First Look: Angels and Demons
Here’s your first look at Angels and Demons, the sequel to the critically acclaimed The Da Vinci Code, which was adapted for the best-selling novel from author Dan Brown. Produced by Brian Grazer, who served as executive producer of the current season of 24, the film is sure to raise some eyebrows in the Catholic community, with its bold assertions that a centuries-long cover up is upholding traditional beliefs.
When director Ron Howard asked permission to shoot in a church in Rome during production last year, a Vatican spokesman had the following to say: “Usually we read the script but in this case it wasn’t necessary. Just the name Dan Brown was enough,” Marco Fibbi said. “Angels and Demons peddles a type of fantasy that damages our common religious beliefs, just like The Da Vinci Code did.”
The U.S. release date for the film is May 15, 2009.
