Joaquin Navarro Valls, former spokesperson under John Paul II, is finding success in Hollywood. In 2005 he worked in an Italian-American production on Karol Wojtyla. Five years later he invested in the film "There be Dragons.” It's a movie about the founder of Opus Dei. He says, even 'Dan Brown will appreciate it when he sees it.
"I think it's not a biography of St. Josemaria but a great story of human passions that underlines the issue of forgiveness."
In an interview with Zenit Agency, he said, although not intended, the film “is in fact a powerful answer to "The Da Vinci Code," because it expresses the truth about questions related to the Christian message and the Church, that were falsified in Dan Brown's story.”
He adds, the new film will help people discover “a more complete and more real picture of the supernatural themes of God's grace and holiness, which are the things to which every human being aspires.”
