‘The Silence of the Lambs’ is back… on TV
After more than ten years after the release of the film in 2001, NBC is to release Hannibal later this year, as a 13-episode series. The drama will be based on Thomas Harris’ novel The Silence of the Lambs, but will focus on Dr Lecter’s relationship with FBI profiler Will Graham, who will be played by Hugh Dancy. Lovely Clarice will not be a part of the adventure for this adapation.
However, Lifetime is in preparation of its own series produced by MGM. Clarice will focus on Clarice Starling’s character, possibly on her childhood after her father got killed and her debut at the FBI academy. Who will replace oscar winner Jodie Foster for this role? We don’t know yet. Hopefully more news on casting will follow soon.
So, «Have the lambs stopped screaming, Clarice?» I guess not…
Harrison Ford in the Blade Runner’s sequel
Rumors have been confirmed, Ridley Scott wants Harrison Ford to be a part of the Blade Runner sequel, but not as the lead. The director reported to the U.K.’s Independent: ‘I don’t think it’ll be Harry (starring),… But I’ve got to have him in it somewhere. That’d be amusing.’
New pictures from Tom Hooper’s film adaptation of Les Misérables, starring Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, Russel Crowe as Javert and Anne Hathaway as Fantine, Cosette’s mother, who is forced to work as a prostitute to provide for her daughter. The film is a musical adaptation of Victor Hugo’s masterpiece, very much in the spirit of the stage musical apparently.
We have heard Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway sing before when they were hosting the Academy Awards, Russel Crowe however has yet to prove his musical talents!
Let us also hope that the film will be of the same quality as the director’s previously acclaimed film The King’s Speech.
