‘Inferno’: Ron Howard Reveals Cast For Third ‘Da Vinci Code’ Movie

Dan Brown's Inferno

Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard has officially revealed the cast for Inferno, the third movie in his Da Vinci Code trilogy based on the books of author Dan Brown.

The previous two movies, 2006’s The Da Vinci Code and 2009’s Angels & Demons, starred two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks in the lead, and the actor again reprises his role as Robert Langdon for the trilogy-maker. The second movie was actually Hanks’ first ever live-action sequel, believe it or not (he of course voiced the character Woody in Pixar’s Toy Story animated features and shorts), which naturally makes Inferno his first live-action trilogy.

You can see who else Howard has announced for the cast below.

Happy 60th Birthday To Ron Howard

Ron Howard

Ron Howard, who is one of the few true artistes of a higher caliber in Hollywood and who has excelled as a virtual Renaissance man in that industry as an actor, director, and producer, celebrates his 60th birthday today.

It almost seems that for the entire world, there has never been a time that Ron Howard hasn’t been in our consciousness in one way or another. From his earliest starts as a pint-sized cute redhead who follows Robert Preston around in The Music Man, to being the son of the conscientious TV star Andy Griffith on CBS’s The Andy Griffith Show as Opie Taylor, to seemingly sprouting up overnight and becoming a tall teenager with multitudes of growing pains as one Richie Cunningham on the smash sitcom Happy Days (which just unbelievably celebrated its 40th anniversary earlier this year), Ron Howard seemed to tackle all of those aforementioned roles with a grace and an aw-shucks charm that never turned him off to audiences because of it — it was quite the contrary actually.

‘The Lost Symbol’ To Become Third Film In ‘Da Vinci Code’ Franchise

The Lost Symbol

Columbia Pictures is ready to roll the dice on The Da Vinci Code franchise one more time, announcing that it is officially moving forward with The Lost Symbol, which is based on author Dan Brown‘s book of the same name.

When The Da Vinci Code first came out, it was a mass hit and was everywhere you looked and listened. This popularity obviously carried over when director Ron Howard and star Tom Hanks teamed up for the movie adaptation, and though it wasn’t as well-received, the movie still made $758 million in its box office run. A sequel was always expected considering there were more books in the series, but for some reason it never felt quite right. Angels & Demons was even less-liked than the original, and it went on to make $486 million — not a bad take, but surely not up to the hopes of the studio.

Despite the lackluster performance of Angels & Demons, this news comes as no real shock. Yes the original made a lot more money, but it also made a profit of of over $300 million. You don’t need to have the best business sense in the world to think that another film could deliver similar numbers, even if it ultimately doesn’t fare well.

Is Joel Schumacher’s ‘Batman & Robin’ The Most Important Comic Book Movie Of All Time?

Batman

One of the busiest screenwriters working today, Akiva Goldsman, spoke to the LA Times recently about many, many big upcoming projects. The writer is one of the few rare cases we’ve seen that makes a case for giving people second chances. He wrote the scripts for Joel Schumacher‘s Batman Forever and the passionately-hated Batman & Robin, but went on to take home an Oscar for Best Picture winner A Beautiful Mind. In an around these two highest and lowest points, he’s done many other well-known movies that received varying response such as I, Robot, Cinderella Man, The Da Vinci Code, and I am Legend.

When the topic of Batman & Robin came up something was mentioned that stuck out. It came from the mouth of Marvel’s main man, Kevin Feige, who was quoted as saying that the loathed comic book movie may actually be the most important movie to be made for that genre. And why would he say such things? Well, because of how horrid the movie was, of course. Feige explained that the sheer awfulness of that film forced open new eyes, which in-turn laid the groundwork for the much more accepted style of comic book movie making seen in franchises like Spider-Man and X-Men.

Movie Review: Angels and Demons

Angels and Demons
Directed by Ron Howard
Starring Tom Hanks, Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgard
Rated PG-13
Release date: May 15, 2009

Angels and Demons is a direct sequel to The Da Vinci Code and based on the book of the same name (though Dan Brown fans will tell you Angels is actually supposed to be the prequel of The Da Vinci Code).

Angels and Demons brings back symbologist (aka glorified scavenger hunter)Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) on another yet mystery involving Catholicism. On the eve of the latest’s Pope’s death, the four cardinals vying for the Papacy have been kidnapped by a member of a secret organization known as The Illuminati. The assailant promises to kill one cardinal for every hour until midnight when he sets off an anti-matter bomb somewhere in Vatican City. Now, it is a race against time as Langdon searches for the Cardinals and tries desperately to stop the bomb before it kills thousands.

Written by David Koepp (Spider-Man) and Akiva Goldsman, Angels is a fast-paced thrill ride from beginning to end. One part National Treasure, one part Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?, the movie starts off with a murder and never gives you a chance to breathe. Even some of the more dialogue-filled scenes are quick. It is not so much that the lines are delivered quickly, but rather there is so much substance in it, viewers really need to listen to the dialogue, comprehend it, and try to figure out where Langdon will go next. Sure, moviegoers do not have to play along, but how can you resist? The whole movie is a mystery and everyone loves a good mystery.

Sony has released six new clips and one new featurette from their upcoming film, Angels & Demons, directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks.

In the new featurette, titled “Vatican City,” Ron Howard and Tom Hanks talk about the history of this religious city and how the adventure in the film is tied to it.

Watch all the new footage here below; note, the first video embedded has the six new clips, plus two older ones, so continue on through to watch them all. Also, I’ve include two previously released featurettes.

Angels & Demons sees Hanks back in the role of Professor Robert Langdon, who at this point, is already renown for his adventures in the Da Vinci Code, so he’s called upon by the Vatican to help them thwart a plan by their ancient enemy — The Illuminati — to destroy Vatican City and bring about the downfall of the Catholic Church.
