Not sure what is going on in the photo above, but your brain should tell you that it’s a photo of Ayelet Zurer, and according to EW she’s landed the lead female role opposite Tom Hanks in Ron Howard‘s summer ’09 prequel to The Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons. Yes, the prequel people are craving as much as one to Nothing But Trouble is quietly moving forward. Will Tom Hanks’s hair go even longer this time and catch a nice Fabio-esque breeze on screen? Maybe.
Zurer, an Israeli actress who starred as Eric Bana’s comely wife in Steven Spielberg’s underrated Munich, apparently beat out Naomi Watts for the role of Vittoria Vetra (Dan Brown‘s alliteration, blech), who teams with Hanks’s “Harvard symbologist” Robert Langdon to solve the mystery behind her father’s death. Enter terrorists, churches, chubby moms flipping through supermarket paperbacks et al. After hitting a snag due to the writers strike the picture is scheduled to begin filming this June in Europe. Give a low five in the comments.
