Well we’ve been talking about the new Hannibal TV series coming for a while now… but at last, we have our Hannibal Lecter
Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen, fresh from his Best Actor win at Cannes, will play the cannibalistic Doctor in NBC’s upcoming series.
We are big fans of Mikkelsen and reckon this is an inspired bit of casting. The Series itself will take play pre-Red Dragon and will focus on Lecter and Will Graham (Hugh Darcy) as they solve the toughest serial killer cases together… all the while Lecter will be hiding his murderous nature.
The series will be produced by Bryan Fuller who brought us Pushing Daisies and the superb Dead Like Me.
No definite date on whn the 13 episode first season will begin filming.
