Inferno Adapted by Ron Howard and Tom Hanks. Author Dan Brown‘s Inferno is being adapted into a film by Ron Howard and Tom Hanks. This will be the third outing for Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon by the duo. Inferno is the fourth book in Robert Langdon series. The Lost Symbol, the third book in the series, is being skipped for an adaptation. The two previous Dan Brown’s books adapted were The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons.

Ron Howard will direct Inferno and Tom Hanks will play Robert Langdon again. “David Koepp, who wrote Angels & Demons, is aboard to write the script.”

The plot synopsis for the book Inferno:

In his international blockbusters The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, and The Lost Symbol, Dan Brown masterfully fused history, art, codes, and symbols. In this riveting new thriller, Brown returns to his element and has crafted his highest-stakes novel to date.

In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces . . . Dante’s Inferno.

Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust . . . before the world is irrevocably altered.
