The chances of this movie actually being any good are pretty slim, although I am a huge Lecter fan. But with Peter Webber (Girl with a Pearl Earring) at the helm, we may be in for some more twisted elegance that the series demands. And Gaspard Ulliel (A Very Long Engagement) seems to be eerily channeling Anthony Hopkins' immortal performance...a few of his lines are so Hopkins-esque they gave me chills ("Now tell me inspector...you lost family in the war? Did you catch who did it? Then we are both suspects...").
Here's hoping this isn't the train wreck it has a chance to be.
