Jodie Foster Coming to NBC’s Hannibal?

August 27th, 2014 by Derek Robertson Comments

Jack Crawford may not be sending Clarice Starling back to talk culinary skills with Hannibal Lector. However there has been talk of Jodie Foster heading over to NBC’s Hannibal to direct some episodes at the hands of executive producer Bryan Fuller.

Fuller asked the Silence Of The Lambs star if she would be up for directing some episodes during the third season, which goes into production next week.

It has been confirmed that Jodie is seriously thinking about directing a few episodes. Foster made her name starring in the 1991 classic Silence Of The Lambs playing Clarice Starling, an FBI trainee hunting a serial killer who skins and butchers his victims. To understand the killer, she tries to attain the help of imprisoned psychopath Hannibal Lector.

Fuller tweeted a photo of the two of them together with the caption: “WHEN #HANNIBAL WORLDS COLLIDE.”

Season three of Hannibal will pick up one year after the brutal events of the season two finale, with episode four filling in the gap of what occured during that time. Fuller has mentioned that season three feels different from the previous seasons, saying it’s like a whole new show.

Hannibal was snubbed at the Emmys this year, but the series (and cast) have been recognised by the Saturn Awards and Critics’ Choice Television Awards.

Working in the music industry with Sony/BMG Records gave Derek insight and experience into video directing. Thusly, for many years he took a hands-on, multi-disciplinary approach in creating and editing treatments; working with performance artists, writing and producing music and working both; in front of, and behind the camera. Studying a Msc in Forensic Psychology has embedded a conceptual ethos that has spawned his signature writing style that he now infuses whilst blogging for numerous websites; writing music reviews, movie news, and reviewing network shows et al., . Derek continues to try and erase the boundaries between the homogenous and the insanely dull, culturally enmeshing contemporary socio-political aspects into the mix of the monolithic media industry.
