Thor. Phew! Now, Marty, can you please just film the thing already? We are dying to see it!
