IGN FilmForce is sharing a particularly juicy piece of unsubstantiated movie gossip that indicates … Steven Spielberg might be interested in directing Robert Langdon’s pre-"Da Vinci" adventure, "Angels & Demons."

Says IGNFF: "In a report attributed to Sky News, the rumor mill is suggesting that Oscar winner Steven Spielberg is being considered by Sony to direct Angels & Demons, based on the novel by Da Vinci Code author Dan Brown.

The Spielberg rumor, though, dates back to February. Spielberg Films wisely pointed out at that time "the fact that DreamWorks is now owned by Paramount and Steven Spielberg is contractually obligated to deliver four to six pictures as director/producer for the parent studio. Spielberg, as always, will continue to play as a free agent, but any projects he collaborates on with other studios will be co-productions with Paramount."
