Tautou Said to Star in 'Da Vinci Code'

I still don't think Tom HAnks is the right actor to play Langdon. I was hoping more for someone a little younger, like Hugh Jackman or Clive Owen...


PARIS - Winsome French actress Audrey Tautou of "Amelie" fame has been chosen to play Tom Hanks (news)' partner in cracking "The Da Vinci Code" in the film adaptation of the best-selling novel, the newspaper Le Parisien reported Saturday.

According to the daily, Tautou is to play the role of Sophie Neveu, the investigator who helps Robert Langdon (Hanks), a symbologist, solve the murder of an elderly member of an ancient society that has protected dark secrets since the early years of Christianity.

Oscar-winning director Ron Howard opted for Tautou last week, then confirmed his decision in a Wednesday meeting with her in Paris, Le Parisien's cinema writer Alain Grasset reported without citing sources.

Several celebrity actresses, including Sophie Marceau, sought the role that was finally narrowed down to Tautou and Linda Hardy, a former Miss France, according to the article.

Tautou also starred in Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 2004 movie "A Very Long Engagement."

"The Da Vinci Code," by Dan Brown, is a mix of code-breaking, art history, secret societies, religion and lore. Filming of the mystical thriller is expected to start in June. Sony Pictures has said it plans to release the film May 19, 2006.

The famed Louvre Museum has agreed in principal to allow scenes to be shot there, Louvre director Henri Loyrette said Friday. It is the murder of a Louvre curator that triggers the search for the so-called Da Vinci code.

I'm at page 386: great book, great read and I recommend it to any skeptical christian. I have to say that I find the events as described in this book to be plausible.

Buy the book or watch the movie. Prepare to shake the foundation of your faith.

hey dunkmachine, religion will alway be a central part of our lives. People need to believe in something, it's in our nature. We are not prepared to believe that there is no afterlife, nirvana, reincarnation etc., even though that's probably the case. But still religions have helped form civilizations. European and AMerican were shaped by Christianity as has Confusuism, Shintoism & Buddhism shaped East Asia and so on. Now don't tell me that some of these religions like Chrisitianity have persecuted native americans. Native americans are from various tribes and they too were at each others throat. Ex: Sioux were massacring navajos.

How did the sioux, who lived in North Dakota and other great plains states, murder the Navajo, who lived in Arizona and New Mexico?

I was definitely thinking Monica Belluci for Sophie...she's too sexy for the overexposed Hanks.....

I'm so dissapointed that he has the role of Langdon..that almost ruins it for me!
