Here is our first look at the new Dan Brown flick come to life, “Angels & Demons.” I can’t wait to see this!

The Vatican banned the makers of the prequel to The Da Vinci Code entitled, “Angels & Demons” from filming in its grounds or any church in Rome, describing the work as as ‘an offense against God’. The movie based on Dan Brown’s thriller, includes key parts that take place in the Vatican and other churches in Rome – Santa Maria del Popolo and Santa Maria della Vittoria.
Father Marco Fibbi, a spokesman for the Diocese of Rome, said: “Normally we read the script but this time it was not necessary. The name Dan Brown was enough.”
So the film crew was able to get shots of the outside of the Vatican and are currently building a replica of St. Peters Square in Los Angeles to finish the filming. Personally I hope “Angels & Demons” will be better than the film version of “The Da Vinci Code.” I don’t think it did the book justice.
