He has an obsession with Hannibal, so we do get in touch. Given the nature of the TV show, I would be very surprised if we don’t see them having some kind of interaction, more than just ‘getting in touch’.
So I can’t really tell you what’s gonna happen but I think ‘showdown’ is a small word for what’s happening.
It’s fantastic to work with Richard – not only him but also the [actress] who plays Reba* – we’ve managed to find two fantastic actors who are really up for the task, and they’re taking at least 5 or 6 episodes of the show. So we needed strong actors for that, and I know for sure that they have accomplished that 100%.
In the book, Dolarhyde only has contact with Lecter through letters and, in fact, Lecter is hardly in the Red Dragon story at all. I can't imagine Fuller cutting out his chief star for 6 episodes, so I am pleased that it sounds as if he has rewritten this a bit and that we might be getting more of a 'showdown' between the two.
