[25.02.2005] Moviehole meldet...
Actress Gong Li has been cast in the "Red Dragon" prequel "The Lecter Variation", which takes a snapshot of flesh-wearing Hannibal the Canniabl in his younger years.
Li, soon to be seen in "Memoirs of a Geisha", was handpicked by Director Peter Webber to star in the film.
The roles of Hannibal - at various ages - and his sister Mischa Lecter are currently being cast.
It's believed Anthony Hopkins is in talks to either narrate or make an appearance - as the older 'Hannibal' - in the flick.
"Variation", which will centre on Lecter's childhood in Lithuania through a period in Paris to his arrival in the US, will be produced by Dino De Laurentiis, and starts filming in May.


[04.11.2004] CS! meldet...
Producers Dino and Martha De Laurentiis have set Peter Webber (Girl With a Pearl Earring) to direct Behind the Mask, the Hannibal Lecter prequel being scripted by author Thomas Harris.
The novel will hit stores next Fall. The film will begin production in May for release in Summer 2006, reports Variety. Universal and MGM, partners on Hannibal and Red Dragon, will get first crack at domestic rights.
The producers are preparing to sell overseas rights this week at the American Film Market. They will sell that title along with the David Leland-directed The Decameron and The Last Legion. "Legion" will star Anthony Hopkins, who set the standard for Hannibal Lecter.
The De Laurentiises are still developing but will not be pushing at AFM their Alexander the Great biopic Alx, which David Hare and Baz Luhrmann scripted. They are still determined to make the film, but are content to wait for the dust to clear on the Oliver Stone-directed Alexander, which is released this month.
"It is a revenge story that shows why he became a cannibal," said Dino De Laurentiis. "But he kills people that audiences want to see killed. So while there is a natural revulsion, the sympathy toward Hannibal remains."
The producers and director will soon begin scouting locations in Lithuania, the Czech Republic and France. They will simultaneously search for young actors to play Lecter at three pivotal moments in his life.


[29.10.2004] CS! meldet...
Film rights for a new Hannibal Lecter novel, "Behind the Mask," , have been acquired by the Dino DeLaurentiis Company, which produced the Hannibal movies, Red Dragon and Hannibal. The book is scheduled for release next Fall.
"Thomas Harris is the premier novelist of psychological suspense of our time," said Irwyn Applebaum, president and publisher of the Bantam Dell Publishing Group.
"Millions of readers in 25 languages have wondered how Dr. Lecter developed his particular appetite for evil. This novel will satisfy their curiosity." [...]

"In the same article about Anthony Hopkins no longer being Jor-El in SUPERMAN, Hot Dog Magazine says he's also not involved in the Hannibal Lecter prequel either. Instead they're looking at Macauley Culkin! Apparently he's impressed producers with a role in a movie called Party Monster."

Hannibal's honey would like to go back for a second helping. "Oh, I would love to be FBI Agent Clarice Starling again," Julianne Moore insists. These days the cannibal himself, Anthony Hopkins, says he's working a script in which Clarice finally catches the meat eater--once and for all. Tell Moore and she's game. "I love Anthony Hopkins. I'd work with him in a second!"

[15.10.2002] Dark Horizons berichtet über "Hannibal 4"...
The Star has more details on the supposed fourth Lecter adventure, turns out its not what you may think. It seems that 64-year actor Anthony Hopkins wrote a script which would finish up the character once and for all by having Clarice Starling shoot him to death in the final scenes: "I did write a screenplay of my own, just as an exercise, that would follow Hannibal, I showed it to Dino and to my agent and the studio. It's about Hannibal actually out there, after Hannibal. The final denouement. Clarice is having a nervous breakdown and living in San Francisco. Then the nightmares start. She sees him on street corners, and he vanishes in the crowd. Then one night she wakes up in her bedroom and she's handcuffed to her bed, and he's in the corner smoking a cigar, and he says, 'Hello, Clarice...".

Universal's Red Dragon, the prequel to The Silence of the Lambs, set a new October opening weekend box office record earning an estimated $37.5M. The $78M Brett Ratner-directed thriller debuted in 3,357 theaters and averaged an impressive $11,165 per site. Although it opened well below the $58M earned by last year's Hannibal, the feature surpassed Meet the Parents, which two years ago this same weekend opened to $28.6M from 2,614 theaters. "Dragon" also marks the best fall opening by an R-rated movie, surpassing the $36.4M launch of Interview with the Vampire in 1994.[...]

[26.09.2002] Ananova meldet, dass die Leser von "Total Film" den "Scariest Movie Serial Killer" gewählt haben: Hannibal Lecter !!!

[24.09.2002] Bei Moviehole gibt es ein Interview mit Anthony Hopkins, der über seine Rolle in "Red Dragon" spricht...
[...] "I wanted to play it with more menace, more danger and much more rage, because after all, he has put me in here for life and I’m really not very happy about it. I also wanted to reveal to the Will Graham character and to the audience that behind the mask of this charming man is this lethal killer who’s dangerous. You don’t mess around. You don’t go out to dinner and have a friendly chat with him. I just wanted to show that vicious, really horrifying side of him." [...]

[21.09.2002] DH hat eine kleine Anekdote...
The Mirror reports that star Ralph Fiennes had no problem going nude for a scene in the Hannibal Lecter prequel, in fact according to Director Brett Ratner "We had to digitally remove part of his willy because it was so long, in the end we had to remove three or four inches". Fiennes says "It's ridiculous when men get out of bed wearing underwear or pants after sleeping with a girl - it's just not realistic. Nudity's no big deal to me". In any case the make-up artists caught an eyeful, the full length back tattoo that Fiennes' sports in the film took an astonishing eight hours to apply.

[20.09.2002] Bei AICN gibt es weitere Kritiken zu "Red Dragon"...
[...] Manhunter is a classic film. Red Dragon is an above average thriller. It's the worst of the Hannibal Lector films, but is still worth a viewing. Manhunter is the plucky, low-budget intelligent version, Red Dragon the blandly-directed, high budgeted, power casted money machine. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. [...]

[16.09.2002] Bei AICN gibt es eine eher negative Kritik zu "Red Dragon"...
[...] It’s a highly problematic film, albeit an occasionally entertaining one. This is clearly the most commercial-minded and obvious movie about Hannibal Lecter yet; Jonathan Demme’s psychological subtlety and Ridley Scott’s visual virtuosity (and Michael Mann’s command of both) are completely lost in the hands of director Brett Ratner. Ratner’s storytelling abilities are clunky and his visual imagination is practically nonexistent. [...]

[02.08.2002] Bei AICN gibt es eine positive Kritik zur ersten "Red Dragon"-Testvorführung...
[...] This may be the third in the series, but somehow, even with a different director, it hits it. It? Yea, it. The it we felt in the first film, the it we first saw behind the glass, the it on the face of those who talked to him and the it that made us all jump and feel disgusted. Somehow its come full circle and made it complete. There’s no need for another. [...]

[...] This will be the last Hannibal flick. The final chapter. Both Anthony Hopkins and Julianne Moore will play the lead roles again, but there will be also a second FBI agent who hunts our "hero". But that's not all... Will Graham/Edward Norton will return as well, in a cameo. There's a structural parallel to SILENCE: Clarice contacts a maniac. [...]

[13.03.2002] Light Out Entertainment meldet...
Edward Norton had some time off from the set of Red Dragon, while the crew finished up scenes with Anthony "call me Tony" Hopkins. Hopkins finished up his work as the menacing Hannibal Lecter about a week ago. Hopkins worked a total of three weeks on the film. A few scenes with Lecter took place in the cell from the film The Silence of the Lambs, which Oscar winning Production Designer Kristi Zea (who also did Silence), faithfully reproduced on one of the stages at Universal. A few changes were added which have to do with several new plot points.
The film is about midway thru production with the remainder having to do with Ed Norton's character Will Graham's pursuit of Frances Dollarhyde (played by Ralph Fiennes). The company has several more weeks to shoot in L.A. before going off to Baltimore and Florida. Word is Ed Norton's behavior on set was strictly professional while in the presence of Anthony Hopkins, but now that Sir Anthony is off to his next gig, the real question is: Will Norton and director Brett Ratner get back to their shouting matches and stand-off's? We'll keep you posted.


[08.03.2002] EW.com wirft einen Blick auf "Red Dragon"...
[...] in the absence of Lecter's perversely affectionate relationship with Clarice Starling (the character is, of course, absent from ''Red Dragon'') Hopkins will get to portray a different side of the cannibal. Says Ratner: "Hannibal Lecter in this movie is much more still, much more tense, much more angry.... He is Manson. He's a crazy f---." [...]

[06.03.2002] Bei Hannibal's Palace gibt es einen exklusiven Blick auf das "Red Dragon"-Logo... Derweil veröffentlichte Coming Attractions eine Meldung über den Trailer...
"I was at the local mall today and was shown a preview for Red Dragon for market research purposes. It starts out with Norton talking to the police force about the serial killer they are trying to apprehend. This is an approximate, but one of the police officers asks Norton why the killer continues killing and Norton replies, 'Because he feels like God. Would you want to give that up?' It then moves on to Keitel and Norton talking in a cafe about a previous case. Norton states that he didn't solve the case on his own; he had some help. The preview then mentions Ralph Fiennes and Emily Watson as an image is shown of the two of them together in a dinning room. Then it shows Norton walking down a hallway to a glass wall where Hopkins steps out of the shadows. He says, 'Hello Will' and gives a very eerie smile. It cuts to black and the title is shown. Overall, a very effective preview. It's nice to see a slow build up to with no quick cuts and without giving any of the story away."

[14.01.2002] Bei Coming Soon! gibt es ein Interview mit Brett Ratner, in dem er sich u.a. zu "Red Dragon" äussert...
[...] "It's a wonderful script and I am so excited. It's going back to a more intellectual version of the series," says Ratner in response to questions about "Red Dragon".
I asked about his choices in casting and especially regarding Ralph Fiennes as the serial killer known as the "Tooth Fairy". "I loved him in 'Schindler's List' and he was some what of a serial killer in that movie. He is also a brilliant actor and he has the coldness in his eyes. The character also has to have a 'supreme superiority' and I see that quality in Ralph." [...]


[08.01.2002] Die NZ berichtet über "Red Dragon"...

[04.01.2002] CHUD hat neue Gerüchte bzgl. eines "Hannibal"-Sequels...
[...] It seems director Ridley Scott isn't finished with the character, if what Winston tells us is to be believed. Scott has reportedly discussed the subject with producer Dino DeLaurentiis for a potential "Hannibal Returns", and additionally Anthony Hopkins has met with screenwriter Steve Zaillian about where they'd like to possibly take the character. Another report claims that the film would be told in flashbacks and feature FBI Agent Starling hunting a different serial killer. [...]

[01.01.2002] Cindy Pearlman sprach mit Emily Watson über ihre Rolle in "Red Dragon"...
"I've already met with Anthony Hopkins, who loves to come up behind you and make that Hannibal sucking noise... I'm into it, too. The first thing I did when I got the part was buy myself a nice Chianti." Watson plays Rebecca McClaine, the blind girl from the book The Red Dragon. She's joined by Hopkins as Hannibal, Edward Norton as the investigator plus Harvey Keitel as the police chief and Ralph Fiennes as a nutcase. "It's a lot different from the Michael Mann movie 'Manhunter,' which left out so much," Watson divulges. "This is much closer to the book." The movie finds a young Hannibal being arrested by the cops and then helping find Watson who is being held hostage by Fiennes. As for the gore factor, Watson says, "The movie 'Hannibal' was more graphic than our movie. We're telling a story that's much more like 'Silence of the Lambs' in that it left a lot to your imagination."

[05.12.2001] Coming Soon! berichtet, dass Ralph Fiennes (u.a. "Der Englische Patient") die "Zahnfee" spielen wird...
Ralph Fiennes has been cast in the title role of Universal Pictures' "Red Dragon" for director Brett Ratner and producers Dino and Martha De Laurentiis. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is scheduled to go into production next month. Anthony Hopkins is reprising his role as psychiatrist-cannibal Hannibal Lecter for the film, which is based on Thomas Harris' 1981 best-selling crime-thriller novel of the same name. Edward Norton, Emily Watson, Harvey Keitel, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Mary-Louise Parker also star.
Ted Tally adapted the screenplay, which centers on a serial killer called Red Dragon (Fiennes) who is on the loose, bringing FBI agent Will Graham (Norton) out of retirement because he has a special talent for catching such killers.
