After months of delays and millions of dollars, the follow-up to 2006’ box office success The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, is finally moving forward.The films, both directed by Ron Howard, are also both written by Akiva Goldsman.Due to the strike of the Writers Guild of America, Goldsman was unable to work on her script during late 2007, causing Pinewood Shepperton Studios delays (imdb.com).The postponement of the project has caused the film to now be reaching for a summer 2009 release date, May 15th.

Based on the novels by Dan Brown, both The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons were New York Times best-sellers.Widely controversially yet thoroughly researched, his books soon became hot topics of interest.Angels & Demons is a prequel to The Da Vinci Code, bringing Landon on another adventure in Italy.Langdon must discover the truth about a secret society: the Illuminati, gruesome murders, and stop a powerful weapon of mass destruction.

Angels & Demons marks the fourth time actor Tom Hanks and director Ron Howard have collaborated on a film (Splash, Apollo 13, The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons).Also set to star in the film are Ewan McGregor as Carlo Ventresca, camerlengo to the church (Trainspotting, The Island), and Israelian beauty Ayelet Zurer as Vittoria Vetra (Munich, Vantage Point), brilliant physicist and Langdon’s love interest.

From the new set photos, Angels & Demons is looking to be just as exciting and beautiful as its predecessor.The locations chosen in Rome are bellissimo.I’m a huge fan of The Da Vinci Code, and I’m expecting big things for the sequel this time next year.
