David Slade, director of 30 Days of Night, has signed on to direct the pilot episode of the new NBC show "Hannibal," featuring the classic characters from Thomas Harris' series of novels that began with Red Dragon, according to Deadline.

This would be Slade's second time in the director's chair for NBC, having directed the pilot for the drama "Awake" last season. Slade's other directing gigs included Hard Candy, starring Ellen Page, and the third installment The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

As was mentioned last week, actor Hugh Dancy has been cast as FBI agent Will Graham for the new show being prepped for the fall season.
