Speaking to Crave, Schoonmaker said: "He wants to make more films like [Silence], that are spiritual, basically, but not set in 17th century Japan. In the modern time. So hopefully we'll be able to make that. Not the next one, the next one is The Irishman, which is De Niro and Joe Pesci and elderly gangsters. So that'll be very different from Silence.
