Dan Brown’s fourth Robert Langdon novel, Inferno, and the third (thankfully skipping the godawful The Last Symbol) to score a movie release following 2006’s The Da Vinci Code and 2009’s Angels & Demons has finalised its main cast; with some nifty casting/character images that are about as subtle as the books.
Tom Hanks will reprise his role as Robert Langdon where (via IMDB):
After waking up in a hospital room in Florence, Italy, with no memory of what has occurred for the last few days, Robert Langdon [Hanks] suddenly finds himself the target of a manhunt. With the help of Sienna Brooks, a doctor, and his knowledge of symbology he will try to escape whilst they have to solve the most intricate riddle Langdon never [sic – I just love this] faced.
Rounding out the cast with a decidedly international flavour are Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) as the above-mentioned Dr. Sienna Brooks, Omar Sy (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi) and Sidse Babett Knudsen (The Duke of Burgundy); with the images (via Film School Rejects) below.
Inferno will be directed by Ron Howard, who also directed the previous Robert Langdon movies, and is due for release in the US on 14 October 2016. Are you happy to see Robert Langdon returning to the big screen to unravel secretive organisations’ deadly global conspiracies by following clues placed in famous art works for some obscure reason, again?
