If the actors are doing their jobs, very few members of the audience will know where they came from, or care. Most people don't follow entertainment industry news.

Re: Bryan Fuller making Hannibal Lecter series!

^ Oh, I know. But I remember talk that, for example, WB were very worried that Batman Begins had so many British and Irish actors in its cast - Bale, Caine, Neeson, Murphy, Tom Wilkinson, Linus Roache etc. Word was that they insisted on Katie Holmes as they wanted an all-American girl as the leading lady.

I still don't see how NBC is going to be able to make a cannibal serial killer show under the FCC's thumb that isn't fatally constrained in what the audience expects from the premise.
Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon were mostly about psychological games and profiling. There's very little onscreen violence. Hell, in Silence of the Lambs, Anthony Hopkins is on screen for less than 17 minutes. CSI etc. have already set some pretty high limits on what you can get away with on TV.

NBC have landed director David Slade, of Hard Candy, 30 Days of Night fame to direct the pilot episode. This is shaping up quite nicely, it must be said.

30 Days of Night was a pretty decent vampire/horror movie outing, but it pales in comparison to the level of awesome that was Hard Candy.

Sounds interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing who they cast as the main man.

Re: Bryan Fuller making Hannibal Lecter series!

It's interesting how much this show sounds like Dexter when you bring it down to it's most simple plot points: A serial killer helps police solve murders while we wait for those same cops to eventually learn his dark secrets.

Re: Bryan Fuller making Hannibal Lecter series!

That's the problem, I'm not going to be able to help but compare it with Dexter, and Michael J. Hall is a fiendishly tough act to follow. Also, FOX and the CW both have serial killer shows in the works (likely to get picked up) and I don't think we need serial killers on every network except ABC.

I find this a lot more interesting:

“Bryan and I are big fans of Trek and have discussed a take on what we would do, and we would love to do it,” Fuller says. “I don’t think anything is going to happen in any official capacity until after the next movie comes out. And I’m sure it would be wisely under J.J. Abrams’ purview of what happens. He’s the guardian of Trek right now.”
Is that a promise?

Re: Bryan Fuller making Hannibal Lecter series!

Here's a curious turn-up for the books. While NBC preps this show, Lifetime is said to be developing a series based around the young Clarice Starling and her adventures fresh out of the academy.

Of course, it may well go nowhere but if both shows do air, it will be interesting to compare them.

Re: Bryan Fuller making Hannibal Lecter series!

You are so fast! I only just saw that.

Dude looks creepy, so there's that. But I dunno about all these serial killer shows. I don't get the sense that there's a lot of appetite for an ongoing serial killer TV show among the broadcast audience. A movie, sure, but that's just two hours. How do you maintain this topic before it gets, well, boring?

My hunch is that Hannibal and The Following are going to premiere strong and then fall off fast. The one that might hit is Cult - which may or may not even be a serial killer show, but certainly has that feel. Mainly I think that one is well suited to the CW's audience, while having the potential to expand it like the CW wants, into a male direction.

I think this may be another example of Hollywood deciding that X is the big trend, while guess what, the trend is really Y (Hatfields & McCoys, anyone?) Being able to turn around on a dime about as well as an aircraft carrier in a sea of mollasses, they'll fall all over themselves making Westerns, by which time, the trend is Z. Hee hee.
