Hopkins: More Hannibal, Please

It ain't over till it's over for Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter, according to Anthony Hopkins, 63. The actor, whose movie "Hannibal" took in $58 million at the North American box office last weekend, gave members of the press some (ugh) food for thought this weekend when he revealed at the Berlin International Film Festival that he's ready to return for more. "I would like to do one more sequel, which is being discussed," said Hopkins. "Hopefully, that will be fairly soon, maybe next year." As for why Hannibal and the gorefest surrounding him are so attractive to modern-day audiences, Hopkins surmised, "We are fascinated by the darkness in ourselves. it's part of our mechanism, the duality in our psyche, the light and the dark." Well, keep the lights on.
