Thread: Hannibal

  1. Hannibal

    This will be on NBC, and Bryan Fuller is behind it.

    For the first time, viewers will spend quality time with Lecter while he’s at large and before the world knows his secrets, working side by side with a similarly brilliant man who is destined to catch him.

    “It’s before he was incarcerated, so he’s more of a peacock,” Fuller tells EW.com. “There is a cheery disposition to our Hannibal. He’s not being telegraphed as a villain. If the audience didn’t know who he was, they wouldn’t see him coming. What we have is Alfred Hitchcock’s principle of suspense — show the audience the bomb under the table and let them sweat when it’s going to go boom. So the audience knows who Hannibal is so we don’t have to overplay his villainy. We get to subvert his legacy and give the audience twists and turns.”

    So Hannibal almost plays like a crime procedural featuring two very smart investigators — but one of them is a serial killer. It’s also a highly unusual plan in broadcast series TV to start out a drama with one format, while planning from the very beginning to dramatically shake up the story once Hannibal is outed.

    “It really is a love story, for lack of a better description, between these two characters,” Fuller says. “As Hannibal has said [to Graham] in a couple of the movies, ‘You’re a lot more like me than you realize.’ We’ll get to the bottom of exactly what that means over the course of the first two seasons. But we’re taking our sweet precious time.”

    Hannibal will also be unusual because it’s planned as a 13-episode-per-season show. So though the drama won’t rush Hannibal’s story, it also won’t feel like its padded with throwaway episodes either.
    Hugh Dancy is playing Will Graham.



    Mads Mikkelsen was cast today as Lecter.



    Might be good. I have some confidence in Fuller. If it's first season Heroes/Pushing Daisies Fuller, yes.

    There are only murderers in this room! Michael! Open your eyes! This is the life we chose, the life we lead. And there is only one guarantee: none of us will see heaven.

  2. So this is intended as a prequel to Manhunter/Red Dragon?

    Could be interesting. Manhunter is a brilliant movie, still my favorite Michael Mann picture, much better than Silence of the Lambs. There's something voyeuristic and creepy about Silence of the Lambs that doesn't sit well with me.

    William Petersen will be hard to top as Will Graham, though.

  3. I hope it's as good as Hannibal Rising!

  4. You goddamn maniac.

    When it comes to movie series on dvd, I'm a hardcore completist. I even have two different versions of Manhunter. But I will be GODdamned if I'm going to spend money on that shitpiece.

    Truth here. Manhunter is one of my favorites as well. While Hopkins may be the superior Lecter(until the overacting chew-fest that was Red Dragon), Norton just played the role too wishy washy. No intensity at all.
