The Da Vinci Code star Tom Hanks and director Ron Howard are in final negotiations with Columbia Pictures to return for the prequel film Angels & Demons, sources told The Hollywood Reporter.
Yeah baby! OK, so let’s be honest here. [[The DaVinci Code]] was at best a servicable adaptation of a fun read. But when it came out, my only hope was that it would do well enough for them to decide that it was worth it to film [[Angels and Demons]] which I consider to be a far superior work. Let’s just hope that [[Tom Hanks]] can avoid sleep walking through the role the way he did in [[The DaVinci Code]], and that the script captures the essence of the book better as well.
