Join our short film to tell the world why we need ‘Hannibal’ S4
We were nowhere near ready for Hannibal to end. The lush, atmospheric NBC drama from Bryan Fuller brought electric chemistry between Mads Mikkelsen’s Hannibal Lecter and Hugh Dancy’s Will Graham. One of the best horror shows on television Hannibal followed the infamous cannibal of Silence of the Lambs.
Why is Hannibal worth saving?
Mikkelsen perfectly embodies a terrifying and charismatic killer, Hannibal Lecter, walking the line between our repulsion and fascination with serial killers. His process of taking down the FBI’s investigation from the inside is so spectacularly manipulative we can’t turn away.
Meanwhile, Dancy’s Will Graham allows for the humanization of Hannibal, making it more than just a horror show. Hannibal would have nothing if it didn’t have Will and Hannibal’s emotional connection. The two bond in ways that build over the series, as Will becomes fascinated with how Hannibal works in relation to the other criminals he interviews.
When Hannibal ended back in 2015, Fuller knew he had something worth saving, and began shopping the show for another season. Amazon Prime and Netflix both reportedly expressed interest, but deals fell through with both streaming services.
What else can we do to save Hannibal?
Bryan Fuller keeps telling fans to hold out hope, and if he’s still fighting for the show, then we are too. Hannibal deserves to live again, especially if the next season takes on the iconic Silence of the Lambs plot from the Red Dragon series. We at Film Daily know quite a thing or two about the fight to save a quality show, and we are constantly brainstorming new ideas to keep great stories on the air.
We’ve talked a lot about petitions, rewatch campaigns and hashtags, but we have a new idea, and we need help from the Fannibals. Let’s make a short film about Hannibal fands. We can use this film to show decision-makers how passionate about this TV show we really are.
