Director Ron Howard and Tom Hanks are in final negotiations to reunite for a prequel to "The Da Vinci Code," according to Reuters.
Sony Pictures will start up "Angels and Demons" in January, and top notch casting directors have been hired to fill out supporting roles. "The Da Vinci Code" was the second highest grossing movie of 2006- bringing in $758 million worldwide.
Sources also said Sony is waiting for Akiva Goldsman to finish his adaptation of Dan Brown's best-seller, in which Hanks' character, Harvard professor Robert Langdon, becomes embroiled in murders involving the Illuminati and the Vatican.
