    Dan Brown To Rewrite Adaptation Of His Own Book 'The Lost Symbol'

    Presumably The Original Draft Wasn't Idiotic Enough Never underestimate the appetites of the general public for badly written, dull mystery movies: despite the disappointing US gross of Sony's "Angels & Demons," the film made close to half a billion dollars worldwide, continuing the success that the...
