British actor Hugh Dancy (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Black Hawk Down) is set as one of the two leads in “Hannibal,” NBC’s 13-episode series from Gaumont International Television, written and executive produced by Bryan Fuller and executive produced by Martha DeLaurentiis, reports Deadline.
The project is described as a contemporary thriller series featuring the classic characters from Thomas Harris’ novel “Red Dragon” – FBI agent Will Graham (Dancy) and his mentor Dr. Hannibal Lecter – who are re-introduced at the beginning of their budding relationship.
The role of Will Graham was played by Ed Norton in the 2002 movie adaptation, in which Anthony Hopkins reprised his Oscar-winning role as twisted series killer Hannibal Lecter.
Dancy, an Emmy nominee for HBO’s “Elizabeth I,” recently recurred on the Showtime comedy series “The Big C.”
