Tom Hanks will reprise his role as Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon in director Ron Howard’s Inferno, based on Dan Brown’s “Robert Langdon” book series.
‘Inferno’ is an adaptation of Brown’s fourth book following Angels & Demons, The Da Vinci Code and The Lost Symbol, which has not been adapted for the big-screen.
Oscar nominee Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) will star opposite Hanks as Dr. Sienna Brooks.
Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi, The Amazing Spider-Man) joins the cast as Harry Sims “The Provost,” Omar Sy (The Intouchables, X-Men: Days of Future Past) as Christoph Bruder and Sidse Babett Knudsen (Borgen) as Dr. Elizabeth Sinskey, the head of the World Health Organization.
In ‘Inferno’, Langdon (Hanks) wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia and eventually teams with Brooks (Jones), a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories and prevent a madman from releasing a global plague connected to Dante’s Inferno.
‘Inferno’ is set for an October 14, 2016 release date.
