Ron Howard and Tom Hanks are teaming up with Dan Brown for the third time.
Sony Pictures will release the film adaptation of author Dan Brown’s Inferno on December 18, 2015.
Tom Hanks and Ron Howard were involved with the first two Robert Langdon films, “The Da Vinci Code” and “Angels and Demons,” which made tons of cash while annoying critics.
In the story, Langdon is back in Europe dealing with coded artwork. Langdon begins the book in a hospital with a head wound and no memory of how he got to Europe or why. When an assassin breaks in and kills his doctor, he goes on the run with a nurse who may know more than she initially reveals, and the big puzzle of the film is all centered around the work of Dante, and specifically his descriptions of Heaven and Hell.
Sony will be skipping Brown’s other Langdon novel, The Lost Symbol.
