Newsweek Talks DaVinci Code!

An extensive report with Newsweek about next year's biggest film - the adaptation of Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code" - has gone online with new photos and some new revealtions.

It seems contrary to earlier reports that Sony planned to soften the story's more controversial elements, Director Ron Howard says there will be "no placating. It would be ludicrous to take on this subject and then try to take the edges off. We're doing this movie because we like the book".

Using the Louvre proved difficult at times - ""We had to be very specific about every single shot we were going to do, for both security and preservation reasons. There were all kinds of things we couldn't do. Blood on the floor—that's in the script and we couldn't do that. We couldn't take paintings off the walls, obviously. We couldn't write coded messages on the Mona Lisa, obviously". Thus whilst much of the Grand Gallery shooting is real, other things like the Mona Lisa are entirely replicas. [More]
