Previously filmed by Michael Mann as "Manhunter," this prequel stars Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter, with Edward Norton as ex-FBI agent Will Graham and Ralph Fiennes as Francis Dolarhyde, the horrific killer known as "The Tooth Fairy."
Drawn from the novel written by Thomas Harris before "The Silence of the Lambs" and "Hannibal," the film's screenwriter is Ted Tally ("Lambs").
The cast includes Harvey Kietel, Emily Watson, Mary Louise Parker and Philip Seymour Harris.
Brett Ratner ("Rush Hour 2") directs this tale of Graham's decision to delve into the mind of "Hannibal the Cannibal," who nearly killed him. RCopyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
