Tom Cruise may be about to cast himself as a version of Hannibal Lecter.
According to Variety, United Artists have acquired rights to serial-killer thriller "The Monster of Florence," with Cruise attached to produce and possibly to star.
Co-author of the bestseller Douglas Preston just spilled the beans in Venice.
The film would reconstruct eight grisly double homicides between 1968 and 1985 in and around the ancient city.
Fans of Anthony Hopkins’ turn as Hannibal Lecter will remember how that serial killer made Florence his home in Hannibal.
