Last month came word that Bryan Fuller, Michael Green and Neil Gaiman are all set to executive produce a TV series adaptation of Gaiman's 2001 novel "American Gods" which will likely go into production sometime next year.
The story is set in a world where the old gods from biblical and mythological roots are losing believers to a new pantheon of gods which reflect the things modern society worships - technology, money, celebrity and drugs. The main protagonist is an ex-con named Shadow Moon who becomes bodyguard and traveling companion to Mr. Wednesday, a conman who is actually of the older gods.
Speaking with Crave Online this week, Fuller says the plan is to expand the scope of the story beyond just the point of view of the two leads:
"It's basically the following the events of the books, but expanding those events, and expanding the point of view to go »

Shock will never turn down an update on Hannibal when showrunner Bryan Fuller wants to grant one to us. Earlier this week, we spoke with him about the forthcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of Hannibal season two (hitting September 16th). The last time we spoke was at Comic-Con, so Shock had to inquired about the progress of season three which is shaping up to be exciting.
What has been revealed already is that the third season will focus on a manhunt to find Hannibal who has fled to Europe. Francis Dolarhyde (aka The Tooth Fairy) will make an appearance as will Lady Murasaki.

Starz has a new hit TV series on its hands, with the fantasy novel series adaptation Outlander; the network aims to replicate that success when it brings the world of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods from the page to small screen. Gaiman’s work of modern Americana fantasy is a best-seller that’s won multiple prestigious awards (including the Hugo and Nebula); it also has a sequel novel in development by the author and shares characters in common with Gaiman’s Anansi Boys novel and the novella “Monarch of the Glen” (which revolves around the protagonist of American Gods, Shadow).
That is to say, there’s a reasonable amount of source material – and critically-acclaimed source material at that – for American Gods ...

Speaking to our brother site CraveOnline, Fuller confirmed, “That is in development. Yeah, there’s a cookbook in development and there’s also a fantastic ‘Art of Making of Hannibal.’ [...] I saw some pages from it. It’s a gorgeous book.”
The post Yes, There Will Be a Hannibal Tie-In Cookbook appeared first on Shock Till You Drop. »

This week Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller ran into The Silence of the Lambs star Jodie Foster at an Emmys after-party, and Tweeted an image that ignited enthusiastic fan speculation that Fuller was courting her to direct some episodes of his hit series.
Foster has taken on less acting roles over the last few years, and has instead turned her attention toward directing. She’s directed films like The Beaver and Home for the Holidays, and recently helmed a few episodes of popular Netflix shows House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. The role of Clarice Starling in The Silence of the Lambs is perhaps her most iconic, and fans would love to see her involved in the newest iteration of the series.
According to Fuller, however, it’s not in the cards. Not only does Foster have a full slate of upcoming projects (including the film Money Monster »

At a recent Emmys party, Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller ran into The Silence of the Lambs star Jodie Foster. The result was the enthusiastic Twitter pic you see below. This encounter - a mix of two people hailing from two separate Hannibal screen adaptations - spurred rumors that Fuller was courting Foster for a directing gig on the upcoming third season of Hannibal.
I spoke to Fuller this afternoon and he provided some clarification and sobering truth.

Break out some fava beans and a nice Chianti! Jodie Foster just might end up coming to NBC's Hannibal to direct, if executive producer Bryan Fuller gets his way. At last night's HBO Emmy party, I just so happened to overhear the genius showrunner ask the original Hannibal movie star if she would be willing to come and direct the series during its third season, which is set to begin production next week. Jodie was noncommittal, but said she'd think it over, so...Fingers crossed, Fannibals! We'll probably never see Clarice Starling (Foster's big-screen role) on the NBC TV show, but having her behind the camera would be sort of epic in its own right, right? Fuller also tweeted a »
The fangs are out in The Originals‘ latest trailer for Season 2 (premiering Oct. 6), and surprising allies are coming together.
Klaus hasn’t come out of his home for months, but the former King of New Orleans is hatching a plan to take back his city, even as the moonlight rings zap his strength.

You’ll have to excuse poor Claire in this week’s Outlander. After all, a desperate person will grasp on to any hope – no matter how slim, improbable and/or inspired by a folk song – if it means achieving a desired outcome. And Claire is as desperate as they get.
So to you and I, pegging all of one’s aspirations on the information contained in some bard’s pretty chorus doesn’t sound like a plan for success, but we also haven’t been thrown back in time, accused of sorcery and forced to use a chamber pot. All I’m saying is, »
At the beginning of the month we got word that soundtracks (of two volumes each) are being released for "Hannibal" Seasons 1 and 2, but details on the latter were scant. Today that changes as we have the official Season 2 artwork and more!
From the Press Release:
The Hannibal Season Two Volumes 1 & 2 Original TV Soundtracks will be available digitally on September 2nd and on CD September 23, 2014. As with the two volumes of music from Season One, released digitally August 5th and arriving on CD September 2nd, each track on these two albums is a suite of music from an episode of the series.
“In this second season of Hannibal each episode is named after a Japanese food course,” said Reitzell. “It kind of gave me the opportunity to »

With the summer winding down, a new batch of TV shows are reaching their finales, giving us plenty to discuss on the podcast. First we take a look at the week in comedy, including the series finale of Wilfred. Next up is reality, with some Top Chef Duels talk as well as our regular Sytycd breakdown. After that, we talk genre, including a preview of BBC America’s upcoming Intruders, and then we break down a very full and very emotional week in drama, including intense episodes of Rectify and Masters of Sex, as well as the pilot for Legends. Afterward, instead of the DVD Shelf, it’s one more week of Comic Con coverage.

It was a decisive win for NBC’s Hannibal, earning the title of Best Drama Series in the 2014 EWwys—EW.com’s 7th annual awards for the Emmy-snubbed—with roughly 40 percent of the vote.
“We are in such a wonderful age where fans now have a face thanks to social media, and they have rallied around Hannibal with a Fannibal circle of protection, and love, and light,” creator Bryan Fuller told EW Radio while accepting the honor. “So grateful for them supporting the cannibal in every way that they do.”
As Fuller shared at Comic-Con, the season 3 premiere may feel »

Here at Dread Central we love "Hannibal." Honestly, I still think we don't deserve a show as good as it is! If you haven't watched it, please rectify that situation Immediately, if not sooner. With Season 2 about to come home, you have no excuse. Speaking of which...

It still boggles the mind that this is actually a picture of Luke Skywalker posing on the set of a Star Wars sequel that's actually coming to theaters next year. Next year! According to reports, Harrison Ford's leg is just about healed and production on Star Wars: Episode VII is starting up again following a brief hiatus, just in time for folks behind the scenes to have a little fun teasing fans with what's to come. Here, producer Bryan Fuller gives us a good look [via Twitter] at Mark Hamill on the set of Episode VII, due to obliterate theaters on December 18, 2015. While he's not in costume, this is the first image of Luke Skywalker on set and, well, that's enough to get us jonesing for more. You'll notice he's rockin' a long beard in the...

When last we saw Mark Hamill showing off his Star Wars: Episode VII Jedi beard, it was a little unruly. It has since been manicured and trimmed, with the latest set photo offering our best look yet at the once and future Luke Skywalker. This new image also features a VII logo. The photo comes courtesy of Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller, who took the picture himself, with Mark Hamill standing outside of Pinewood Studios. Take a look:

Star Wars: Episode VII is the planned seventh live-action theatrical installment in the Star Wars film franchise. Directed by J.J. Abrams, the film will not be an adaptation of any previous Expanded Universe stories, but will instead have an original story. Some reports claim that the main plot will revolve around the search for a missing Luke Skywalker. »

Abrams in the director's chair, Star Wars Episode VII is of course shrouded in secrecy, but we do know that filming resumes later this month. There's still well over a year until the movie is released, so when we'll get our first official look at a still, trailer or even title remains to be seen! What do you guys think?

This is the first photo we've seen of Mark Hamill on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. Well, maybe it's more like he's standing outside of one of the sound stages that the set is in. The crew for the film is currently gearing up to start production again, which is exciting. It was delayed after Harrison Ford got hurt. Ford had the time he needed to heal, and he's ready to come back and finish what he started! The photo comes from Bryan Fuller. The anticipation for this movie is killing me. »

The two week hiatus that Lucasfilm announced awhile back is almost done, so it's almost time for Star Wars: Episode VII to resume production with Harrison Ford back up and hobbling around like a pirate. Following the potential tease of Luke Skywalker's robotic hand last week, seen holding J.J. Abrams' handwritten note thanking fans for their support of the Star Wars: Force for Change charity drive, this time it's the Jedi himself teasing production in London. Mark Hamill took some time to pose for a photo that doesn't really offer any hints as to what's in store for Skywalker in the sequel, but it gets us excited. Look! Here's Mark Hamill in a Twitter photo from Bryan Fuller, outside of Pinewood Studios in London: .@HamillHimself Gives Great Jedi - A New Hope Indeed! #Starwarsvii pic.twitter.com/w5hEajCctz— Bryan Fuller (@BryanFuller) August 13, 2014 His facial hair is giving »

The TV show Hannibal, now entering season 3, is disturbing and fascinating and disgusting and beautiful and horrifying (depending on the scene), which is probably why I can’t stop watching it! And it’s certainly full of surprises as well. Based on the Thomas Harris novels, Bryan Fuller has called his team’s take on the character and stories a “mash-up,” which I like because it means they can revisit old material but still give it new twists.
At San Diego Comic-Con this year, I got to learn about some of the upcoming twists and turns at the aptly named “Hannibal Pannibal,” and at the cast and crew interviews afterwards. And now, I get to share all of that with you!

Daily Dead recently had the opportunity to meet with some of the cast and crew of NBC’s Hannibal during Comic-Con. With the showdown at the end of Season 2 leaving viewers anxious for more episodes, Hannibal’s producers shed some light on their plans for Season 3, including the return of a familiar face that we had previously assumed to be dead.
Warning: These interviews contain major spoilers if you have not already seen the Season 2 Finale.
Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy were unfortunately unable to attend Comic-Con this year. Nonetheless, many individuals involved with the show made an appearance, including director David Slade, executive producer Martha DeLaurentiis, writer Steve Lightfoot, show creator and writer Bryan Fuller, Caroline Dhavernas (Dr. Alana Bloom), Aaron Abrams (Brian Zeller), Scott Thompson (Jimmy Price), and surprise panel guest Raúl Esparza (Dr. Chilton).
On directing the Season 2 finale:
