Ron Howard and Tom Hanks have balls. After the excoriation given them by the Catholic church for their movie The Da Vinci Code they went back to Rome and asked to film the prequel in Santa Maria del Popolo and Santa Maria della Vittoria. The Catholic church said no, though they are allowed to film exteriors.
I'd like to write the sequel to The Da Vinci Code, and here's what happens. Yes, Jesus marries Mary Magdalene and they have a couple of kids. But then Mags gets sick of Jesus' messiah complex and takes the kids and moves to France. She dumps his ass. In an I'll-show-her display Jesus gets himself arrested and crucified. What begins as an episode of Jerry Springer ends up as a major world religion. Damn, someone already made the porn version - The Da Vinci Coed.
