By ON

Yesterday it was revealed that Israeli actress Ayelet Zurer had landed the female lead opposite Tom Hanks in Columbia Pictures’ “Da Vinci Code” prequel Angels & Demons. Now, we’ve learned that Ewan McGregor is in talks to join the film as well.

In the thriller, based on the Dan Brown best-seller, McGregor is set to take on the role of a powerful Vatican insider who assists Langdon.

The story centers on religious art scholar Robert Langdon (Hanks), who once again finds himself entangled with powerful forces with ancient roots: the Illuminati — the most powerful underground organization in history — and the Catholic Church.

Ron Howard is directing from an Akiva Goldsman script.
