'Hannibal' Attracts Mamet

Playwright and screenwriter David Mamet is in talks to do the screenplay for the movie adaptation of “Hannibal,” Thomas Harris’s hot-selling sequel to “The Silence of the Lambs.” The Hollywood Reporter says Mamet became interested in the project after reading the book and after Ted Tally — who wrote the screenplay for “Silence of the Lambs” — passed on penning the sequel.
