Ed Norton will climb inside the mind of Hannibal Lecter for the Silence of the Lambs prequel Red Dragon. Norton will play Will Graham, the FBI agent who discovers the flesh eating psychiatrist, while trying to track down another serial killer "The Tooth Fairy" (known for simply biting his victims). The Red Dragon novel was written way back in 1981 by Thomas Harris, before he penned Lambs and Hannibal, both of which were box office blockbusters. Ted Tally, who doctored up the Lambs novel for the screen (and won an Oscar for doing so) will adapt Red Dragon for the screen. Jonathan Demme nor Ridley Scott will be back for the prequel, rather Brett Ratner, known for The Family Man and the Rush Hour flicks will sit in the director's chair for what could be the final chapter for Doctor Hannibal Lecter.
