'Da Vinci' inspirations to appear in film

From Brown has rewarded two authors who helped to inspire his bestseller The Da Vinci Code. The novelist has allowed Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince, writers of 1997 book The Templar Revelation, to shoot a scene with Tom Hanks in the Da Vinci movie adaptation. Brown is currently in court defending allegations from two other authors that he lifted elements from 1982 book The Holy Blood And The Holy Grail. Lynn told the Sunday Mirror, "Dan admitted in court he got his 'big idea' after reading our book. It wasn't until the trial that we realised quite how much he'd used our work. He sorted it for us to be in the film, which was an honour. We sat behind Tom on a London bus."
