No deals are set yet for director Ron Howard or star Tom Hanks to return, but both would have a first look at the project.

The Da Vinci Code was Brown's second novel centering on Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks character), a Harvard professor who's an expert in religious symbols. Angels & Demons, published in 2000, introduced the Langdon character.

In Angels & Demons, Langdon's character tries to solve a murder and unravel a plot by an ancient group, the Illuminati, to blow up the Vatican during a papal conclave.
