Tom Hanks and Ron Howard are in final negotiations with Sony Pictures to return for “The Da Vinci Code” prequel “Angels & Demons” says The Hollywood Reporter.
Net rumours emerged earlier this week that Hanks had already signed for the biggest payday ever for an actor to reprise his role as Harvard professor Robert Langdon.
Sony declined to comment about the status of the project, and whilst it seems the pair haven’t been locked yet – the payday talk may hold weight.
An early January start date is already tipped, whilst casting directors are already at work locking in supporting roles. most are now waiting for Akiva Goldsman to finish his adapted screenplay.
