INFERNO Still Happening With Tom Hanks and Ron Howard; Italy Shoot Planned for April

     August 26, 2014

We last reported on this over a year ago, so this update isn’t meant to break any new revelatory information as much as it is to remind you that, yes, Inferno is still happening.  The film is of course the third installment in director Ron Howard’s ongoing adaptation of Dan Brown’s hugely popular book series.  Tom Hanks is still set to reprise his role as Robert Langdon.  The book features Langdon attempting to solve a riddle once again, this time influenced by Inferno, the first part of Dante Alighieri’s 14th century epic poem, “Divine Comedy.”

And now we know that the project is finally set to start shooting in Italy this April (with a script by previously reported writer David Koepp).  This means that the prior release date  of December 18, 2015 will likely be tossed out in favor of a 2016 date.  Personally, I’m not a huge fan of this series, but it’s happening so there you go.  Maybe the new “Langdon has amnesia” angle will help keep my interest this time out?  That seems legitimately more interesting than anything from the first two films.  Hit the jump for more on Inferno.

In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces . . . Dante’s Inferno.

Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust . . . before the world is irrevocably altered.

Hard to get the blood pressure up for this one, but I love Hanks and want to give him the benefit of the doubt.  How about you?
