NBC Debuts Key Art For ‘Hannibal’ Series

Filming for NBC’s highly anticipated Hannibal series is currently underway, but that hasn’t stopped them from releasing some bad-ass key art featuring Hannibal Lecter himself, Mads Mikkelsen. The series is being developed by Bryan Fuller and will take place before the events of Silence of the Lambs and follows Lecter and FBI Agent Will Graham:

Will Graham is a gifted criminal profiler who is on the hunt for a serial killer with the FBI. Graham’s unique way of thinking gives him the astonishing ability to empathize with anyone – even psychopaths. He seems to know what makes them tick. But when the mind of the twisted killer he’s pursuing is too complicated for even Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Dr. Lecter, one of the premier psychiatric minds in the country. Armed with the uncanny expertise of the brilliant doctor, Will and Hannibal (known as a serial killer only to the audience) form a brilliant partnership and it seems there’s no villain they can’t catch. If Will only knew…

Mads Mikkelsen will portray the infamous cannibal and the casting couldn’t have been any better. He’s amazingly talented and under the radar — but most importantly — he’s creepy as shit. He will star alongside Hugh Dancy as Agent Will Graham and Laurence Fishburne who plays Agent Jack Crawford. Other notable cast members include Eddie Izzard, Gillian Anderson, Gina Torres, Lance Henriksen, Molly Shannon, Ellen Greene and Chelan Simmons.

NBC opted to skip out on the usual pilot episode process and has already ordered an entire first season series. They are certainly showing some confidence with their series and I don’t blame them. With that cast and the potential in a classic monster like Hannibal Lecter, there’s a lot to be confident about.

  1. Incredible, incredible cast. I hope Fuller finally gets lucky this time. That photo really has me excited. Let’s hope The Following won’t ruin any chance this film has, seeing it’s plot sounds very similar (Cat and Mouse serial killer/detective).

    1. The cast is definitely one of the better ones for all of these upcoming horror series. Mikkelsen is brilliant! Also, I’m glad to see Anderson in this. It should be fun!

  2. I Don’t Really Know What The World Yet Things About MADS MILKELSEN But I Love The Guy. He Was A Classic Bond Foe, And Now I’m Ready To See More Of Him. I Think He’d Be The PERFECT Lecter!!! And I’d See It Anyway Just Because Of LANCE HENRIKSEN And GILLIAN ANDERSEN!!!
    I’m VERY Ready For this One, Dude!!!
    With That Cast, I’d Likely Still Watch It Even If It Were Terrible hahahahaha

  3. Im down with Mads Mikkelsen, but I just dont know how theyre going to translate this to TV. We’ll see I guess.

    Between this and Bates Motel we’re going to get some classic horror villains reinterpreted on the small screen this year…
