In the wake of the end of "Hannibal" on NBC, series creator Bryan Fuller has given several interviews discussing where the show might go next if they are able to continue it. One issue has always been that Fuller did not have the rights to use the most famous of the Lecter novels - "The Silence of the Lambs" and the character of Clarice Starling.
Were the show to continue, he still hopes they could do it one day. Speaking with Crave Online, Fuller says:
"I absolutely do hope and would love to tell Silence of the Lambs with this cast. I love that novel and I think there's fantastic ways to reimagine it for thirty years later, and… yes. Period."
As the show has often shifted around plot points from the books, how would a season of the 'Silence' storyline work on "Hannibal":

Following the report Bruce Willis was forced to leave the production of Woody Allen’s next pic, Allen has moved quickly to find his replacement as sources tell Variety that Steve Carell will replace Willis in the pic.
Carell joins Blake Lively, Parker Posey, Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeannie Berlin, Corey Stoll, Ken Stott, Anna Camp, Stephen Kunken, Sari Lennick and Paul Schneider in the cast, with Allen writing and directing.
The film is currently untitled and without distribution. As has been the case with several of Allen’s past films, Sony Classics is the front-runner to land the pic.
As always, plot details are under wraps, and the shoot is currently under way. Though an early report said Willis was forced to leave because of his commitment to “Misery” on Broadway, there remains some confusion surrounding his exit since the actor did appear on set before leaving the production. »

Coming on the heels of the Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality is a noticeable increase in the amount of Lgbt stories in mainstream entertainment. First “Fun Home” takes top honors at the Tony Awards, then film awards season frontrunners “Carol” and “Grandma” feature more strong and complicated lesbian characters. Joining Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, and Lily Tomlin in the awards race is Oscar nominee Ellen Page and last year’s leading actress Oscar winner Julianne Moore in what look to be two of the most powerful performances of the season. “Freeheld,” based on the real-life story of Ocean County cop Laurel Hester, is screenwriter Ron Nyswaner’s adaptation of the Oscar-winning, Cynthia Wade-directed 2007 documentary of the same name. Helmed by Peter Sollett, the film centers on Hester’s terminal cancer diagnosis and subsequent fight to have her pension benefits transferred to her domestic partner Stacie Andree. Page, »

As you fine ladies and gentlemen must all know by now (since I’ve pretty much hammered it into your heads), it’s one thing to read early Academy Award predictions in order to see what folks like myself think will happen this winter, but it’s a whole separate thing to actually know something about who and what will be in contention. To help out in that particular regard, I’m continuing my yearly ritual of running down some of the major contenders in each Oscar category in order to prep you all for the season to come. Basically, the format will have me saying a few words about what or who I feel are the top tier contenders right now in said categories, along with a longer list afterwards of many of the other hopefuls that the Academy might potentially take a shine to.

This year marks over 25 years since Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio made his acting debut. As a fresh faced, ambitious teen, DiCaprio appeared in several family soap operas in the early 1990s that had decent runs, including Parenthood and Growing Pains. A quarter of a century later and two Golden Globe wins for Best Actor (The Wolf of Wall Street in 2014 and The Aviator in 2005), DiCaprio has arguably become one of the most recognizable faces in the world, albeit sadly without that coveted Oscar win. Sealing his fate as a global heartthrob in age-old romantic drama Romeo + Juliet in 1996, then following it up next year with the blockbuster Titanic, Leo subsequently shot to stardom and worked with some of cinema’s finest directors, including Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan and Quentin Tarantino. Although a hard list to make given his impressive CV, here we take a look back some of his most remarkable roles. »

Rooney Mara surprised many by taking home the Best Actress prize at Cannes, as many thought her co-star Cate Blanchett would take it -- or the two would share. Whether we like it or not, the moment marked the beginning of Mara's campaign for a second Oscar nomination (and potential win) for Todd Haynes' "Carol." It's just a matter of whether The Weinstein Company will campaign them both in lead, or place Mara in supporting. The latter seems more like Harvey, and if that's the case we can pretty much guarantee that one of the category's five slots will go to Mara. Who joins her? That depends on how big, small or good dozens of hopefuls' roles are in films we -- in some cases -- won't see until November. The mighty likes of Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Kate Winslet, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Laura Linney, Jennifer Jason Leigh, »
