The Silence of the Lambs TV show that will focus on the character Clarice Starling has found its lead. Australian actor Rebecca Breeds (Home And Away, Pretty Little Liars) has been cast as the FBI agent for the show that takes place after The Silence of the Lambs. Only a pilot episode has been ordered at this point, so there is no word yet on if the show will be picked up to series.
Star Trek bosses Alex Kurtzmann and Jenny Lumet are the showrunners for the CBS TV show, which will focus on Clarice’s “untold personal story.” Following the traumatic events of The Silence of the Lambs, Clarice goes back into the field to hunt down other serial killers while also dealing with the politics of Washington D.C.
Jodie Foster played Clarice in the 1991 Silence of the Lambs movie, and she won the Best Actress Oscar for her performance. Clarice returned in 2001’s Hannibal movie, though Foster elected to not return; instead, Julianne Moore played Clarice.
