hannibalBrian Reitzell is scoring the upcoming NBC drama Hannibal. The show is based on the characters from Thomas Harris’ classic novels (The Silence of the Lambs, Red Dragon) and stars Hugh Dancy as Will Graham and Mads Mikkelsen as Hannibal Lecter. Laurence Fishburne, Caroline Dhavernas, Eddie Izzard, Gina Torres, Molly Shannon, Gillian Anderson, Ellen Greene and Chelan Simmons are co-starring. The show, which centers on the serial killer’s budding relationship with the FBI agent, is developed by Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies) who is also executive producing the project with Martha De Laurentiis (film versions of Hannibal, Red Dragon and Hannibal Rising), Sara Colleton (Dexter), Jesse Alexander (Lost) and Katie O’Connell. David Slade (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Hard Candy) who has previously collaborated with Reitzell on the feature 30 Days of Night and the NBC pilot Awake has directed the pilot episode and also serves as an executive producer. Hannibal is expected to premiere this spring on NBC. For updates on the series, visit the official show website.

Reitzell is also music supervising Sofia Coppola’s upcoming drama The Bling Ring starring Emma Watson. He also served as the music supervisor on Gus Van Sant’s Promised Land starring Matt Damon, which opens in limited release today.

    Does that mean they aren’t keeping Dooley’s pilot score? Or is Reitzell just scoring the rest of the episodes?

    Your work on NBC’s Hannibal sucks. Really makes the show hard to watch. Like the show but cant stand all the god awful background music
