    I was just curious if there is any kind of news on the new cut of Hannibal? I remember hearing that either a 4 hour version? would be shown on TV as a mini series or that a DVD release would happen. Anyone know the details?
    THank you

    The TV series would "star" Vin Diesel as the famous Cartagenian general Hannibal Barca (Hannibal ante portas!). I do hope you're not mixing this up with the other Hannibal, as in certain silent lambs.

    No, Cees. There was talk when Hannibal first came out that NBC or ABC bought the rights to Hannibal and when it came on TV, it would be an extended TV director's cut or something like that. Rumored length was 4 hours at the time.

    I see. Thanks. Did it get any further than a rumour?

    One of the networks owns the rights and that was their original plans. That's all I know. Never heard anything more once "Hannibal mania" died down.

    Thread moved from Software to TV Shows and retitled to clarify what is being asked about.

    Wasn't there a whole subplot of a serial killer that they removed from the film? I forget if it was in the deleted scenes or not though.
    Thanks
