In a recent interview with Bloody Disgusting, Mads Mikkelsen revealed Bryan Fuller is still actively seeking a new home for Hannibal.
I think there’s always new hope. I haven’t heard anything specific. I know [show creator] Bryan [Fuller] is still working on some ideas where we can find a new home for this. I also have a strong feeling that everybody who was involved in it would gladly pick up the glove again if that happens. I don’t know where they looked. That is above my paycheck, but I know they’ve been talking to different studios.
Mikkelson also stated Fuller is hoping to secure the film rights to Silence of the Lambs.
I know that [Fuller] was working to get the rights to Silence of the Lambs so he could get in there and use some of those characters for his own universe. I have a hunch that might be where we’re going.
