Reno to investigate The Da Vinci Code



Story by: Jack Foley

LEON star, Jean Reno, has landed a prominent role in The Da Vinci Code, alongside Tom Hanks.

The French actor appears to have been perfectly cast as ruthless police detective, Bezu Fache, who determines to pin a murder on Hanks' scholarly investigator, Robert Langdon, to set things in motion.

Reno's presence serves to make Ron Howard's film an even more mouth-watering possibility, given the actor's laidback flare for delivering cool characters.

 

Although another of the book's pivotal roles - that of female cryptologist, Sophie Neveu - has yet to be cast.

The book, by Dan Brown, follows Harvard symbologist and conspiracy unraveller, Professor Robert Langdon, as he is called to the scene of a brutal murder at the Louvre, in Paris.

The victim is a curator, yet his death begins an investigation into one of the most intriguing mysteries of all-time, in the form of the legend of the Holy Grail and the true history of Jesus Christ.

The Da Vinci Code represents Brown's follow-up to Langdon's first novel, Angels & Demons, which also became a best-seller - helping the author to become one of Hollywood's hottest properties.

The film is being prepared in time for a possible 2006 release.
