The cast for the upcoming Ron Howard directed film ‘Inferno’ has revealed its very diverse cast. Based off of the best selling novel by Dan Brown, the cast joining Tom Hanks is very international.
Oscar nominee this year for ‘The Thoery of Everything’, Felicity Jones joins the cast as Dr. Sienna Brooks. Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi, Slumdog Millionaire) will take on the role of Harry Sims who is also known as The Provost. Omar Sy, a French actor who starred in ‘The Intouchables’ and ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ has bee cast as Christopher Bruder. Dutch actress Sidse Babett Knudsen has also be cast as Dr. Elizabeth Sinskey, the head of the World Health Organization.
‘Inferno’ is expected to begin production this spring and will be executive produced by Dan Brown, Bill Connor, David B. Householter, and Anna Culp. Director Ron Howard had this to say about the new cast.
“For this film, I wanted Tom Hanks to be surrounded by an international cast of actors whose energy will underscore Robert Langdon’s life-or-death peril, the high-stakes action he takes, and the global threat that he’s trying to prevent. Felicity, Irrfan, Omar, and Sidse have all broken through with recognition here in America as well as their home countries – they are phenomenal talents and we can’t wait to get started.”
In ‘Inferno’ we find Robert Langdon (Hanks) waking up in an Italian Hospital with amnesia. In the film he teams up with Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) to recover his memory and stop the release of a plague connected to Dante’s Inferno.robe
