Assuming they ever get the rights to use Silence of the Lambs.
From what I've heard, they just don't have the rights to use Clarice Starling. Fuller has every intention of adapting Silence of the Lambs - if he can't get the rights to use Starling, he'll just create a character very similar.

I heard it was all the characters that were created in The Silence of the Lambs, and that's why Cynthia Nixon's character Kade Purnell was an anagram of "Paul Krendler," the character that Ray Liotta would go on to play in Hannibal.

So instead of Buffalo Bill, the bad guy will be Detroit Lion.

Here's the quote:

"The character’s name was Paul Krendler, and we wanted to call her Paula Krendler, and they said no, because the way the rights go, it’s not by the literature, it’s actually by the character’s introduction. So if a character is first seen in Silence of the Lambs, we’re screwed, as far as rights go."

Unrelatedly, I only just noticed that Carlo is played by the same guy who was Spunkmeyer in Aliens! He's also been in stuff like Orphan Black and the remake of Robocop but I never recognized him. It has been 28 years after all.

Re: Hannibal (TV series)

Just saw the finale...

Wow, I can honestly say that this episode was unlike anything I've ever seen on network TV. From the opening split screen business (brilliant!) to the post-credits scene (what a reveal!), I was mesmerized.

I still can't wrap my head around both of the surprise cameos but I'm relieved that we get another season for some answers.

Awesome finale. Bryan Fuller TV Guide interview about season 2 and what's ahead for season 3.

My read on the section of the article I quoted below is that...


Awesome finale, and surprisingly full of twists despite telegraphing the ending at the beginning of the season.

Though it was a little too dependent on the FBI (typically) and Jack and Will and Alana being completely incompetent. It's not like the FBI didn't know where Jack and Will were planning to go and couldn't cordon off the area, or couldn't have just placed them in custody when they were both at FBI HQ earlier in the day.

And it's not like Will doesn't know that Hannibal doesn't have the super-sniffer that could detect the small of Freddie Lounds on him (though the argument could be made that that's part of their depicting him as being ambiguous about whether he'll take Hannibal's side or Jack's, and maybe he was tipping Hannibal off).

And while Alana is inexperienced with firearms, I find it hard to believe she would go into a known shooting situation without checking to make sure her gun was loaded first.

We knew Jack would face Hannibal alone from the preview of the fight at the start of the season, but I doubt that he would try and face Hannibal without Will being present, even with their timetable being moved up by the FBI forcing their hand.

Re: Hannibal (TV series)

One of my favorite recent shows, yet the season finale was pretty lame. Very pretty, but seriously lame. Everyone was completely incompetent, which undermines Hannibal's genius. They might as well have all put their guns in their mouths and pulled the triggers (which would still have somehow killed Alana) to save Hannibal some time.

I especially liked how the FBI knows Hannibal is a killer, and knows Jack and Will are going to either try and kill or capture him, on top of issuing warrants for their arrest, and having Alana straight up tell them Jack and Will can't be dissuaded ... and they do absolutely nothing about it beyond sending some SUVs to spook Will at his house. Really? Not even one active agent swings by to put eyes on Hannibal? No one has been tasked with tailing Jack or Will - who were just at FBI headquarters? Really?

And then Alana calls the police about shots fired in an affluent white neighborhood and 20 minutes later, we don't even hear sirens in the distance. Yeah, OK, that would happen.

There was no need to make everyone but Hannibal a complete moron here. He's been shown to be quite capable of eliminating threats, especially when it's revealed he's been fucking with everyone the whole time and always had an escape plan in place (Du Maurier) for either himself or the Will/Hannibal bromance duo.

The fact Will is the one who gets everyone turned into cold cuts was hilariously stupid, as well. "You were supposed to leave!" D'oh!

Re: Hannibal (TV series)

Great episode but I didn't like how it all came together at the end. Instead of getting some evidence on Hannibal Will just convinces Jack that Hannibal is the killer. So Jack goes to Hannibal's house and both he and Hannibal know they are going to try kill each other. Jack pulled the gun on Hannibal. You could just as easily say what Hannibal did was self defense. The other parts less so but Jack went there to do what? Arrest him? Force Hannibal to try kill him by pointing a gun at him? Seriously what the f**k can Jack do that wouldn't get him arrested and Hannibal off the hook?

I do like this series a lot but sometimes it kinda jumps to the goods with no good reason to and the build up is wasted. It's needs more connectivity rather than characters basing actions on their gut feelings.

I'm pretty sure that Jack was going to kill Hannibal. If he had arrested Hannibal the FBI would've had to release him. Whatsherface already told Jack what he and Will were doing is illegal and was going to arrest them both so Jack really had no choice but to kill Hannibal if he wanted to stop him.
