‘Hannibal’ Season 4: Bryan Fuller Says Talks Will Begin In 2017

24 June 2016 6:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Currently in the middle of launching two highly anticipated genre television shows — Starz’s “American Gods” adaptation and CBS’ ‘Star Trek’ reboot — showrunner Bryan Fuller isn’t forgetting about his last critical darling, “Hannibal.” The NBC adaptation of the Thomas Harris novels ran for three seasons and 39 episodes, drawing a passionate cult audience and some of the best reviews on television. Ask critics to name some of the best shows of the past decade, and you’ll certainly find “Hannibal” listed among them.

Bryan Fuller updates us on the new ‘Star Trek’ TV series

24 June 2016 6:18 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Having successfully revamped the Thomas HarrisHannibal Lecter stories for television (only to have the show cancelled after season three) Bryan Fuller has turned his attention towards potentially the greatest TV franchise of all time in Star Trek. A new series will be beaming onto our TV sets in 2017, and Fuller has given a full update to the folks over at Collider.

Here’s Fuller’s reaction to being give the keys to the ‘Lamborghini.’

“It’s interesting you say “Lamborghini” because we’re looking at a lot of race cars as inspiration for our starships.” he said. “It’s wonderful. It’s surreal. I didn’t want to be a writer. I wanted to be a Star Trek writer, so to be able to craft a new iteration of the show with new characters and a whole new adventure and whole new way of telling stories that you haven »

On this day in pop culture history: Both ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Gremlins’ premiered

8 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It was 32 years ago today that not one but two classic horror comedies opened in theaters. Yes, Ghostbusters was released on the same day as Gremlins. It’s hard to believe that these two movies opened against each other, but 1984 was a different time, when opening weekend numbers weren’t given the same weight as they are now and films stayed in theaters much longer. Ghostbusters that dominated the U.S. box office that opening weekend but not by much — it earned $13.6 million then, while Gremlins grossed $12.5 million. The Bill Murray movie became the clear winner of the box office over the summer, though, holding the No. 1 spot for seven consecutive weeks. Ghostbusters, of course, has a very buzzy and headline-grabbing (for better or worse or mass hysteria) follow-up film on the way this summer, a reboot of the original. There’s reportedly a new Gremlins on the way too: »

"Hannibal" Returning In A Few Years?

1 May 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Cancelled after three seasons last year, sadly no streaming service or other network decided to pick up NBC's "Hannibal" despite all the critical acclaim for that TV series adaptation of Thomas Harris' Lecter novels.

The various actors and showrunner Bryan Fuller have all moved on to other projects now, but the series remains dear to their hearts and all have basically said they'd love to pick it up again if someone is game enough to help them. Last month Hugh Dancy suggested a return, if it is on the cards, would be about three or four years off.

Now Mads Mikkelsen, who plays the eponymous cannibalistic psychiatrist, has spoken with The Express and seemingly remains confident the show will find a new life in the next few years - the decision now resting on Fuller:

"It all depends on Bryan. He is the key, the base, the heart. We »

Daredevil season 2: examining Jon Bernthal's Punisher

With the help of the hugely talented Jon Bernthal, Marvel has finally done tragic and brutal on-screen justice to The Punisher. Spoilers...

This article contains major spoilers for the whole of Daredevil seasons one and two.

It's only been a week since Netflix released season two of Marvel's Daredevil, but lots of fans and viewers would already declare Jon Bernthal's take on Frank Castle to be the best screen version of the Punisher to date. He's not even the principal antagonist, but he steals scenes left and right all the way through the season.

Following the acclaimed portrayal of Wilson Fisk last season, new showrunners Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez provide a more humanised spin on the character than is traditionally depicted in the comics, without having him get pally with his neighbours, like the 2004 film did, or having him indiscriminately blow up free runners with a bazooka, »

Don Winslow plus Michael Mann equals a whole lot of hell, yeah

22 March 2016 2:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Things are changing right now, and the people who are going to thrive are the ones who are wiling to embrace that change instead of railing against it. If you’re a storyteller, you’re going to go where you have the most freedom to tell stories. When I look at a deal like the one Netflix made for Bright, the film that David Ayer will direct from a script by Max Landis, I see a shift that is going to change where we see certain types of things. My whole life, my focus has been on movies and the theatrical experience, and that may be changing, and not because of any decision I’ve made. The industry has simply evolved in a certain direction, and if I want to watch certain kinds of storytelling, that is more often than not going to be at home now instead of the theater. »

The Best Picture Oscar winners that had sequels

More Best Picture Oscar winners have had sequels than you may think. This lot, in fact...

There’s still an element of snobbery where sequels to certain films is concerned. Whereas it’s now almost compulsory to greenlight a blockbuster with a view of a franchise in mind, it’s hard to think of most Best Picture Oscar winners being made with a follow-up in mind. Yet in perhaps a surprising number of cases, a sequel – or in the case of Rocky, lots of sequels – have followed.

These cases, in fact…

All Quiet On The Western Front (1930)

Followed by: The Road Back

Don’t be fooled into thinking sequels for prestigious movies are a relatively new phenomenon. Lewis Milestone’s 1930 war epic All Quiet On The Western Front, and its brutal account of World War I, is still regarded as something of a classic. A solid box office success, »

'Silence of the Lambs'' original ending was even darker

17 February 2016 6:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As part of Deadline's coverage of The Silence of the Lambs' 25th anniversary, the site has published an extended interview with director Jonathan Demme, screenwriter Ted Tally and Robert Bookman, the agent who brokered the deal that brought Thomas Harris's bestselling novel to the big screen. In a previous piece, screenwriter Ted Tally revealed/reminded us that Gene Hackman had originally intended to write, direct and potentially play the role of Hannibal Lecter; this time around, the tidbit that caught my attention was the fact that the film's ending -- which in the finished film sees Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) stalking Frederick Chilton (Anthony Heald) through an island in the Bahamas -- was considerably darker in the original script. From the Deadline story: "The Silence of the Lambs ends when Hannibal Lecter, from a payphone in the tropics, congratulates FBI Academy graduate Clarice Starling and gently warns her not to hunt him, »

Why The Silence Of The Lambs Author Refused To Watch The Movie

17 February 2016 5:28 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Silence Of The Lambs is one of the most chilling thrillers of the last 25 years. Unfortunately, one person who has been unable to revel in the cinematic splendour of Jonathan Demme.s 1991 classic is the author of its source material, Thomas Harris. While it's kind of a shame that Harris never got to enjoy the film himself, his reason was pretty solid: he wanted to keep writing his books the way he envisioned them. Jonathan Demme explained to Deadline that just before he started shooting The Silence Of The Lambs, he gave Thomas Harris a courtesy call to insist that he was going to do his novel justice. And while Harris insisted that he was the perfect choice to direct, and the casting was sublime, the author admitted his one crucial decision when it came to the film's production. The inspiration for Harris' decision, according to Demme himself, was »

Who Silence Of The Lambs Almost Cast As Hannibal Lecter

17 February 2016 1:25 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It.s impossible to picture anyone other than Sir Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter in The Silence Of The Lambs. Just try. You can.t. But, that was almost the case. Because Gene Hackman was originally so interested in playing Hannibal Lecter, that he not only bought the rights to Thomas Harris. novel, but he wanted to direct the film, as well. Gene Hackman was one of the only individuals in Hollywood interested in buying The Silence Of The Lambs because Manhunter, the Michael Mann adaptation of Harris. original book, Red Dragon, which had Brian Cox in the lead role, had been a financial flop. However, after instigating its development, and while screenwriter Ted Tally was working on the first draft of his script for The Silence Of The Lambs, Gene Hackman randomly dropped out of production for one of the most doting reasons you.re ever likely to hear: »

You never know what's going to happen with an audition," actor Ted Levine remembers of the first time he portrayed Jame Gumb, The Silence of the Lambs villain also known as "Buffalo Bill." "I just pulled something out. It was scary. It felt kind of magical."

"I read with the three final guys who were going to be Buffalo Bill," says Brooke Smith, who played Catherine Martin, the U.S. senator's daughter whom Gumb abducts in the movie. "When Ted walked in, it was so crazily obvious. I asked him, »

The surprising actor who almost played Hannibal Lecter in 'Silence of the Lambs'

12 February 2016 11:46 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Rolling Stone just published an interview with Oscar-winning Silence of the Lambs screenwriter Ted Tally for the film's 25th anniversary, and hey, did you know that Gene Hackman originally wanted to play Hannibal Lecter? And also write and direct the movie? Because I didn't. What a strange alternate reality to consider. As Tally tells it, Orion was in the process of buying the rights to Thomas Harris's novel as a vehicle for Hackman when Tally made his interest in the project known to Orion co-founder Mike Medavoy. From Rolling Stone:  "[Medavoy] said, 'Gene thinks he's going to write this, but don't worry, he'll find out how hard that is, and we'll get back to you.' Mike later called my agent and said, 'Gene's written 50 pages of the script, and he's only 50 pages into the book. So if you can meet with him and convince him that you're the right guy for it, »
