In the Continuing Pursuit of Fake Truth
.. and then, sometimes I’m happy that Hollywood has steered clear of adult targeted films, particularly when those films are based on Dan Brown books. Not content to bore us to tears with revisionist fake history that was The Da Vinci Code, and now the upcoming Angels & Demons — which is a waste of a perfectly good Scottish boy (Ewan McGregor) — Columbia is already moving quickly on a third movie in the franchise.
The next film will be titled, The Lost Symbol and it’s based on an as-yet released Dan Brown book of the same name. The novel won’t be published until September 15th (damn, and here I lost my calendar, so I’ll be unable to mark that down), but Brown has already completed the manuscript for the film.
Except that the entire story takes place in a 12-hour period, no plot details have been released, and I’m not even sure if Tom Hanks is signed on (though, I’m sure he is). It will probably be based on a bullshit conspiracy theory. In fact, here’s hoping that the next Dan Brown movie can be a crossover with the National Treasure franchise. Tom Hanks’ and Nicolas Cages’ bad hair in one movie! It’d be like Christmas at rattyfuckinghair.com.
