The Lost Symbol – Dan Brown Sequel Coming to the Big Screen


The next Dan Brown novel to be adapted for the big screen featuring Professor Robert Langdon is The Lost Symbol and Sony are already busy getting the book converted into a screenplay.  Doing the honours this time is Steven Knight who also did Dirty Pretty Things, and with the success of the previous two movies in the series you can be sure this movie will be on the fast track.

No news yet on whether Ron Howard will be returning int he directors chair, or whether Tom Hanks will reprise his role as Langdon, but I’m sure that he will.

The book was only released late in 2009 and jumped straight to the top of the New York Times best seller list, and has stayed around there since then.  The book also received widespread critical acclaim for being hard to put down and follows the story of symbologist Robert Langdon and takes place over just twelve hours in Washington DC, where Langdon tries to solve the mystery of a missing man Peter Soloman who is a head of the Smithsonian Institute.  More News on The Lost Symbol when we get it.
