Vatican Says No To Brown Adaptations

A spokesman for the Vatican has acknowledged that it turned down a request to film parts of Angels and Demons, the prequel to The Da Vinci Code, at various locations within Vatican City without ever looking at the script. In an interview with the London Daily Telegraph, Father Marco Fibbi said, "Usually we read the script but in this case it wasn't necessary. Just the name Dan Brown was enough." Brown was the writer of the novels on which both The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons were based. "Angels and Demons peddles a type of fantasy that damages our common religious beliefs, just like The Da Vinci Code did," he added.
