Sony Pictures is already preparing to work what will be his third film adaptation of Dan Brown's bestseller, "The Lost Symbol". Third film after adapting two previous books "The Da Vinci Code" and "Angels & Demons".
The screenwriter and writer of the television series "Game Change" and "Count", Danny Strong, write, according to a Web publication Deadline, the adaptation of "The Lost Symbol" will direct the American director Mark Romanek ("Portraits of an obsession")
The original screenplay for the film adaptation of the book is written by Steven Knight, but whether the new writer will work on that basis, which would be revised and retouched by himself.
The film, which still do not know when will be the beginning of the shooting but with the chance to start this year to reach the screens of all cinemas in 2013, will be produced by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer via Imagine Entertainment. Thus the director Ron Howard gives way to the third to Mark Romanek.
What is known is that without Tom Hanks, a third film would not have the same incentive as the previous two so it is certain that the actor will play the role of Professor Robert Langdon.
"The Lost Symbol" will be based on the novel by Dan Brown, follows Robert Langdon, the character of "The Da Vinci Code" and "Angels & Demons".
The argument of the book and movie deal on Professor Robert Langdon, the symbologist from Harvard University, where he was invited to lecture at the Capitol in Washington. When Langdon gets there he realizes that the invitation you received was not as he thought of Solomon, his mentor and a 33 degree Mason, but his kidnapper, Mal'akh, who has left mutilated right hand of Solomon at the roundabout Capitol recreation of the Hand of the Mysteries. Mal'akh orders Langdon to find the Masonic Pyramid, which is believed to hiding somewhere underground in the city of Washington, and the Lost Word so that Solomon is not executed.
Although the novel has not aroused the same passion as with the two previous novels adapted to the big screen, his argument seems to hook enough to attract viewers who enjoyed the previous films.
