"The Lost Symbol" screenwriter visits Smithsonian to research upcoming movie.

Tom Hanks and Ayelet Zurer in "Angels & Demons."

Get ready for your close-up, Smithsonian. The institution recently played host to Steven Knight, the British screenwriter who has been tasked with adapting Dan Brown's latest bestseller, "The Lost Symbol," for the big screen. Knight retraced some of Brown's steps in researching the D.C.-based thriller, including a trip to the museum's support center in Suitland -- home of the preserved giant squid that plays a lurid role. Too soon to say if the "Da Vinci Code" sequel, set for a 2012 release, will be filmed here.
