    Israeli actress Ayelet Zurer has nabbed the female lead opposite Tom Hanks in Columbia Pictures' "Da Vinci Code" prequel "Angels & Demons."

    Ewan McGregor is in talks to join the thriller, which is based on the Dan Brown best-seller.

    McGregor is set to take on the role of a powerful Vatican insider who assists Langdon.

    Story centers on religious art scholar Robert Langdon (Hanks), who once again finds himself entangled with powerful forces with ancient roots: the Illuminati -- the most powerful underground organization in history -- and the Catholic Church. Zurer will play Vittoria Vetra, an Italian scientist who joins forces with Langdon.

    Ron Howard is directing from an Akiva Goldsman script.

    Ugh. No more Tom Hanks. He and his grody hair ruined The Da Vinci Code for me. I was hoping someone else would get cast...but not if Ron Howard is directing.

    Anybody know when Dan Brown will be releasing the third Robert Langdon book? I thought it was supposed to be coming out sometime this year.

    Vatican bans 'Da Vinci' sequel

    'Angels' barred from churches

    By Nick Vivarelli

    June 16, 2008

    ROME — “Angels & Demons” has been prevented by the Vatican from shooting in Rome churches, a Vatican official confirmed on Monday, saying the “The Da Vinci Code” sequel is incompatible with religious sentiment.

    Sony’s Ron Howard-directed thriller toplining Tom hanks, which started rolling in Rome June 5, had last year requested permits from Rome authorities to shoot in the monumental church of Santa Maria del Popolo and the smaller Santa Maria della Vittoria, where key scenes in the eponymous Dan Brown bestseller are set.

    Under Italy’s treaty with the Vatican both the Italian government and the Vatican needed to grant the permits, and the Vatican balked.

    “We often provide our churches to productions whose purposes are compatible with religious sentiment,” said Father Marco Fibbi, a spokesman for the Rome diocese.

    “But not when the film pursues a type of fantasy that damages common religious sentiment, as in the case of ‘The Da Vinci Code,’ ” he added.

    The Roma and Lazio Film Commission, however, bent over backward for “Angels,” which in past weeks did shoot the exteriors of the two churches, and also of St. Peter’s and of Rome’s Pantheon.

    “Angels & Demons” production this week moves from Rome to the former Royal Palace at Caserta, near Naples, which will double for the Vatican’s interiors.

    I'm excited for this movie. Angels and Demons is much more exciting than DaVinci Code.
