Westminster Abbey was right to reject Hollywood's 30 pieces of silverBreaking News
Luckily for the film-makers, the Dean of Lincoln, the Very Reverend Alec Knight, is not so fussy. He agrees that the book is "a load of old tosh". But as soon as the team offered £100,000 to the cathedral if he would let them film, he gave in. "It will bring Lincoln and Lincolnshire more into focus," he says, "It is a huge opportunity in secular terms." A solitary nun mounted a prayer vigil at the cathedral doors in protest, but the Very Reverend was nothing daunted, happy in his Anglican illusion that £100,000 is a lot of money to extract from Hollywood.
