SDCC: 'Hannibal' Could Continue As Film

Since its cancelation at NBC, Bryan Fuller's gory, gorgeous take on Hannibal Lecter has been a prime candidate for a second life. And even though Hannibal failed to gain traction at Amazon or Netflix, there's a tantalizing new possibility for the show's future.

The Hollywood Reporter notes that at Comic-Con International, Fuller spoke to fans to say how dedicated he is to bringing back actors Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy for more stories. "We are still looking; we don't have a lot of answers and we're looking at the possibility of a feature," Fuller said. "So we have Hugh and Mads, who are very committed to the show and would love to continue with the show. The way this season ends, we have the opportunity for a break and hopefully we'll be able to find a way to bring Mads and Hugh back to you."

The actors were recently released from their contracts by series co-producer Gaumont TV, but both men have expressed an interest to continue adapting the classic horror novels by Thomas Harris.
