Shooting for ‘Inferno’, starring Tom Hanks, Irrfan Khan and Felicity Jones, has begun in Florance.
Based on Dan Brown’s book, the new Columbia Pictures movie will continue the Robert Langdon series. The film is slated for release on October 14, 2016.
Hanks reprises his role as Langdon in the movie where he is supported by an international cast including Jones, Irrfan, Omar Sy, Ben Foster, and Sidse Babett Knudsen. The film is directed by Ron Howard and produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard. The screenplay is by David Koepp based on the book by Dan Brown.
“I’m so excited to be starting production on our third Robert Langdon film. Audiences everywhere have shown a tremendous appetite for the Robert Langdon adventures and Inferno has all of the intrigue and action they could want,” Howard said.
Langdon, a Harvard symbologist, 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”.
The film will be shot on location in such exotic cities as Florence, Venice, and Budapest.
