Felicity Jones(The Theory Of Everything) is in early talks to star opposite Tom Hanks in Ron Howard’s Inferno. Picture will be the third installment based on the Dan Brown series of novels best known for the blockbuster The Da Vinci Code book and film.
In Inferno, Harvard symbologist Henry Langdon (Hanks) awakens in an Italian hospital with amnesia. He teams up with Sienna Brooks, the role Jones is being considered for, a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories and prevent a madman from releasing a global plague connected to Dante’s Inferno.
Sony Pictures and Imagine Entertainment have enjoyed strong global returns from both Da Vinci Code and follow-up (and prequel) Angels And Demons. Brian Grazer produces alongside Howard. David Koepp wrote the script.
