She has never verified any of the rumors (that I am aware), only to say once that she didn't agree with the script and that she was doing two other movies at the same time.

I can't remember where I read it or heard her say, but I think she felt like Clarice became "too sympathetic to Hannibal" in the script. Which could mean the ending or could have been a cover for saying "this script sucks" She may have said that on James Lipton's show, i can't remember.

The fact that she wasn't it was enough to think it would suck.
I didn't think it was awful but it wasn't even in the same league as the others.

1. Silence of the Lambs
2. Manhunter
3. Red Dragon

all very good, SOTL is a classic obviously, Manhunter was incredible and Red Dragon was a nice remake that payed more respect to the book, with great performances as well.

Hannibal could have been much much much better.
Add Jodie as Clarice, a different director, some script tweaking and it could have been pretty damn good.

As a huge Harris/Lecter fan, this new movie doesn't interest me one bit.
