It’s hard to believe, but next year it will have been 10 years since Sony Pictures brought the literary sensation The Da Vinci Code to the big screen with Tom Hanks in the lead role as symbologist Robert Langdon caught up in a dangerous mystery. Dan Brown’s novel took the world by storm and sat on the bestseller list for a long, long time. Angels & Demons brought back Langdon in 2009, and now he’s returning yet again.
Inferno will see Langdon back to solving puzzles, but this time he’s having some trouble remembering the past 36 hours of his life and Dr. Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) must help him out in order to stop a madman’s sinister plan that has ties to Dante’s Inferno. A glimpse at the adaptation coming next fall has just arrived with the first Inferno photos showing off the return of Hanks and the new cast members alongside him. Read More »

Ron Howard just felt a Force push. Howard is prepping Inferno for an April 2015 shoot; it will be his third film based on a Dan Brown novel. Tom Hanks will once again star as Professor Robert Langdon in the adaptation of Brown’s 2013 novel. But the film was scheduled to be released in December 2015.
And while there is no doubt that an audience made up of all your parents and extended family will show up for Inferno, Sony doesn’t want to compete with Star Wars Episode VII, which is scheduled to be released on the same day Inferno was planning to hit theaters. And so Sony has wisely decided to push the film into 2016. Read More »
