Last year Tom Hanks and Ron Howards loosely agreed to reteam for their third adaptation of one of Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon novels. While a film version of The Lost Symbol had defeated them (it’s believed the logistics of shooting in and around some of Washington DC’s most famous landmarks proved too difficult), they thought Inferno might be able to make it to the screen.
Now it seems it’s coming to fruition, as Deadline reports that the film is due to start production next April.
In Inferno, symbologist Robert Langdon once more get thrust into the heart of a mystery, this time revolving around medieval poet Dante Alghieri. However to make things a little more complicated Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia. He has no idea what’s going on but it soon becomes clear it has something to do with a global plague, as well as artefacts to do with Dante.
A December 18th, 2015 release has already been set.
