Tom Hanks likely to star in The Da Vinci Code

Variety reports that it's all but a done deal that uber-mensch Tom Hanks will star in Ron Howard's upcoming film adaptation of Dan Brown's mega-best-selling thriller The Da Vinci Code. (Production is slated to begin next year for an '06 release.)

For the record, I still haven't read the book...but I did listen to the abridged audiobook version on the drive home from Bouchercon. It's an entertaining enough story, I suppose, although it hardly seemed hype-worthy.
