Martin Scorsese is finally set to take on Silence, a project that has been on his slate since 1991.

According to Deadline, Scorsese is looking to shoot the adaptation of Shusaku Endo’s novel in July of 2014.

That shoot date will depend on how quickly a cast comes together. Daniel Day-Lewis, Benicio Del Toro, and Gael Garcia Bernal had all been attached to star over the years.

The book tells of 17th century Jesuits who attempt to bring Christianity to Japan.

Cecchi Gori Pictures filed a lawsuit against Scorsese last August, claiming he failed to make this film for them within a reasonable time frame.

Perhaps this news will cheer them up.
