Rome snubs ‘Da Vinci Code’ prequel

The Catholic church has finally got one back against Dan Brown, the bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code, by banning the use of Rome's churches for the filming of the follow-up.

Filming of Angels & Demons, starring Tom Hanks, has been under way this month in the Italian capital, but requests to shoot scenes in two churches, Santa Maria del Popolo and Santa Maria della Vittoria, were turned down by the diocese of Rome. Senior Catholics were infuriated by The Da Vinci Code, which suggests Jesus fathered a child with Mary Magdalene and that the Opus Dei Catholic sect is not above the odd murder.
