De Laurentiises Bless "Evil Dead" Remake ... and Want More "Hannibal"
"If he has the right idea, why not?" said the producer. "When I pushed Sam Raimi with everybody, they thought I was crazy because I was in love with younger people. I said, ?I can be in love but not with younger people. I can be in love with talented people.? If Sam Raimi is a fantastic talent, and he proved how talented he is, he is Sam Raimi, if he has an idea to remake a movie, let him do the movie."
Now joined by producer wife Martha De Laurentiis, she concurs with Dino's assessment. "Yes, he?s a genius," she said. "He?ll have a lot more money to make it with this time."
Scott here. Dino D. has been all over the geek-wires lately, and here's what he had to say about the possibility of yet another Hannibal Lecter movie: "I presume that we created a success with this new franchise about young Hannibal Lecter, and I want to start to think about going ahead with the story." According to a report at MTV Movies, Dino wants to go deeper into the love story between the young Lecter and the "Hannibal Rising" character played by Gong Li.
