Ron Howard Directs and Produces , Film Begins Production in April
’50 Shades Of Grey’ wasn’t the first book to cause a stir at the box office, remember when ‘The Da Vinci Code’ was released in 2006? The movie was a world wide smash hit, being based on one of the biggest selling books of all time helped. This was followed by ‘Angels & Demons’ in 2009, which was also based on Dan Brown’s book of the same name.
Fans of the series will be delighted to hear that Tom Hanks is returning to the role of Robert Langdon in new movie INFERNO. The movie continues the Harvard symbologist’s adventures on screen: when Robert Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, he teams up with Sienna 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.” Felicity Jones, an Oscar® nominee this year for her performance in The Theory of Everything, will star opposite Hanks as Dr. Sienna Brooks.
Commenting on the announcement, director Ron Howard said, “For this film, I wanted Tom Hanks to be surrounded by an international cast of actors whose energy will underscore Robert Langdon’s life-or-death peril, the high-stakes action he takes, and the global threat that he’s trying to prevent. Felicity, Irrfan, Omar, and Sidse have all broken through with recognition here in America as well as their home countries – they are phenomenal talents and we can’t wait to get started.”
