Vin Diesel's "Hannibal" Moving Forward?

Every filmmaker and many actors have a long-term dream project. For over a decade actor Vin Diesel has been pursuing his - a biopic of Hannibal the Conqueror with himself directing and/or playing the legendary Carthaginian military commander.

This past weekend, Diesel gave a quick but vague update on his Facebook page suggesting there's some movement on the project at last. Here's the full quote:

"When a dream is born in your childhood... When you spend a decade daring to pursue it... The day, a head of a studio says... "I want to make all three films of your Hannibal trilogy!" Haha... It takes a minute to sink in... Shhhhh... It's still sinking in.”

No further information was forthcoming, but it's at least a sign that one of history's most famous strategists and warriors may finally get a big screen outing that is long overdue.
