A new film studio called Gaumont has just announced its plans to create a new television series for NBC based on Hannibal Lecter, the infamous character in Thomas Harris’ novel, Red Dragon, and made famous by Sir Anthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs.

There’s not many details regarding the plot and cast but we know that the show “would center around Lecter’s early days, namely his time going head-to-head with FBI agent, Will Graham. The hour-long drama will be written and produced by Bryan Fuller (Heroes) and will go straight to a 13-episode order if NBC likes Fuller’s script.

Anything related to Hannibel Lecter is bound to be creepy, so we’re interested in learning more about what Fuller’s cooking up.
