Interesting bit of casting news: is reporting that Audrey Tatou, of Amelie fame, is slated to appear as Sophie Neveu in the upcoming adaptation of The Da Vinci Code, starring Tom Hanks. Also, Jean Reno is to appear as Inspector Bezu Fache.

The book was pretty good, although it's pretty clear, having read a few of Dan Brown's books, that he is a one-trick pony - see, for example, the first few chapters of both Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, where nearly the exact same thing happens. I'm wary of Ron Howard - he's responsible for both Arrested Development and How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Tom Hanks - well, whatever, I like him. But let's just have props for the casting director to get both Jean Reno and Audrey Tatou involved.
