Angels & Demons Movie To Be Made

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.

    Is the Da Vinci Code banned in Tunisia?

    Nope, it’s not banned. The book is available in French and Arabic in almost every bookshop.
    But we’re cursed with bad cinemas with old movies, so I’ll only get to see the movie when it’s out on DVD, and that would be months before the first Tunisian cinema shows it :P

    “despite poor reviews and controversy over its religious subject.”

    I say: *because of* controversy over its religious subject.

    Films -and discourse in general- on religious issues have always been catchy and seductive even for non pious people or atheists, let alone believers…

    As for the bad reviews, well, I heard them too, but still I feel a bit itchy about seeing it.
