The diocese of Rome has banned filming in its churches of the prequel to the Da Vinci Code, a popular book and film that has angered many Catholics.
Producers of Angels and Demons were turned down because the film "does not conform to our views", a spokesman for diocese told AP news agency.
The Da Vinci Code in 2006 was based on the idea that Jesus Christ married Mary Magdalene and had children.
It also depicted a conservative Catholic movement as a murderous cult.
Christians are taught that Jesus never married, was crucified and rose from the dead.
