"When a dream is born in your childhood. When you spend a decade daring to pursue it... The day, a head of a studio says... 'I want to make all three films of your Hannibal trilogy!' Haha... It takes a minute to sink in... Shhhhh... it's still sinking in."
The plan has always been for Vin Diesel to star as Hannibal Barca, the famed general who lead his army across the mountains to attack Rome in 3rd Century B.C. Back in 2006, BET gave the green light for a six-episode animated TV series, which Vin Diesel would have executive produced, along with voicing the title character. That project never saw the light of day, but it seems Hannibal the Conqueror might be on its way.
Hannibal the Conqueror is in development and stars Vin Diesel. The film is directed by Vin Diesel.
