'Da Vinci Code' Prequel Hit by Strike

The Da Vinci Code prequel Angels & Demons has become the first big screen casualty of the Hollywood writer's strike. Executives at Columbia Pictures have postponed production on the Ron Howard film as the strike begins a third week.

Sources claim Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman's script still needs work, and he is on strike with his Writers Guild of America brethren. The film bosses have also put the film's release date back from the end of 2008 to 2009.
