Tell me… Is this where the weed at, Your Holiness?

The Da Vinci Code sucked and Angels & Demons doesn’t look any better, but that didn’t stop Columbia from greenlighting a sequel as soon as the ink was dry on Dan Brown’s latest manuscript.  With any luck, there’s still time to convince Ron Howard to cut the translucent fuzz on top of his head before the next press tour. (*dry heave*)

Dan Brown has announced that his next installment of the “Da Vinci Code” series is “The Lost Symbol,” which will be published in the U.S. and Canada by Doubleday on September 15, 2009. The first print run will be a whopping 5 million copies.  “This is a great day for readers and booksellers,” said Sonny Mehta, chairman/editor in chief of the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group.

It is not a bad day for Columbia Pictures, either, which has another continuing global franchise to go along with “Spider-Man.” [Variety]

Yes, come to think of it, the Dan Brown trilogy is just like Spider-Man. Seems like every Halloween, more and more kids come to my door dressed in Tom Hanks wigs and plastic foreheads.  They love that biblical shit.
