Prepare Yourself for the Hannibalception: Jodie Foster Might Direct a 'Hannibal' Series Episode

By Cindy Davis | Trade News | August 27, 2014 | Comments ()


Holy Abel Gideonchops, people…the Hannibalception is nigh. Though Fuller and company are still working on getting the rights to Thomas Harris’ Clarice Starling, the NBC series may just have scored the real deal: Jodie Foster, herself. Please remain calm (I’m having trouble.)

After meeting up at HBO’s Emmy party the other night, Hannibal series creator and showrunner Bryan Fuller was overheard asking Foster if she’d be interested in directing a Season 3 episode — the actress/director said she’d think it over (hopefully that means “clear her schedule?”).

Hopefully Mads doesn’t do this:

    Also I haven't posted a Hannibal gif in a while so here you go:


  • ZbornakSyndrome

    I want a dragon Mikkelsen! That is so cute.

    Meanwhile, I'm on Tumblr, reassuring myself that I don't have the weirdest mind in existence:


  • emmalita

    That one is particularly ADORABLE.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Damn it! I have to work today! Carry on without me but know that I will be gutted that I can't join the Gif party!
    here's one for the road:


  • DarthBrookes

    This is somehow (I didn't think it possible) scarier and more unsettling than both Hannibal and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

    My subconscious has A LOT of explaining to do regarding this erection.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Mads would. Mads really would. Given a plausible enough excuse, Mads would totally put on the fishnets and sparkly corset and twirl his beautiful legs around.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Fuller said he wanted to do a musical scene in Hannibal's Mind Palace! Don't you think a Rocky Horror Dance would be appropriate?


  • emmalita

    That looks suspiciously like Sherlock and Watson.

  • ZbornakSyndrome


  • delle

    I am feeling strongly compelled to get on my knees and pray that someone gives him a plausible excuse

  • Ryan Ambrose

    Haninibal .gif party? Hannibal .gif party.


  • Where is the original gif from anyway?

  • Ryan Ambrose

    I believe it's from the third season of Community, the darkest timeline episode if I'm not mistaken.

  • Dulce et Banana

    The person who constructed that one - especially for Raul - deserves some sort of prize. Brill.

  • Jamie Dello Stritto

    I typically wouldn't point this stuff out, but since it's both in the headline and the article, It's Jodie Foster. *sorry, running away now...

  • Dove of Doom

    It would be surprising for Foster to return to the franchise in any capacity after she so pointedly abandoned it when Ridley Scott made "Hannibal."

  • ed newman

    In retrospect that seems like the right move. Maybe she read the Hannibal script and made a wise decision.

  • Dove of Doom

    What I've read is that she objected to the twisted ending Clarice gets in the novel which was completely changed in the script, and she rejected the film nonetheless. The show's analogue for Starling, Anna Chlumsky's Miriam Lass, has already fallen under Hannibal's influence in a similarly disturbing way, so I wonder if she might have similar objections to the material.

  • Zirza

    ...but appropriate, considering Hannibal the movie was terrible and Hannibal the TV show isn't.

  • DarthBrookes

    It could have been worse.

    It could have been Hannibal Rising.

  • Pants-are-a-must



  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Hannibal Party? I'll bring the people! I mean snacks, yeah, snacks...


  • emmalita

    Oh holy Jeebus! Who did that to Mads?

  • Dulce et Banana

    Strict diet regimen is called for. Effective immediately, Zborny and you to keep a close watch.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    The tumblr fannibals are majestic, twisted persons.


  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Fannibals are welcoming...in their own special way:

  • emmalita

    They really are magnificent and twisted.

  • luckypete

    That would be fantastic, for the cinematic connection and the fact hat she's quite the talented director. BUT, this is taking a huge leap of optimism here. Let's all keep in mind that she "was overheard" saying she'd think about it at a post-awards show to the show creator. Fairly conversational. But I also hate to ruin a good party, so bring on the gifs and all things Hannibal!

  • Dulce et Banana

    Oh where oh where is @ZbornakSyndrome - we need Mads GIFs STAT!

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Every post needs a little Mads magic!


  • emmalita

    ZbornakSyndrome will join us tomorrow with mad Mads gifs. For now,

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Oh, I couldn't wait 24 whole hours to post! Who am I kidding:

  • emmalita

    How did you escape from my Mads gif making factory? I mean, Welcome Back!!

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    My dinner break is in front of a computer. It's also mac n cheese and not beautifully prepared people-food...but I'll settle for a Hannibal themed reading instead of dinner.


  • Uriah_Creep

    "People-food"? Did you just do what I think you did?

  • emmalita


  • luthien26

    Dear god, that smirk!
