Sony follows up 'Da Vinci' with 'Angels'

Striking while the iron is sizzling, Sony has signed “The Da Vinci Code” scribe Akiva Goldsman to adapt author Dan Brown’s first religious thriller, “Angels & Demons.”

“Code” grossed $231.8 million worldwide in its first five days.

Though development of “Angels & Demons” is still in the early stages, the studio’s also planning to reassemble “The Da Vinci Code” producing team of Brian Grazer and John Calley for the project.

No deals are set yet for director Ron Howard or star Tom Hanks to return, but both would have first crack at the project.

“Code” was Brown’s second novel centering on Robert Langdon, a Harvard professor who’s an expert in religious symbols. “Angels & Demons,” published in 2000, introduced the Langdon character. When “Code” subsequently became a worldwide publishing sensation, “Angels” also became a bestseller.

In “Angels,” Langdon’s character tries to solve a murder and unravel a plot by an ancient group, the Illuminati, to blow up the Vatican during a papal conclave.

Sony acquired the feature rights to “Angels” as part of its 2003 deal with Brown for “The Da Vinci Code.”
