Demme responded that Thomas Harrisauthor of The Silence of the Lambshad been working on the follow-up for "seven or eight years".
Demme had an idea even at that time that it would not be a straight follow-up. Harris had told Demme: De Laurentiis did not like Mann's film: De Laurentiis and his wife Martha also his co-producer had no direct involvement in The Silence of the Lambs, a decision De Laurentiis came to regret.
They did, however, own the rights to the Lecter character and reportedly allowed Orion Pictureswhich produced The Silence of the Lambs, to use the character of Lecter for free, not wishing to be "greedy". When The Silence of the Lambs became a commercial and critical success inwinning five Academy Awardsboth Dino and Martha De Laurentiis found themselves sitting on a valuable asset and eager for a follow-up novel they could adapt.

But for Starling, no.
I think one of the attractions about Starling to Hannibal is what a straight arrow she is. Harris said he was not, so Scott changed it. Tally, like Demme, had problems with the novel's "excesses".
He explained that "I was busy. And I wasn't sure I was interested. You can almost never win when you do a sequel. If you were to ask who were the best three screenwriters in the business, Steve Zaillian would be one of them. We discussed Hannibal endlessly.
He is very fast, very efficient, but he was off doing a film. But I was scared that he would not be able to give me enough attention, because that draft needed a lot of work. So I moved on basically.Gladiator () questions and answers, plus mistakes, trivia, quotes and more.
