Ewan is in negotiations with Sony Pictures to play in the prequel to The DaVinci Code, Angels and Demons. The role is that of Camerlengo Carlo Ventresca, the Pope’s closest aide, who helps Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) with his investigation.Angels and Demons will be directed by Ron Howard and they hope to start filming in June. The release date was delayed due to the Writers Strike. Hopefully the movie should be out by May 2009.In the meantime, you guys should read the book. Its not as good as The DaVinci Code (the book not the movie) but well worth the read.
Here is a video of Ewan on Ellen.
