Last month, it was reported that NBC has ordered 13 episodes (Everybody’s trying to copy 13 episode-habit that works for cable shows) of HANNIBAL
This one-hour drama is written by Bryan Fuller and it will center on Lecter’s early days and his mindgames with FBI agent Will Graham, which according to TVLine, will be played by Hugh Dancy. The following is the logline..
“One-hour contemporary thriller series featuring the classic characters from Thomas Harris’ novel Red Dragon – FBI agent Will Graham and his mentor Dr. Hannibal Lecter – who are re-introduced at the beginning of their budding relationship.”
So sorry, Clarice, but you’re not feature on this new show. This one’s focusing on Graham who captured Lecter.
The sequel movie, Hannibal in 2001 bored me to death, didn’t compare to The Silence Of The Lambs, but I did actually enjoy 2002′s Red Dragon that had Anthony Hopkins returning as Lecter, of course, and Edward Norton as Will Graham, despite the fact that the film was directed by Brett Ratner.
The million dollar questions remains.. who do you think should play the iconic Hannibal Lecter? And will he eat your liver with fava beans?
