If your parents have a bookshelf, there’s a very good chance there’s a copy of The Da Vinci Code on that bookshelf. (My parents’ certain does.)
It may be Mother’s Day, but Sony doesn’t want your dad to feel left out. The studio has released a teaser for the first Inferno trailer, along with a couple of posters offering a sneak peek at the finale to The Da Vinci Code trilogy. And it looks like the series is prepared to go out with a bang, as Tom Hanks is literally holding the fate of the world in his hands.
It’s been six years since Angels and Demons, Ron Howard’s sequel to The Da Vinci Code, the mystery thriller based on Dan Brown’s best-selling novel. You might want to grab your parents for this one, because we have our first look at Inferno, the third film in the series featuring dad-hero Tom Hanks reprising his role as Robert Langdon along with a few new faces.
It was fairly inevitable that director Ron Howard and Tom Hanks would team up for another sequel to The Da Vinci Code, despite the largely underwhelming Angels and Demons. As Inferno finally gears up for production, the new project is certainly making a case for our interest, adding a trio of international stars to the cast, including actors from X-Men and Jurassic World.
Though Dan Brown's reign as the king of airplane reading may be over, his Robert Langdon books produced two very successful movies. So it's no surprise that Brown's 'Inferno' is being adapted for the big screen, with Tom Hanks returning as Langdon, and with Ron Howard directing, and has been set for a December 2015 release.
