Sony Gets Interested In “Angelology”

Sony Pictures has scored the film rights to Danielle Trussoni’s ‘Da Vinci Code-esque’ first novel “Angelology” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Will Smith’s Overbrook and Marc Forster’s Apparatus production companies will produce the story of a nun in New York who unwittingly reignites an ancient war between Angelologists, a group who studies angels, and a race of monster-like descendants of angels and humans called the Nephilim.

Fusing Biblical lore, the Orpheus myth, and the fall of rebel angels – the property sparked a fierce bidding war between Sony, Warners and Universal for the rights to make the project.
