When “Red Dragon” was released, the rumour mill went into overdrive with gossip about another ‘Hannibal Lector’ movie that Anthony Hopkins was said to be writing. Never heard much about it, until now.
Screen Daily is reporting that Dino De Laurentiis will be developing The Lecter Variation which is currently being plotted by Lecter’s creator Thomas Harris.
The film, which is being subtitled "The Story of Young Hannibal Lecter", follows the serial killer from his childhood in Lithuania through a period in Paris in his teens to his arrival in the US. De Laurentiis said that four actors will be required to play young Lecter at the ages of 12, 16, 20 and 25.
"Lecter was born into a very rich family but the war destroyed his family and killed his parents," explained De Laurentiis. "He was left with his sister with whom he had a very close relationship."
Universal – who released “Red Dragon” and “Hannibal” will release this fourth instalment. Harris has written the story for the producer and is likely to write the screenplay himself as well as a book. The title refers to Bach’s Goldberg Variations which have been a recurring musical reference in the Lecter saga to date.
Doesn’t sound like Hopkins is even involved this time, hey?
