Hannibal Is Back
Thomas Harris just turned in the manuscript for "Hannibal Rising," the novel that depicts the early years of the lovable cannibal. It's due out Dec. 5, a good thing since the movie version is due out in February. This was an odd project all around: Harris notoriously private and slow, but worked on the screenplay BEFORE he finished the book it was (sort of) based on. Maybe the deadline helped him? And maybe he'll overcome the sometimes angry and mocking reviews that greeted "Hannibal."
