Tom Hanks has landed the lead role in the eagerly anticipated movie, The Da Vinci Code. Tom had to beat off stiff competition from the likes of Russell Crowe and George Clooney to play Robert Langdon in the film, which will be directed by Happy Days actor Ron Howard.
The search is now on for an actress suitable to play cryptologist Sophie Neveu, with Audrey Tatou and Virginie Ledoyen leading the field of favourites. Filming will start in Paris next spring, before moving on to London and Scotland.
I think Tom Hanks will be excellent for this role.
