Latest Tom Brown Novel “Inferno” Heading To Big Screen In 2015

InfernoThe latest Dan Brown potboiler, Inferno, the fourth in his series featuring Harvard University symbologist Robert Langdon, has been burning up the book sales charts since its release in May and Sony is hoping that the big screen adaptation of the book will do the same thing in 2015. The studio, which owns the film rights to the thriller series, has set a release date of December 18, 2015 for the project which will see Tom Hanks returning to play Langdon after having played the scholar/adventurer in the hit adaptations The DaVinci Code and Angels & Demons. Ron Howard will also return to direct the film.

Sony had been developing the third book in the series, The Lost Symbol, with Danny Strong working on the screenplay. Mark Romanek was picked to direct after Howard decided he didn’t want to work on the film. Now, that project is on the backburner while everyone’s efforts are directed on Inferno.
