Having debuted in cinemas ten years ago, Robert Langdon is returning to the big screen in the new Dan Brown adaptation Inferno which places the Professor in the middle of a potential epidemic.

Returning to the franchise following The Da Vinci Code (2006) and Angels & Demons (2009), Tom Hanks is back - this time in Florence, Italy - rushing to uncover the mystery surrounding Dante's poem Inferno that may or may not have associations with a global plague on the cusp of release.

Joining Hanks for the race against time is Felicity Jones who'll play Dr. Sienna Brookes while Ben Foster, Irrfan Khan, and Omar Sy will all appear.

Ron Howard is pulling the strings once again having directed the previous two Brown adaptations; his first -The Da Vinci Code - became the second highest grossing film of 2006.

On screenwriting duties is David Koepp whose past credits include both the blisteringly fantastic Jurassic Park and the insufferable Mortdecai.

Following Inferno, Jones will be seen heading up the first Star Wars spin-off prequel Rogue One, the trailer of which debuted last month.

Inferno will be released in the UK on 28 October in both 2D and 3D.
