Director Ron Howard and Tom Hanks are primed to cap off their trilogy of globetrotting crime cappers later this year with Inferno, the apocalyptic thriller that heralds the return of Hanks’ brilliant mastermind and symbologist, Robert Langdon.
Following up on The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, Howard’s latest directorial effort is once again based on Dan Brown’s literary phenomenon, this time teeing up Tom Hanks and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story alum Felicity Jones as a partners-in-supernatural-crime.
David Koepp (Angels & Demons) is the brains behind the script, pitting Jones and Hanks against a deranged scientist known as Bertrand Zobrist, who wants nothing more than to unleash doomsday upon the unsuspecting masses.
“‘Dante’s Inferno’ isn’t fiction — it’s a prophecy.” Look for Inferno to summon forth the fiery pits of hell when Howard’s trilogy-capper opens in theaters on October 28. Sidse Babett Knudsen (The Duke Of Burgundy), Omar Sy and Irrfan Khan also star.
Ron Howard returns to direct the latest bestseller in Dan Brown’s (Da Vinci Code) billion-dollar Robert Langdon series, Inferno, which finds the famous symbologist (again played by Tom Hanks) on a trail of clues tied to the great Dante himself. When Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, he teams up with Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones), a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories. Together, they race across Europe and against the clock to stop a madman from unleashing a global virus that would wipe out half of the world’s population.
