Just like I predicted and hoped for in my review of the book “Angels & Demons” by Dan Brown, author of “The Da Vinci Code”, the book is going to be made into a movie too, following the success of “The Da Vinci Code” movie in cinemas.
The Da Vinci Code movie took $224m around the world in its first weekend, despite poor reviews and controversy over its religious subject.
So now, Columbia Pictures, the studio behind the film, has ordered an adaptation of Angels and Demons.
Akiva Goldsman has been drafted in to write the script, having penned the screenplay for The Da Vinci Code. And a spokesman for Columbia said “The Da Vinci Code” director Ron Howard and Tom Hanks would be given first option to work on Angels and Demons.
I still haven’t seen “The Da Vinci Code” movie, and now, I have yet another movie, “Angels & demons”, to look forward to seeing.
