With “Angels and Demons” fast approaching to hit theaters everywhere May 15th, Columbia pictures already greenlighted a 3rd movie to the Da Vinci Code trilogy. The next one is titled, “The Lost Symbol” adapted from the Dan Brown novel which is set to hit bookstores, Sept. 15th.
The third book, “The Lost Symbol” is still based on Robert Langdon adventures, the story taken place after, “The Da Vinci Code”. “Angels and Demons” is a prequel which means it’s taken place before.
I can’t wait to see “Angels and Demons” film in May which I will see. I loved the book and will see the movie too. Yes, I’m pretty sure Ron Howard and Tom Hanks will return again for the “The Lost Symbol” film as well although this article doesn’t confirm them in returning. I’m also looking forward to picking up, “The Lost Symbol”, novel as I’m a huge Dan Brown fan.
The Ron Howard and Tom Hanks movie “Angels and Demons” which is a prequel to the movie “The Da Vinci Code” based upon the books by Dan Brown, the teaser trailer to the prequel is now online finally.
The film looks great!
See the trailer at the films official website here:
Remember this is NOT a sequel to “The Da Vinci Code”, this is a prequel which means the story happened before. Honestly, I thought “Angels and Demons” was a much better book than “The Da Vinci Code”.
Dan Brown did once announce that he is writing a sequel to “The Da Vinci Code” to complete the trilogy.
Ron Howard, Tom Hanks, Ewan McGregor, and the rest of the cast and crew filming the new “Angels and Demons” prequel has been banned from filming at the churches of Rome, it was outraged by the real life Vatican City. The cast and crew has been filming at real life historic places in Rome but they are not allowed to film at the churches there.
The reason is, in the book “The Da Vinci Code” had a story where Mary Magdalene married Jesus when in real life religious stories, Jesus was never married to Mary.
Hmmmm, more reasons to hate religious people. Rev. Marco Fibbi shouldn’t blame Ron Howard and Tom Hanks for this, that’s bullshit. They weren’t the one that came up with the idea of Mary being married Jesus. They should blame the writer of the book that came up with that phony story, Dan Brown. How come Hanks and Howard get the blame for this? They’re just going by the script and what’s in the novel. They should ban Dan Brown from the Churches of Rome, not the film crew. Damn that Marco Fibbi FOOL!
The former Star Wars star Ewan McGregor is in negotiations to play alongside Tom Hanks in “Angels and Demons” prequel. Ewan may play the character Camerlengo Carlo Ventresca, who is a pope from the novel.
Ewan McGregor has been an underrated actor for years but became a household star after playing Obi Won Kenobi in the three Star Wars prequels.
Dark Horizons reports:
Look like Ron Howard is in a hurry to get the casting done and bet he can’t wait to start filming!!! I can’t blame him since his project was interupted by the WGA writers strike.
An actress named Ayelet Zurer has been confirmed to play alongside Tom Hanks for the “Angels and Demons” prequel to “The Da Vinci Code”. Tom Hanks and Ron Howard are now finally back to work on “Angels and Demons” since the writers strike is officially over. She can be seen in other films such as “Vantage Point” and Steven Spielberg’s “Munich”. She is an actress from Israel.
Entertainment Weekly reports:
Glad the film is back on a roll! I enjoyed “Angels and Demons” way more than “The DaVinci Code” book. I expect “Angels and Demons” film to be at least three hours since the book is pretty thick.
