Lovely Asian actress Gong Li ("The Emperor and the Assassin") looks to be the hot new import. Variety reports that Ms. Li has just signed up to play the villain in Michael Mann‘s "Miami Vice" adaptation, plus she’ll also show up as a woman who "teaches cultural sophistication to a young Hannibal Lecter."The fifth onscreen adventure of Hannibal the Cannibal is a prequel entitled "Behind the Mask," which is being written by novelist Thomas Harris and directed by Peter Webber ("Girl with a Pearl Earring").
