Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller has been asked a lot in the past week about the future of his hauntingly beautiful (but sadly low rated) NBC series, and while on the red carpet of the 41st Saturn Awards, we were able to find out a little more about that. But the biggest news may be regarding Fuller's other current project, American Gods. He said "we are cranking away" at the first two scripts, and that author "Neil Gaiman is going to be writing episodes of the show," so the new series "is going to have scope." Fuller also gives a ton of great information on the rest of Hannibal Season 3, saying that this next run of episodes features some of the "most bonkers" stuff the show has ever attempted. He also talks about how great it has been working with Richard Armitage, who will play Francis Dolarhyde, a.k.a. The Red Dragon. »

Thursday night Richard Armitage was at the 41st Saturn Awards in Burbank, California "just picking up Peter Jackson's trophy" for Jackson's The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies win, but says he wasn't expecting one for himself. Armitage won Best Supporting Actor in a Film, also for The Battle of Five Armies, but when we were able to speak with him from the red carpet, we also got some scoop on Hannibal's current season. Armitage shares quite a bit about his process of crafting and becoming the character Francis Dolarhyde, a.k.a. The Red Dragon, and said he thinks fans will be really pleased with his arc. Also, he teased a scene showrunner Bryan Fuller also mentioned recently, one that had the crew gasping and Armitage "frightened" to perform. Cannot. Wait. You can check out the full interview below. Hannibal airs Thursday nights at 10 p.m. on NBC. »

"Hannibal" showrunner Bryan Fuller has been making the media rounds this evening to discuss the show's potential future in the wake of NBC's decision to not order a fourth season. Fuller's had beloved shows canceled out from under him before ("Wonderfalls," "Pushing Daisies"), but in this case, he has a distributor in Gaumont International with a desire to keep the show going, both here and abroad, and that has in the past shown a willingness to make creative deals to keep "Hannibal" in fine cuisine. (Earlier this week, EW reported that Gaumont had slashed this season's license fee to a piddling $185,000 per episode, or roughly the wig budget for "Peter Pan Live!" That's why the remaining 10 episodes will air: NBC has no more cost-effective alternative.) Both The Hollywood Reporter and Variety had published their Fuller interviews by the time Fuller and I spoke, and since his time was limited (like Will Graham, »

Following yesterday's unfortunate news that the third season will be the last for Bryan Fuller's Hannibal series (at least on its current network), NBC has announced a Comic-Con panel for the critically acclaimed cannibal show.

The joint Sony Pictures and Marvel movie will feature The Impossible star as Peter Parker and his alter-ego Spider-Man in a new film slated to hit theatres in 2017. The young actor has beat out other competitors whoreportedly in line for the role, including Ender’s Game’s Asa Butterfield.
The 19-year-old Holland, who hails from the UK, will first appear in Captain America: The Civil War next May, and then head-up a solo movie, planned to be the first in a series of films. Holland is much younger than his two superhero predecessors: Tobey Maguire was 27 when he first appeared in Sam Raimi’s 2002 Spider-Man, andAndrew Garfield was playing high schooler Peter Parker at age 29 in 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man. Casting a younger actor in the role allows for Holland to believably continue to be »

NBC has canceled Hannibal, after just three Season 3 episodes have aired. Last week's episode dropped to a series low 0.5 rating in the all-important 18-49 demographic. Deadline reports that the show will close out its Season 3 run this summer in the Thursday 10 Pm time slot, but it will not be back for Season 4. Here's what NBC had to say in a statement.
"We have been tremendously proud of Hannibal over its three seasons. Bryan Fuller and his team of writers and producers, as well as our incredible actors, have brought a visual palette of storytelling that has been second to none in all of television - broadcast or cable. We thank Gaumont and everyone involved in the show for their tireless efforts that have made 'Hannibal' an incredible experience for audiences around the world."
Series creator and showrunner Bryan Fuller also released the following statement.

The first photos have been released from Brendan Muldowney's "Pilgrimage," the medieval Ireland set project starring Richard Armitage, Jon Bernthal and Tom Holland which just wrapped production in Belgium and Ireland.

Cast your mind back to March, when it was reported that Richard Armitage was part of the cast for medieval thriller Pilgrimage. As the film has just wrapped, there is pictorial evidence of the man himself, alongside co-stars Jon Bernthal and Tom Holland in new stills supplied via The Hollywood Reporter. The images – pilgrimages? We’ll get our coat – show the actors as 13th century monks who must escort their monastery’s holiest relic to Rome and find their faith severely tested en route when they discover that the item is not quite what they thought. And it attracts plenty of unwanted attention, which pressures them into joining forces with a knight (Armitage, who’s probably had his fill of armour for a while after the Hobbit trilogy and now this). Bernthal plays mute member of the holy order who joined the monastery to make penance for his violent past, »
After the shocking events of the Season 2 finale, that left the fans and characters reeling, the dark and haunting NBC series Hannibal is back for its third highly anticipated season. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) is on the run in Europe with his psychiatrist, Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson), and although he has a new identity, he is still the same very dangerous man. And as the lives of Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) and Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) lead them on the path toward Hannibal again, you will learn that each of them have their own motivations to catch him, once and for all. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, showrunner Bryan Fuller talked about making a grand departure away from the FBI and any of the constraints of the crime procedural storytelling, where the relationship between Will and Hannibal is, what domestic life looks »

With Hannibal Season 3 premiering tonight on NBC, we recently participated in an interview call with Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller, who teased what we can expect to see this season, including Bedelia and Hannibal's relationship and much more.
Bryan Fuller: Well, really it kind of boils down to this fabulousness of Gillian Anderson and more of her is always a good thing. And we had so much fun working together in the first two seasons and she’s such an iconic actress and brings such a specific energy to the show that it seems like a really logical next step for the series to flush out that relationship expanded and get more of the chemistry between Mads Mikkelsen and Gillian Anderson.
There is a genuine connection between Bedelia and Hannibal. »

NBC’s beautiful and brutal “Hannibal” returns for for its third season on June 4, in which we find our titular cannibal (played with charismatic menace by Mads Mikkelsen) cutting a bloody — if cultured — swath through the opulent palazzos of Italy with his former therapist, Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson). The pair are hiding in plain sight following Hannibal’s vicious and potentially deadly encounter with Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) and Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) in the season two finale, and Dr. Lecter certainly isn’t making any secret of his singular tastes now that he’s escaped the FBI’s clutches.
Variety talked to “Hannibal” executive producer and showrunner Bryan Fuller ahead of Thursday’s premiere, discussing everything from the show’s shift in tone to its loyal fanbase to the ongoing debate about sexual violence on television. Below, Fuller explains why “the third season is »

The visual language of "Hannibal" has grown increasingly more abstract and dreamlike as the series has gone on. As the show and its central characters get ever closer to the iconic serial killer, the less their realities seem to be governed by basic laws of either narrative logic or physics. When you are in with Hannibal Lecter, you are in a waking nightmare, where everything seems like it should exist only in the darkest corners of imagination, but is instead somehow horrifyingly real. It's a stylistic shift that's benefited the show, and also one that neatly captures the feeling of watching it and being aware that it airs on NBC (where the third season debuts tomorrow night at 10). Surely, the idea of a series this graphic and disgusting airing on a traditional broadcast network, with all the FCC regulations and Standards and Practices executives involved, must be a dream. Or maybe it's a prank, »

Last night I re-watched the final episodes of "Hannibal" season two, just to get reacquainted with the show, the characters and the mood of it all. NBC has made available to press the first three episodes of the upcoming third season, premiering June 4 (10-11 p.m. Et), and while I've already watched the season premiere (twice) I didn't want to go any further before writing a look back at the last season so as to approach it with virtually the same mindset as everyone else so as not to offer too many hints as to what's to come, but more a tease of what you can expect from the first episode of this third season. So, the question to begin with, I guess, is what do we knowc At the end of the second season we saw the bloody battle between Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen), Jack (Lawrence Fishburne), Alana (Caroline Dhavernas »

The long wait to find out who survived The Red Dinner (aka Hannibal’s spectacular season two finale, Mizumono) is almost over. Hannibal season three is nearly upon us, and to mark its arrival, we caught up with showrunner Bryan Fuller to find out what’s in store.
Firstly, we’re due to meet a different kind of Hannibal in a very different kind of setting. Fuller’s James Bond fandom has leached into the first seven-episode chapter of the season, which sees Mads Mikkelsen’s chicly dressed predator living undercover in the upper echelons of Italian society. The season’s second six-episode chapter introduces Richard Armitage as Francis Dolarhyde, a character familiar to Red Dragon fans.
We chatted to Fuller about the show’s revised take on Hannibal’s origin story, »

We would caution loyal Hannibal fans – the Fannibals among you – that this new taste of the Grand Guignol show’s third season gives a lot away about how the second season’s life-or-death cliffhanger is resolved. With that warning in mind, enjoy this latest look at the show’s next chapter, including a first proper glimpse at Richard Armitage as Francis “The Tooth Fairy” Dolarhyde...A blend of interviews with the likes of Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal himself), Hugh Dancy (Will Graham) and Gillian Anderson (Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier) and new footage, the promo explores how the show skips ahead in time a little and finds Hannibal living it up in Europe, posing as one of his recent victims, with Du Maurier pretending to be his wife. Naturally, things get violent and bloody, and soon Hannibal is facing his old friend and foe Will once more.The season will also introduce »
The upcoming third season of Hannibal opens up a whole new world.
A trailer and teaser for the new season offer a first look at Mads Mikkelsen’s and Gillian Anderson’s characters Hannibal and Bedelia after they’ve “ensconced themselves in contemporary Florentine society” as husband and wife.
The new videos depict a murder in progress that Hannibal seems to have committed to gauge Bedelia’s level of engagement. “Are you, in this very moment, observing or participating?” he asks menacingly as the helpless victim tries to crawl away.
“Bedelia, for the first time, is party to it,” Anderson says in the video, which also includes cast interviews with Hugh Dancy, Laurence J. Fishburne III and Caroline Dhavernas. “She could be as dark as Hannibal, but you don’t know.”
“She has a curiosity for the dark side of the world that she cannot run away from,” Mikkelsen adds in the video. »
