Dan Brown, You're Done?!

Entertainment Tonight interviewed Ron Howard, director of the The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, who stated that Dan Brown has officially finished his book, tentatively entitled, The Solomon Key. Now it has to be remembered that this is hearsay and we really have no matter of fact evidence including any word from Dan Brown or his publisher, Doubleday.

Speculation for release dates include June 24th, St. John's Day, or September 18th, the date the cornerstone of the US Capitol was laid. Whatever date it comes out, I hope we will be able to brace for the public excitement or scrutiny of the Fraternity. I can't imagine how crowded the West Gate will be and if we will be able to maintain the interest of the qualified candidates with Masonic education opportunities. We will see.

This new movie coming out is going to ruin the series. I feel like the reviews are going to tank... for the book and the movie.

Here is my theory of why it took 3 years extra to finish the book: after the lawsuit involving intellectual property, I think Dan Brown became very aware of the possibility that he may be sued again and worked out a deal with the author of the book that plays a central role in "the Solomon Key." Now the question for me is who is this central author: Gardner, Robinson, Lomas, Knight, Elias, etc. I am curious to see who it turns out to be.
