Columbia must like what they're seeing with Angels and Demons, because even though the movie doesn't hit theaters for another month, the studio is jumping at the chance for a third film in the series.
With Dan Brown set to release his next installment in the "Da Vinci Code" series, "The Lost Symbol", on September 15th, Sony is getting a head start on negotiations for a third film - they own the rights to Tom Hanks' Robert Langdon character, which means they also get the first crack at any new Langdon-starring titles from Brown.
Sure, they could've waited until Angels and Demons opens, but after The Da Vinci Code took in $758 million worldwide in 2006, do you really blame them for wanting to lock The Lost Symbol up as soon as Brown typed "The End" on his manuscript? I sure don't.
