Mr.Dan BrownThe thriller by Mr.Dan Brown has sold 17 million copies worldwide. The chapel saw a huge surge in visitor numbers after the plot suggested the 15th century chapel was built to house 'The Holy Grail'. Mr.Stewart Beattie, of 'The Rosslyn Trust', said he was confident the trustees would feel the film was value for money. It was expected location fees alone would generate 100_000_GBP. However, Mr.Andrew Sinclair, a descendent of the family that founded the chapel, claimed filming would ruin the chapel's reputation. He also said it would lead people to believe the 'preposterous' claims made in the book. The da Vinci Code 'Hollywood movie role for chapel', BBC NEWS, 2005/07/25 22:03:34 GMT
