David Slade (30 Days Of Night, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) will be taking a rest from the vampire action for a bit, as he has been tapped to direct the pilot episode of “Hannibal”. This is just the most recent foray into television for the helmer.
Per Deadline, “Feature director David Slade is set to direct the pilot for Hannibal, NBC’s 13-episode series from Gaumont International Television… This marks Slade’s return to NBC where he directed the pilot for freshman drama Awake last season. He most recently helmed the Lifetime drama pilot American Housewife starring Melanie Griffith.”
As previously reported, Hugh Dancy (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Black Hawk Down) is set to play Will Graham in NBC’s 13-episode series, which is written and executive produced by Bryan Fuller and executive produced by Martha DeLaurentiis. The project is described as a contemporary thriller 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.
