Tom Hanks & Ron Howard will Finally Start Shooting INFERNO

Howard-Hanks-Robert-Langdon-Adventures

Tom Hanks and Ron Howard are locked in for the fourth installment of the Robert Langdon adventures, Inferno, with production to start in April.

Howard had a huge hit with the first thriller, The Da Vinci Code, back in 2006, making more than $750m worldwide, while Angels & Demons earned $485 million globally in 2009. He’s set to direct once again alongside Brian Grazer as producer and David Koepp providing the adapted screenplay. Hanks will reprise his role as the be-mulleted academic/literary hero for the third time on the big screen.

Filming is set to start in Italy in April 2015, which means that the prior release date of December 18, 2015 will likely be shifted to 2016 date.

I’m not a big fan of Dan Brown, but it’s happening. So there you go.

Some people say that the best book of the entire series is the third one that follows world-renowned Harvard symbologist, and is titled “The Lost Symbol,” but Sony apparently decided it’s not entertaining enough.

The book “Inferno” (2013) is officially described as follows:

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.
