Hannibal Lecter is set to return this year, albeit on the small screen, as Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale, The Hunt) steps into the shoes of Brian Cox and Anthony Hopkins as Thomas Harris' infamous serial killer in the 13-part TV series Hannibal, which has just received its first trailer from NBC ahead of its premiere this April.
Created by Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies) with a pilot episode from director David Slade (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse), Hannibal explores the relationship between the cannibalistic doctor and FBI criminal profiler Will Graham, played by Hugh Dancy (The Big C). Also set to feature in the cast of the series are Caroline Dhavernas (The Pacific), Lara Jean Chorostecki (Beauty and the Beast), Aaron Abrams (The L.A. Complex), Hettienne Park (Young Adult), Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix), Gina Torres (Flash Forward) and Gillian Anderson (The X-Files).
