Head + Genitals Go Missing On Hannibal Rising Set
HANNIBAL RISING director PETER WEBBER is keeping a close eye on Internet auction site eBay because he's sure that's where stolen items from his new movie will show up.
A severed rubber head and penis went missing from the set of the SILENCE OF THE LAMBS prequel and Webber is convinced they'll be auctioned off in cyberspace.
He says, "There's a character called DORTLICH (RICHARD BLAKE), whose head is severed during the course of the movie, and that head was stolen by someone.
"There's also a scene with a body that HANNIBAL LECTER (GASPARD ULLIEL) is working on in one scene; it's a full-size replica human body, including the genitals.
"Somebody stole the genitals. They actually cut them off and took them away.
"So someone has got a large rubber penis and a rubber head at home and I don't know what they're doing with it. I think it'll end up on eBay."
