Diesel to make Hannibal films?

Vin Diesel has hinted that his Hannibal movies might be getting the green light.

The Fast And The Furious star has long wanted to make a trio of films about Hannibal of Carthage, a general during the Roman Empire.

And he has now posted a message on his Facebook page suggesting he is about to realise his dream.

The 45-year-old wrote: "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!'."

It's thought Vin is hoping to both star in and direct the movies.
