Ron Howard and the masterful Tom Hanks have already teamed up for two adaptations within Dan Brown's historical blended fiction and non-fiction series. The first film was "The Da Vinci Code", following that with "Angles and Demons". Now it's being reported that the same team is reuniting to bring a third book in the series "Inferno" to the big-screen.
Hanks will reprise his role as Robert Langdon, the brilliant Harvard Symbologist on a quest for truth and history. Howard is back in the director's chair, along with Brian Grazer, who will help produce the film with him. David Koepp is penning the script.
In "Inferno", Langdon awakens with amnesia in an Italian hospital. True to the usual form of the series, he teams up with a female counterpart. This time it's with Sienna Brooks, the doctor he hopes will help fill in some of the missing pieces for him before something terrible is put into motion that is connected to Dante's Inferno.
For the time being, they skipped over the book that followed "The Da Vinci Code", called "The Lost Symbol". They have actually gone out of sequence prior as "Angels and Demons" was the first book but was made into a movie second, as it wasn't as popular as the second book. If they are going out of sequence again and are jumping to the "Inferno" next, I wouldn't hold your breath that that book will ever be adapted. You never know, though.
Howard is coming off his wonderful car-racing film "Rush", which starred Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl. Tom Hanks, well, he's Tom Hanks. The actor can do anything and is as good as it gets.
