TV: Neil Marshall and Vincenzo Natali to direct episodes of ‘Hannibal Season 3’


Hannibal Season 3 returns on June 4th to NBC, and while details are still trickling through about the new season, showrunner Bryan Fuller has Tweeted some exciting updates on what we can all expect.

Firstly, Fuller says the first episode will jump between four timelines, but would not explain any further what that meant:

Next Fuller revealed the titles of the first three episodes, and since Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) and Bedelia (Gillian Anderson) have jetted off to Italy, the titles are fitting: “Antipasto”, “Primavera” and “Secondo”.

Finally, and most exciting of all, it was revealed that Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice, Haunter) would be directing the first three episodes, and that Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones, Dog Soldiers, The Descent) would be directing the eighth episode:


“HANNIBAL” — Season 3 kicks off Thursday, June 4, 10-11 p.m. (Episode 3.01 – “Antipasto”)

The dark and haunting series “Hannibal” returns for a third season, revealing the fates of characters hanging in the balance and their continuing psychological cat-and-mouse games.

After the shocking events of the season finale, Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) is on the run in Europe — accompanied by his psychiatrist Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) — sporting a new identity but servicing the same insatiable appetite. As the lives of Will (Hugh Dancy), Jack (Laurence Fishburne) and Alana (Caroline Dhavernas) converge toward Hannibal again, their deadly dance turns in startling and unexpected ways, and nothing will ever be the same again.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
