Tom Hanks & Ron Howard / Inferno

Over a year ago, news surfaced that Sony Pictures was going to round up director Ron Howard and star Tom Hanks to adapt Dan Brown's novel Inferno, the latest book in the series featuring symbologist Robert Langdon. Hanks played the character who gets caught up in action and adventure, like an upscale Indiana Jones, in both The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, and while there's a third book that hasn't been turned into a film, The Lost Symbol, the studio is just marching onward with Inferno, a story which finds our hero suddenly waking up in an Italian hospital with amnesia. Did you see Fonzie jump that shark?

Anyway, Langdon has to team up with Dr. Sienna Brooks to help recover his memories in order to prevent some psychopath from unleashing a global plague that is somehow tied to the classic Dante's Inferno. These books and films have never been subtle, but that certainly doesn't mean they've been exciting. But due to the popularity of the books around the world, both of the preceding films were big box office hits, so it's no surprise that Sony wants to round up Howard and Hanks for another adventure. Deadline says production will begin in April in Italy, and while there's no release date set yet, expect it in 2016. Anyone care?

    Ehh, the first 2 were mildly entertaining.
      Agreed. Definitely not amazing or anything. But both were decent.

        I find them to be good late night fair.
    It will make them a boat load of cash. I will probably see it. Hakuna Matata.

    They dated this for December 2015 a while back, I figured it wouldn't make that date...especially if they aren't set to enter production until April. Didn't the 2nd film make significantly LESS than the first? I imagine the diminishing returns would continue for this 3rd outing.

    Loved the book. But not overly looking forward to the film. Never really cared for the films I mean they're watchable and decent. And I always thought Tom Hanks wasn't right for the role. I love him as an actor I just don't see him as Robert.

    What a coincidence, I was just wondering the other day if they will make a follow-up for Angels And Demons.
