[Movie] Angels and Demons

News taken from theForce.net


Ewan just can't stay away from prequels! Dark Horizons and Variety are reporting that Ewan McGregor is in talks to join the cast of the Dan Brown film adaptation of Angels & Demons. A&D is the prequel to the widely successful and controversial novel, The Da Vinci Code. The film will be directed by Ron Howard.


From Dark Horizons:


"Based on the Dan Brown novel, "Angels" sees Hanks reprising his role as symbologist professor Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) who tries to solve a murder and unravel a plot by the most powerful underground organization in history, the Illuminati, to wipe out Vatican City in a massive explosion during a papal conclave.


McGregor will play Camerlengo Carlo Ventresca, also known as Janus, the late pope's closest aide who initially helps Langdon in the investigation. During a conclave (which can go for hours or days), the camerlengo is a young impartial priest who serves as the 'defacto pope' whilst the cardinals are locked in St. Peter's Basilica to decide the next Pope."

I actually enjoyed A&D more than The DaVinci Code, so I'm pretty excited about this one. Although, while TDVC was good, it did demonstrate that Dan Brown's books are difficult to replicate on screen. The fun of reading them is trying to follow along as Langdon unravels the clues to the mystery. Tough to do in a <2hr film.
