Dan Brown’s Inferno is being adapted into a movie

Sony Pictures and Imagine Entertainment have confirmed to adapt Dan Brown‘s latest best-selling novel into a movie. ‘Inferno’ is the fourth book in the Robert Langdon series, after ‘Angels and Demons’, ”The Da Vinci Code’ and ‘The Lost Symbol’.

I am surprised that a possible adaptation of ‘The Lost Symbol’ is given a miss. The movie versions of ‘The Da Vinci Code’ and ‘Angels and Demons’ were released in 2006 and 2009, respectively.

Tom Hanks will reprise his role as Robert Langdon and Ron Howard is set to direct the movie. The screenplay will be written by David Koepp. Here is a glimpse of the plot:

In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centred 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.
