Tom Hanks is set to return as symbolist Robert Langdon in Columbia Picture’s film “Inferno,” which is based on Robert Langdon’s series, written by Dan Brown.
Inferno is the fourth book in the franchise after Angels & Demons, The Da Vinci Code, and The Lost Symbol, the latter of which was not made into a film.
In Inferno, Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia and eventually teams with Brooks, a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories and prevent a madman from releasing a global plague connected to Dante’s Inferno. Khan will play Harry Sims, also known as The Provost. Sy will play Christoph Bruder. Knudsen will portray Dr. Elizabeth Sinskey, head of the World Health Organization.
The Imagine Entertainment production, which has a screenplay by David Koepp based on the book by Dan Brown, is slated for release on October 14, 2016 and will begin principal photography at the end of April. Ron Howard returns as both director and producer.
