Already Plans for The Da Vinci Prequel

Well that was fast! Looks like Sony VP Jeff Blake wants to get back into business with novelist Dan Brown, and they’re looking to bring Robert Langdon’s pre-Da Vinci adventure, "Angels & Demons," to the silver screen. (As if this comes as a surprise to anyone.)

From The Times Online: "Sony Pictures, the studio behind "The Da Vinci Code," is hoping to bring another novel by Brown, "Angels and Demons," to the big screen, a senior executive told The Times yesterday.

Tom Hanks could return to star as the Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon, who appeared in the book and will be the hero of Brown’s next novel. Mr Blake said: “We are very interested in filming Angels and Demons. We hope that the relationship with Dan Brown will be a long one. That could be the next project.”

Angels and Demons was the reclusive author’s third novel after he gave up his job as an English teacher. It tells the story of Langdon’s brush with a shadowy secret society, the Illuminati, and his frantic quest for the world’s most powerful energy source, in the company of a beautiful Italian physicist whose father, a brilliant physicist, has been murdered."

…and somewhere Dan Brown is hastily cobbling some new Langdon adventures together.
