Goldsman Signs On for "Angels & Demons"

by | May 23, 2006 | Comments

Yesterday we shared the news that the "Da Vinci Code" prequel was being discussed, and today comes word that screenwriter Akiva Goldsman will definitely be returning. (We can only hope he read some of the "Da Vinci" reviews.) No word yet on Ron Howard or Tom Hanks, but you just know they’ll be back. Well, Hanks, anyway.

From Variety: "Striking while the iron is sizzling, Sony has signed "The Da Vinci Code" scribe Akiva Goldsman to adapt author Dan Brown‘s first religious thriller, "Angels & Demons." "Code" grossed $231.8 million worldwide in its first five days.

In "Angels," Langdon’s character tries to solve a murder and unravel a plot by an ancient group, the Illuminati, to blow up the Vatican during a papal conclave. Sony acquired the feature rights to "Angels" as part of its 2003 deal with Brown for "The Da Vinci Code."

Akiva Goldsman’s earlier screenplays include "A Time to Kill," "Batman & Robin," "Lost in Space," "A Beautiful Mind," and "Cinderella Man."
