Columbia Pictures announced the third film of the Da Vinci Code series, Inferno, is now shooting. Tom Hanks is back as Robert Langdon with Ron Howard returning as director. The cast also includes Felicity Jones, Irrfan Khan, Omar Sy, Ben Foster, and Sidse Babett Knudsen. And, according to Columbia Pictures, Inferno will be shot in Florence, Venice, and Budapest.
“I’m so excited to be starting production on our third Robert Langdon film,” said Howard. “Audiences everywhere have shown a tremendous appetite for the Robert Langdon adventures and Inferno has all of the intrigue and action they could want.”
Inferno will open in theaters on October 14, 2016. The Da Vinci Code was released in May 2006 and brought in $758 million worldwide. Angels and Demons followed in May 2009 and earned $485 million during its theatrical run.
David Koepp adapted Dan Brown’s book and Howard, Brian Grazer, David Householter, Dan Brown, Anna Culp, and William M. Connor are executive producing.
Inferno 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.”
