You didn't really think you'd seen the last of Hannibal Lecter, did you? He'll take to the screen again in a new film that will track the killer cannibal from childhood.

"The Lecter Variation: The Story of Young Hannibal Lecter" is being mapped out by his creator, Thomas Harris. The character was made famous by Anthony Hopkins in "The Silence of the Lambs."

Producer Dino De Laurentiis said four actors will be needed to play Hannibal at the ages of 12, 16, 20 and 25 in a film that will trace his childhood in Lithuania through his teenage years in Paris to his arrival in the United States.
