Angels & Demons
If you have been sticking close to updates on The Da Vinci Code here at CanMag than you already know one of my major complaints against Sony -- Why did they not also create Angels & Demons at the same time and release that first (in order)? Both Dan Brown novels covering the adventures of Robert Langdon were bound to be box office gold and somehow Sony is is still relieved that Da Vinci Code made money.
Come on! The film had shit reviews and it still rocked the box office!
Anywho, now that Sony is sure that religion, puzzles, adventure and conspiracy make money, they are ready to move forward with Angels & Demons.
Angels & Demons is Next
According to Variety, Sony has signed The Da Vinci Code scribe Akiva Goldsman to adapt author Dan Brown's first religious thriller, Angels & Demons. Considering that the Code was able to take in over $200 million in its first five days, the move to go forward by Sony with the adaptation was a no-brainer.
Sony, who still looks like they don't want to take any chances, is hoping to reassemble The Da Vinci Code producing team of Brian Grazer and John Calley for the project.
Dan Brown's Angels & Demons is the first book that introduces symbologist Robert Langdon. 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.
I will still argue that Angels & Demons is the better book.
Stay tuned for updates.
