is Hannibal Lecter ready for a combo-pic?

i think that it's time that Thomas Harris started thinking in terms of Movie Algebra for his next picture. i just realized (perhaps a little later than the rest of the world) that there will be a fourth Hannibal Lecter-based movie called Hannibal Rising coming out in the new year. it seems he's already taken his first Movie Algebra step and removed all of the big-named actors from the picture. sorry, no Anthony Hopkins - this is a teenage Lecter we're talking aboot.

but let's think hard though - if we're going to put a psychopath killer in a combo-pic, we need to team him up with just the right other film:
  • Dr. Giggles perhaps? that would lend a bit more gore and humour to the film
  • how's aboot The Dentist? well, only if Corben Bernsen would come back to the role, and i know he's not big on sequels. not that i know that's a fact or anything, i'm just making that up
or maybe you could go with a name connection rather than the occupation connection...
  • i think the A-Team could work - remember how awesome Hannibal was in the show - and it's been announced that there'll be an A-Team movie in 2008
all these decisions to make. how do the hollywood people do it? i'm sure that however it may work out, that the 5th Hannibal Lecter movie will end up being an Alan Smithee production.

    My sister begged my dad to let us rent Dr. Giggles. He didn't cave one bit. A year or two later it came on the Movie network.

    I think it was the very first movie I ever turned off. I don't know how it ended, and I don't care.

    i watched it because i try desparately to watch every movie i see from beginning to end.

    there are a handful i haven't, but i'm pretty sure that eventually i will.

    i think it has to do with some sort of mild OCD that i have.

    Speaking of movies: Look! http://www.indieflix.com/FilmDetail.aspx?tid=7149

    Help fund my wedding! Except not really because I think about $3 comes back from every purchase and the guy who put out $10K will get paid back first.

    Or look at the review and spread the word: http://www.microfilmmaker.com/critiques/Issue15/Ghos_Ham.html

    Kay, I'm done plagueing your thing.

    Blogger is being such a bitch. It kept making my comments disappear except the one above! GRRRR.

    I still think Silence of the Lambs with Jodie Foster is in is the best amongst all Hannibal movies.

    God, I've never watched a Hannibal movie. Or maybe i have, i just didn't know it. Hmmm...
