NBC has created its own spin on the 1991 thriller "Silence of the Lambs" with "Hannibal," and now Lifetime is angling to tell the other side of the story.
According to TV Guide, the network is developing a drama called "Clarice," named for the character Jodie Foster portrayed in the film opposite Anthony Hopkins' Dr. Hannibal Lecter.
"Clarice," which is still in the early stages of development, would focus on Clarice Starling's life not long after she graduates from the FBI academy.
The new teaser trailer for Tom Hooper's "Les Miserables" may be brief, but it's powerful nonetheless.
The minute-and-a-half long clip makes great use of Anne Hathaway as Fantine, as her rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" serves as the soundtrack for the teaser.
Tom Hooper's take on the classic tale set in 19th century France wields a star-studded cast, including Hugh Jackman as paroled prisoner Jean Valjean; Amanda Seyfried as Cosette; Russell Crowe as Inspector Javert; and theater star Samantha Barks as Eponine.
Believe it or not, Stephenie Meyer, the woman behind the vampire romance series “Twilight,” says she hasn’t read the popular book trilogy “Fifty Shades of Grey," which has its roots in "Twilight" fan fiction.
But that connection still didn't tempt her to pick up the books, as Meyer says she's just not into racy reads.
"I haven't read it. I mean, that's really not my genre, not my thing," she told MTV about British author E.L. James’ runaway success, which was recently optioned into a movie. "I've heard about it; I haven't really gotten into it that much. Good on her - she's doing well. That's great!"
Today's news you might've missed:

In a statement on TVLine, the network's president, Nancy Dubuc, said that the History Channel has "[owned] historical drama ... with guns a-blazin'!"
Although Christian Bale is happy with the way his character Bruce Wayne's story ends in this summer's "Dark Knight Rises," he is going to miss slipping into that snug Batman costume.
"You know, for all the kind of discomfort, and all the heat and the sweat and the headaches and everything from it, when you sit back and watch the movie at the end of the day you end up going, 'that's f*****g cool!'" Bale told Movies.com of his alter-ego's iconic outfit. "So I will. I will miss it."
As far as the extent of his interaction with Anne Hathaway's Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Bale played coy, saying that fans will just have to wait to see the movie when it arrives in theaters July 20.
In the meantime, there's the latest "Dark Knight Rises" TV spot to view. It's only 30 seconds, but we'll take it!
