Early last year I gave you some news that Hannibal is returning but not to the big screen. It was announced that NBC were going to do their own take of the iconic character made famous in a series of films by Anthony Hopkins and ordered a pilot to test the water to see if a TV show was at all possible! Well you can forget about that happening because the Studio are so impressed with the script that they have ordered a 13-part TV show that will follow the first novel of Red Dragon.
Bryan Fuller an executive producer on many shows from Heroes, Pushing Daisies, Dead Like Me, Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and it was his script that have wooed the studio.
Now the creators are pressing ahead to find a Hannibal for the Cannibal and the early front runner is Cillian Murphy but I guess that is just wishful thinking!….
More news when it happens!
