Mads Mikkelsen doesn’t give up on Hannibal: “It’s not over”

Series creator Bryan Fuller has ideas for a potential reboot still under discussion.

Hannibal Lecter is certainly one of the most iconic villains in cinema history. First played by Brian Cox in Michael Mann (The Sixth Sense was released in 1986), then by Anthony Hopkins In Thesilenceofthelambs (1991), Hannibal (2001) and Red Dragon (2002), and finally by Gaspard Ulliel in Hannibal Lecter: The Origins of Evil (2007), the character enjoyed a second glory thanks to Mads Mikkelsen in the series Hannibal.

Created by Brian Fuller for NBC, it aired for three seasons between 2013 and 2015 before being canceled. Could she rise from the ashes? Maybe on another channel or on a streaming platform?

I really don’t want to come back to any of my characters, except maybe Hannibal because it’s not finished yet, declares the Danish actor in an interview for Business Insider, It’s no secret that all of us who were in the cast, including Bryan, all want to go back. This needs to happen as soon as possible because we’re not getting any younger, are we?”, he explains.

Despite the fairly significant time lapse between the original series and a future reboot, Mads Mikkelsen thinks that this is not a problem and that on the contrary, it can be used as a narrative tool: “The story itself can skip a few years, it can have that gap, that would be nice. It is therefore a question of finding him a home, but there is nothing concrete at the moment. (…) We love the show and there seem to be a lot of other people who love it too.

Even if nothing is confirmed regarding a reboot ofHannibalthis did not prevent Mikkelsen And Fuller to come together for a feature film in preparation. The showrunner plans to direct Dust Bunny with the actor in the leading role. The star also said that Brian Fullerhad some ideas” for a reboot ofHannibalbut that he could not reveal anything “in case we get serious about it.”All we have to do is keep our fingers crossed!
