He points to the page, and it reveals words being erased and re-written with Dan talking to Langdon. LT. COLLET Dan Brown is not supposed to be in his book. FACHE But the novel is giving him a lead role. 24. INT. BOOKSTORE Dan runs to a shelf in the bookstore where copies of the Da Vinci Code are being kept. He grabs one and show it to Langdon. ROBERT LANGDON Whoa. You were telling the truth. DAN BROWN This book made quite the controversy. ROBERT LANGDON Why? DAN BROWN Well, it was about the Priory. And the grail. ROBERT LANGDON Well what happened? DAN BROWN The Catholic church went so nuts with it they started publishing books called Disproving the Da Vinci Code, like everything I said was true. I mean, I was just trying to write a novel. ROBERT LANGDON But isn't it real? DAN BROWN No, the whole true grail story was just an idea that came to me, and I said, hey! Why don't I write a book about that? ROBERT LANGDON So then-. DAN BROWN Yes. Everything that you've been trying to explain to Sophie in the past few hours doesn't exist in the real world. Yet there's so many who refuse to believe it. I mean, I'm a Christian, and it's hard for me to go to church now, without people saying things. 25. INT. TAXI CAB Sophie, in the taxi turns to the hostage driver in the backseat. SOPHIE NEVEU Do you have a radio in this? The driver nods slowly. SOPHIE NEVEU Good. She turns to turn the radio on. As she flips through channels, she nods her head in like/dislike. Finally she hears a piano. ...read more.
