Showrunner Bryan Fuller heeft zich onlangs uitgelaten over de serie Hannibal, waarvan afgelopen weekend de laatste aflevering werd uitgezonden op NBC. Dit gebeurde in een interview met Variety. Het magazine vroeg hem of er kans is dat deze serie word voorgezet. Alhoewel de kansen relatief klein lijken, mede door het tekenen van acteur Hugh Dancy voor The Way, blijft Fuller hoop houden.

”Martha De Laurentiis is investigating financing for a feature film and there’s any of a number of scenarios. Shows have come back years after they’ve been cancelled, and I’m never saying never because … as creatively daunting as it would be to tell that fourth season of Will and Hannibal’s story, I’m very excited by that challenge” aldus Fuller.

Hannibal bevat elementen van Thomas Harris’s boeken Red DragonHannibal en een beetje van Hannibal Rising. Maar de rechten van Harris’s bekendste Hannibal Lecter boek, The Silence of the Lambs, zijn nog steeds niet beschikbaar voor de maker. Fuller sprak wel over de mogelijkheid van een adaptatie van Silence of the Lambs:

“I absolutely do hope and would love to tell Silence of the Lambs with this cast. I love that novel and I think there’s fantastic ways to reimagine it for thirty years later, and… yes. Period.”

Over hoe hij Calrice Starling zou gebruiken zei hij: “Well, there’s a couple of ways to go. There’s the Ellen Page way, which I think would be fantastic and more kind of in line with the Clarice that we all know. But I know I would also like to explore who Clarice would be from a different racial background. There’s something about being poor and white in the South but there’s something else about being poor and black in the South, and I think it could be the necessary gateway into the character, to make Clarice as much our own signature character as we tried to make Will Graham.”
