Filming is well under-way on The Da Vinci Code follow-up, Angels & Demons - the movie that will see Tom Hanks make well over $20 million for a few months work in reprising one of his most under realised characters in his filmography.

Hey Tom got a haircut. The mullet piece doesn't look so bad this time around...


Ron Howard returns to the directing chair, hoping that this follow-up can drum up the same kind of interest that earned Da Vinci over $700 million worldwide. The first image above shows Israeli actress Ayelet Zurer as Vittoria Vetra, the Italian love interest of the movie. No sign just yet of Ewan McGregor, who plays the powerful Vatican insider who assists Langdon in his struggle against a powerful group who have vowed to blow up the sovereign state. Personally, I didn't hate the original. It was exactly like the novel, a bit of light fast food entertainment which you can quickly devour but is never all that satisfying. I'm not quite sure what people were expecting because they got the novel, it wasn't something radically different on screen. For me, they are just slightly a notch above the National Treasure movies and I know I will have a good time with them. Look for this one in 2009. source - coming soon, thebadandugly
