Felicity Jones set to star alongside Tom Hanks in Dan Brown's Inferno
Felicity Jones, star of Chalet Girl and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, has reportedly entered talks to star alongside Tom Hanks in Inferno, the third instalment based on the Dan Brown novel series that began with The Da Vinci Code.
Hanks will reprise his role as Professor Robert Langdon, who in this instalment awakens in an Italian hospital with amnesia. Once out, he teams up with Sienna Brooks, a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories and prevent a madman from releasing a global plague connected to Dante’s Inferno.
Jones, according to Deadline, is in talks to star as Brooks.
Hanks has played Langdon twice before, in 2006's The Da Vinci Code and 2009's Angels And Demons, between them the films have grossed over a billion dollars at the box office.
Ron Howard, who will once be behind the camera on Inferno, is currently preparing his new epic In The Heart Of The Sea for a March 2015 release, while Hanks will next be seen in A Hologram For The King, a new adaptation of Dave Eggers' novel of the same name.
Jones will next be seen on screen in the much-discussed Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory Of Everything.
