This outing finds Langdon in Italy, grappling with a chilling puzzle revolving around Date’s Inferno. He’ll face a new and cunning adversary and an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science.
Can he solve the problem before the world is forever changed? Given his track record, we’re going to guess he has a good shot. The book arrived in May and is now in development at Sony, but Deadline could find no word on a writer.
The other mystery will be whatever happened to The Lost Symbol, Brown’s third Langdon adventure and one that has been bubbling away in development itself since at least 2011. Ron Howard seemed unwilling to revisit the series, and stepped away to merely produce, with Mark Romanek seen as the likely replacement. But though Brown himself and Steven Knight worked on a script, the film has quietly disappeared.
With Inferno now the focus and Howard apparently back – though it’ll have to wait at least until he’s made In The Heart Of The Sea – it seems the Symbol will stay lost for now.
Howard’s latest, Rush, drives on to screens on September 13.
