Ron Howard and Tom Hanks will be back for Dan Brown's Inferno

Jul. 16, 2013by:

Another installment of the "Da Vinci Code" is coming our way December of 2015, and there's nothing you can do about it. Eh, the first really wasn't all that bad. The second was a little much for me even though Tom Hanks in anything makes me insanely happy.

Tom Hanks and Ron Howard are back on (of course) to tackle the third installment. Okay, they are actually skipping the third and moving on to the fourth. This isn't anything surprising though since they did set the events of ANGELS & DEMONS after DA VINCI CODE and it's really the other way around. Howard does not have any interest in directing the true third installment, THE LOST SYMBOL but he will be on in a producing capacity.

Synopsis: In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of historys most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces... Dantes 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 Dantes dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust... before the world is irrevocably altered.

INFERNO has a release date of December 15, 2015. THE LOST SYMBOL is likely to come after that.

Skipping over The Lost Symbol? To be fair, I kinda liked Angels and Demons, it was a much better movie than The Da Vinci Code which was too slavish to the source material. Sure, A&D was equally preposterous, if not more so, but it was entertaining and had some pretty cool action beats and a fun performance from Ewan McGregor.

I will file this under who gives a shit?

I have never read these books. I have seen the first movie, but it was so boring and uninteresting I can't remember a single thing about it other than Paul Bettany's albino/monk/assassin.

Dear planet Earth,

I love Tom Hanks & Ron Howard, but please stop making Dan Brown richer than he already is.

I will take each negative vote to confirm that there are still many people out there without taste, or self-respect.

To say someone who likes Dan Brown's books as being without taste is very condescending. Books, like all other forms of entertainment, are completely subjective--respect the readers just because they don't share your sentiments.

"To say someone who likes Dan Brown's books as being without taste is very condescending."

No. Dan Brown's books are the Madea/Adam Sandler/Big Bang Theory/Two and a Half Men/Nickelback/Jay Z/Jersey Shore/Real Housewife LOWEST COMMON DENOMINATOR OF LITERARY FICTION.

This is the appropriate place for his condescension, which incidentally is warranted.

Both of you tools need to get off your high horse, to say someone is stupid for having an opinion is moronic. Besides, I'd absolutely love to see what both of you think are high marks of books and movies, I'd be willing to bet there's more than a couple "turds" on those lists...

Maybe because a bad book is not literally a "turd".

@Fox Mulder

Since we're talking about books, here's some of the literary fiction I find fascinating and enthralling, you know, stuff with actual stories containing actual descriptions of things and well written characters I actually care about, unlike Dan Brown's ridiculous random arrangement of butchered prose.

Anything by Peter F. Hamilton, Alastair Reynolds or Iain M. Banks (particularly the Culture series)
Anything By Dan Simmons, particularly Ilium, Olympos, The Terror &

Anything by Peter F. Hamilton, Alastair Reynolds or Iain M. Banks (particularly the Culture series)
Anything By Dan Simmons, particularly Ilium, Olympos, The Terror & Hyperion
Perdido Street Station, The Scar, The City & The City, The Kraken, Embassytown and almost everything else by China Mieville
The Dark Tower series by Stephen King, as well as IT, The Stand, Under The Dome
Snow Crash, The Diamond Age & Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson
A Song Of Ice & Fire series by George RR Martin
Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Tai-Pan, Shogun & Gai-Jin by James Clavell
Altered Carbon & Market Forces by Richard Morgan
The Saga Of Pliocene Exile by Julian May
Weaveworld, The Damnation Game, Books Of Blood & Imajica by Clive Barker

As far as non-fiction I read a fair number of autobiographies (recent ones include Christopher Reeve, Joe Simpson, Michael J Fox, Anthony Kiedis, Michel Caine, Stephen Fry), but at the moment also things like:

The God Delusion, The Greatest Show On Earth & The Magic Of Reality by Richard Dawkins
God Is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens
50 Popular Beliefs That People Think Are True by Guy P Harrison
The Game by Neil Strauss
A Brief History Of Time & The Universe In A Nutshell by Stephen Hawking
A Short History Of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson
The 48 Laws Of Power by Robert Greene

...there's more, but you know how it is, that's all I can think of off the top of my head.

Feel free to flame away.

Furthermore, I'm not saying that people are stupid for having an opinion. To clarify, I'm saying they're stupid for liking Dan Brown novels. I reserve the same amount of contempt for people who watch American Idol style TV shows and people who use their smart phones during a movie.

Much preferred Inferno to The Lost Symbol so I'm happy to see them skipping it for the time being. I personally thought Angels & Demons was better than Da Vinci Code. However, the ending should have been changed involving the whole helicopter explosion crap.
