Those who are waiting anxiously for the sequel to "The Silence of the Lambs" have a "Red Dragon" to look forward to.
No, it's not a martial arts flick, but a third film in the works starring everyone's favorite human muncher, Hannibal Lecter. Universal Pictures and the producers behind "Hannibal" are planning a third chapter of the Lecter saga. Anthony Hopkins, who won the role of the crazed cannibal in "Silence," is reportedly interested in reprising his Oscar-winning role for a third time, provided he likes the script, The Hollywood Reporter says.
The third film would be based on author Thomas Harris' 1981 bestseller "Red Dragon," the book that introduced the world to the psychiatrist who took a liking to the taste of human flesh. With such anticipation for the release of "Hannibal" on Feb. 9, the producers decided that a third installment would be a good move to cash in. It would also fill audiences in on the crime Lecter committed and how he was eventually caught.
Ted Tally, who won an Oscar for his screenplay of "The Silence of the Lambs," has been hired to pen the third film. He's expected to finish the screenplay by mid-March with filming to begin in July.
Michael Mann directed from his own adapted screenplay a feature version of "Red Dragon" titled "Manhunter" with British actor Brian Cox as Lecter back in 1986.
It’s the story of America's youth. It's the story of outcasts who band

this is a good intro course to the techno world and from now on you'll
be able to love or hate this music with a more informed opinion.
Who the hell are all these people with names such as Frankie Bones DJ
Spooky Loop Guru Moby Scanner and so on? They're the DJs and computer
nerds who make those booming beats on their Macs and turntables and
some of their stories are pretty fascinating. With their do-it-yourself
ethic and their quest to create a new music art form these folks
actually come off as real human beings (like the guy who got into
deejaying by spinning his dead father's record collection).
If you've ever been to a rave you know that there are a few
fundamentals: A darkened empty building (usually a warehouse); loud
thumping and incessant music; weird lights and images streaming across
the walls; and of course the DJ. Director Jon Reiss who used to make
videos for Nine Inch Nails brings the party to the screen without
polishing the grit to an MTV-style gloss. See it in a theater with good
