Dino De Laurentiis, producer of Hannibal Rising (due February 9) told MTV that he is interesting in making even more films about the character Hannibal Lecter.
“I presume that we created a success with this new franchise about young Hannibal Lecter, and I want to start to think about going ahead with the story,” de Laurentiis said.
De Laurentiis continued, adding that any future story he’d like to concentrate on the relationship between Lecter and his ‘Rising‘ love interest, Gong Li. “You see in the movie that … it’s an attraction, but nothing serious happens. In the future, maybe something happens, if we go with [another sequel].”
