Tom Hanks is soon to reprise the role of Robert Langdon, the Harvard symbologist and main character of Dan Brown's series of bestselling novels, for Inferno.
To be directed by Ron Howard (The Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons), the movie has been given a tentative release date of December 18, 2015.
Inferno sold nearly a quarter of a million copies in its first week of release and follows Langdon as he battles to save the world from an imminent plague. Here's the official synopsis:
In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces... Dante’s Inferno.
Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust... before the world is irrevocably altered.
David Koepp is writing Inferno's script while Brian Grazer is co-producing with Howard. Still no word on The Lost Symbol, however. Although that story comes before Inferno in Dan Brown's massively popular book series, there are currently no known plans to adapt it for the big screen.
Still, I'm more than happy to skip straight to Hanks in Italy, grappling with amnesia and a chilling puzzle revolving around Dante's Inferno...
Do you think Inferno will make for a good movie?
