    'Angels & Demons' 2008

    'Angels & Demons' looks to be on the Sony production schedule, today they sent out the following information on promotional opportunities:

    ANGELS & DEMONS

    Type of Opportunity: Theatrical

    Dan Brown’s first best-selling thriller will be adapted for the big screen in a prequel penned by Oscar winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman.

Its premise centers around another murder investigation that leads Langdon on a quest to thwart a plot to blow up the Vatican during a papal conclave.

    I loved this book so much more than the DaVinci Code - but, if I have to see Tom Hanks and that hair again....

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Hanks, Howard circle prequel to 'Da Vinci'

    By Tatiana Siegel

    April 12, 2007

    Columbia Pictures has moved one step closer to reuniting "The Da Vinci Code" team of star Tom Hanks and director Ron Howard.

    Sources close to the project say that Hanks and Howard are in final negotiations to return for "Da Vinci" prequel "Angels & Demons."

    Internet rumors have been swirling that Hanks is about to receive Hollywood's biggest payday ever to reprise his role as Harvard professor Robert Langdon.

    Sony declined comment about the status of the highly anticipated project, which also derives from a Dan Brown best-seller.

    But sources say the studio, which benefited from "Da Vinci's" $758 million worldwide boxoffice haul, has set an early January start date and has hired A-list casting directors Jane Jenkins and Debbie McWilliams to fill out the thriller's supporting roles.

    Sources say the studio also is waiting for Akiva Goldsman to finish his adapted screenplay, which centers on Langdon, who becomes embroiled in murders involving the Illuminati and the Vatican.

    I did like this book better than Da Vinci Code, but Tom Hanks and his hair ruined the entire franchise for me and I for sure won't be seeing the movie.

    Aw I loved Tom Hanks and his hair didn't bother me, I hope he's in it.. I hate when different people play the same character.

    I might go and see this. Like quite a few of you, I loved this book more than the Davinci code. Never got around to seeing the movie, though, so I don't know about Tom Hanks and his hair... (let me know if that's a good thing)

    I didn't see the Da Vinci Code, but have read both books (I also liked Angels & Demons better), and Tom Hanks is definitely not who I pictured playing the lead role.
