Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese said Monday his decision to shoot the historic-drama "Silence" was inspired by his religious childhood, despite the Hollywood heavyweight not typically being known for spiritual outpourings.The film is based on a novel by Shusaku Endo and tells the story of Portuguese Jesuits in the 17th Century who suffered persecution while working in isolated parts of Japan.Filming was temporarily interrupted after a ceiling collapsed on the Taiwanese construction workers who were reinforcing an old house made of brick and wood at the Chinese Culture and Movie Center Central Pictures during pre-production.Scorsese is the latest Hollywood director to film in Taiwan in recent years.
