"Da Vinci Code" to be filmed at the LOUVRE
Scenes for the bestselling novel "The Da Vinci Code" are to be shot on location at the Louvre, the famed museum in Paris. Filming is expected to start in June with Oscar-winner Ron Howard directing. Tom Hanks, also an Oscar winner will play Robert Langdon, a symbologist in a race to solve the murder of an elderly member of an ancient society that has protected dark secrets since the early years of Christianity. "The Da Vinci Code" is a mix of code breaking, art history, secret societies, religion and lore. Several other books question its contentious allegations--including that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and sired a bloodline.
