ANGELS & DEMONS First Pictures with Tom Hanks and Ewan McGregor
We finally get our first look at Ewan McGregor who plays Carlo Ventresca, the faithful servant to the church during the papal conclave in Vatican City, as well as Tom Hanks who once again plays Robert Langdon (same character as in The Da Vinci Code), a Harvard expert in religious symbols who this time discovers a conspiracy to destroy the Vatican.
According to the USA Today article:
Filmmakers had hoped to shoot Angels at the Vatican and inside Roman churches. But Brown’s Angels, which includes the murder of two cardinals, was quickly shut down by the church. “This movie was strangely harder to shoot than Da Vinci Code, even though there’s less controversy,” says producer Brian Grazer. Exteriors were shot quickly in Rome, and elaborate sets were built to replicate the Vatican and other churches at Los Angeles studios.
