Lost Symbol Film Plans

Variety has reported that Columbia Pictures is moving forward with plans for a movie version of Dan Brown's most recent book, The Lost Symbol. Brian Grazer and Ron Howard will once again produce (returning from The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons), although it's not known yet if Howard will also direct. Tom Hanks is expected to reprise his role as Robert Langdon.

In an amusing coincidence, Columbia have signed screenwriter Steven Knight to adapt to the book for film (Akiva Goldsmith penned the two previous adaptations). With Brown's book bringing positive press to the Masonic fraternity, some readers might remember that it was the late British author Stephen Knight (no relation, as far as I know) and his book The Brotherhood which instigated a major scare campaign against Freemasonry in the 1980s....

Lost Symbol movie

I am happy to hear someone else will be adapting the Lost Symbol book to the movie and I hope Tom Hanks does not play Robert Langdon-I personally was so disappointed with the Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons movies...Tom Hanks was never the right person to portray Robert Langdon! such great books and the concepts and the thrill of the subject and the incredible locations used in both books were delivered in such a dry and boring manner.....these great thrillers were really ruined by the movie production...
thanks for listening
