Adding to the casting news for Angels & Demons is Ewan McGregor who has been cast as Camerlengo Carlo Ventresca, according to Reuters. This news follows yesterday’s news that Ayelet Zurer was cast as Vittoria Vetra (although we’re still not sure what happened to the news that Naomi Watts had been cast in the same role).
Tom Hanks may have his leading lady for the upcoming Angels & Demons (the prequel to The Da Vinci Code).
Empire Online reports that Ayelet Zurer (Munich) will play Vittoria Vetra, the daughter of a slain physicist. However, IMDb says the part is going to be played by Naomi Watts, which appears to have been in place since November of ’07. Did the part get recast, or was Naomi Watts never part of it? Or are both ladies in the film, playing different parts?
