Tom Hanks and Ron Howard confirmed for Dan Brown’s Inferno

Duo will return for latest Robert Langdon story

Having enjoyed box office success with The Da Vinci Code and Angels And Demons Sony has announced plans for its latest Dan Brown adaptation, but it’s probably not the title you were expecting the studio to tackle next…

Rather than following the series as published by moving on to The Lost Symbol, Sony is moving forward with a movie version of Inferno, the most recent of Brown’s well-loved page-turners.

Tom Hanks has signed on to return as intrepid protagonist Robert Langdon, while Ron Howard will also be in the director’s chair once more.

David Koepp will be charged with adapting the script from a story in which Langdon finds himself embroiled in a plot of intrigue and mystery concerning the venerable Italian masterpiece, Dante’s Inferno.

With the novel released a matter of months ago in May, Sony is clearly keen to capitalise on Brown’s current readers, with a release date pencilled in for 18 December 2015.

Have you read Inferno yet? Will it make for a good film? Tell us, below!

      "Rather than following the series as published" - They already haven't. The first Langdon book was Angels and Demons. His stories are awful - Demons being the only decent one. The only reason DaVinci got made first was the insane hype surrounding it ensured it would be a hit.

      @Ali1748 yes, they are the most popular audio books on the market. I recently bought a copy of Angels and Demons narrated by William Shatner

      For all its detractors, I actually really enjoyed the first two films and thought Howard directed them well. I've not read any of the books, but i'd happily welcome a third cinematic outing

      I have to admit i enjoyed 90% of Angels and Demons movie, up until the stooopid helicopter bit which reminded me it was from the mind of Dan Brown. So close...
