Everyone’s favorite psycopath is back, reports SKNR.net. On November 28th, author Thomas Harris is set to release "Behind the Mask," the next chapter in the life of cannibal genius Hannibal Lecter. The story is said to follow young Lecter in World War II and his relationship with his sister and family — which is shattered by a Nazi occupation and subsequent atrocities.
According to the IMDb, the movie version is nearing completion, with Peter Webber ("Girl With a Pearl Earring") in the director’s chair and French actor Gaspard Ulliel in the role of young Hannibal. No release date is set, although it looks to be a Weinstein Co. production.
