Ron Howard Prepares to Unleash Angels & Demons

Filmmakers scramble to get script in place pre-strike.

One of the many high-profile productions being affected by the looming writers’ strike is Angels & Demons, the follow-up to The Da Vinci Code — but if director Ron Howard and his fellow filmmakers have anything to say about it, their sequel’s progress will be unimpeded.

Variety reports on the last-minute preparations behind the scenes of Angels & Demons, which will find Tom Hanks reprising his role as Robert Langdon from The Da Vinci Code, the $758 million-grossing adaptation of Dan Brown‘s bestselling book. Angels is scheduled to start filming in Europe next February, but with the writers’ strike coming as early as November 1, Howard’s team has to move quickly. From the article:

Producers Brian Grazer and John Calley, Columbia, Howard and writer Akiva Goldsman are seeking to finalize the shooting script before next week’s deadline. Meanwhile, the “Angels” team have begun casting around Tom Hanks, who will reprise his role as Robert Langdon.

Hanks’ character, a Harvard-based expert on religious symbols, this time sleuths a mystery that involves a secret society and a conspiracy that leads to Vatican City and threatens the future of the Catholic Church.

Variety‘s report goes on to note that, although the Angels & Demons novel was written before — and takes place before — The Da Vinci Code, the film will be a sequel.
