Bryan Fuller Would Like to Do a Silence of the Lambs Miniseries
If you are like me and a huge fan of TV series Hannibal, then this will come as welcome news, since it been a year since NBC’s Hannibal ended. Showrunner Bryan Fuller has plans to revive the series, using the most infamous story in the Hannibal Lecter arsenal. Fuller told Blumhouse’s “Shock Wave “ podcast this week that he’d like to revive Hannibal to a miniseries to do his version of Silence of the Lambs. “I think the film adaption is the perfect movie, but there are a lot of interesting nook and crannies to explore in a television series,” he says. ” I hope we get to tell the story.”
But don’t get to excited just yet my friends, this is just what Fuller would like to do, at this stage, no network has come to the party to bankroll a Hannibal revival yet, but surely someone will come to the party right? At the moment everyone involved is all tied up with other projects, Huge Dancy is playing a cult leader on Hulu’s The Path; Mads Mikkelsen is starring in Marvel, and Star Wars movies and Fuller had to ditch CBS’s new Star Trek series as he was flat out with Starz’s American Gods.Jody Foster as Clarice Starling
Fuller believes that a short-run miniseries would work out well for everyone: ideally, for the cast, it would be as a miniseries, here and there. Let’s do 6 to 8 episodes of that and do 6 to 8 episode over here. And do it as an irregular thing.” All we need now is to find the perfect Clarice Starling.. Who do you think would be the perfect Clarice if the miniseries get’s bankrolled? Personally, I think Evan Rachel Wood, would be a perfect fit for Clarice Starling.Evan Rachel Wood – My Pick for Clarice Starling
Let’s all hope that Fuller’s miniseries will come to fruition however in saying that I would have high expectations for miniseries, being a fan of all the Hannibal Lecter movies and the recent TV Series, they would have to knock it out of the park in a big way.
