If you know anything about Tom Hanks as Robert Langdon, you know there is always another Da Vinci for him to decode or another Illuminati to stop, so, no surprise, Columbia Pictures is all prepared to capture his next Church-denounced adventure on film:
While Columbia Pictures is prepping for the May 15 release of Ron Howard’s Tom Hanks starrer "Angels and Demons," the studio will move quickly on the third pic in the franchise.
Author Dan Brown has announced that his next installment in the "Da Vinci Code" series will be "The Lost Symbol," which Doubleday will publish in the U.S. and Canada on Sept. 15.
Sources said Brown has completed his manuscript. Sony has the rights to the Robert Langdon character, which gives the studio the right to negotiate a deal for the new title.
Can we get a return of the Da Vinci Haircut in this one? I'd be much more likely to pay to watch Tom Hanks chase down a lost symbol if he had that little cape of hair flapping against his skull again.
