Re-confirming what we reported back in February 2011, Martin Scorsese caught up with Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo on BBC 5 in December and once again posited that his Jesuit priest drama “Silence” will be his next film. “I’m hoping to do [Shusaku] Endo’s book next, ‘Silence,’” Scorsese began before correcting himself. “I’m not hoping, we’re literally pulling all of the elements together at this point.”

Despite James Cameron's best intentions, for the most part, the 3D format has primarly been utilized as a cash grab by studios looking to pad out the bottom line in an era when box office receipts appear to be on the decline. However, 2011 marked a bit of a change.

We just got off the e-horn with Martin Scorsese's publicist. While Vulture is partly correct that Scorsese is once again attached to "The Wolf of Wall Street" with Leonardo DiCaprio, the New York blog only has half the picture down. That drama about the rise and fall of Wall Street stockbroker Jordan Belfort is not next, nor is it shooting this summer.
