Now everyone who has read Dan Brown's classic thriller The Da Vinci Code knows that there is another Robert Langdon movie on the way. But some people may have been a bit disappointed with how the order of the films turned out.

The first film in the Dan Brown based book-to-film series was 2006's The Da Vinci Code. Though it was met with negative critic results and was protested several times, the film was a box office success. The second film was his first Robert Langdon novel Angels and Demons which in book terms took place before the events of The Da Vinci Code. In movie terms, Angels and Demons takes place after the events of said movie. This may be a bit confusing. And it even confuses me. Since I have read these books a few times.

But now the third installment in this series is not what you may think it is. The third film here will be based on Dan Brown's fourth novel Inferno instead of the third The Lost Symbol. It was originally supposed to be a film with director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer to return for the director and producer's chair. But in July 2013, the team at Sony Pictures decided that they would adapt Inferno instead.

Inferno is currently at this very moment in post production since filming wrapped up on July 21st. The film is directed and produced by Howard and Grazer who directed/produced How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Apollo 13 and A Beautiful Mind. Tom Hanks will reprise his role as Robert Langdon along with new cast members Felicity Jones as Dr. Sienna Brooks, Omar Sy as Christopher Bruder, Ben Foster as the novel's main villain Bertrand Zobrist and Irrfan Khan as The Provost.
