Omar Sy, Irrfan Khan top cast set to join Tom Hanks in ‘Inferno’

Sony and Columbia Pictures’ Inferno, the latest Dan Brown series of movie adaptations with Tom Hanks as the protagonist Robert Langdon, added another cast member as the production draws near.

Omar Sy from X-Men: First Class and the upcoming Jurassic World has been cast with Irrfan Khan, known for Slumdog Millionaire and Life Of Pi, but is also in Jurassic World.

Sidse Babett Knudsen, star of the Danish TV series Borgen, will be in the film with Hanks and Felicity Jones, who is enjoying the success of The Theory of Everything, will play Dr. Sienna Brooks.

Director Ron Howard is back, directing David Koepp’s script. Howard is also producing with Brian Grazer. Production starts at the end of April in Italy.

The previous film installment of the Robert Langdon franchise, 2009’s Angels & Demons, based on the first book in the series, grossed $486 million worldwide. They skipped over the third book in Brown’s series, The Lost Symbol, to get to this one after the production just never “got legs.”

In Inferno, Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia and eventually teams with 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.

Khan will play Harry Sims, also known as The Provost. Sy will play Christoph Bruder. Knudsen will portray Dr. Elizabeth Sinskey, head of the World Health Organization.

Inferno arrives in theaters October 14, 2016.
