I wouldn't be at all surprised to see the producers behind the films skip over Symbol (currently still in the scripting phase) entirely and go straight to Inferno.
Well, y'all may file this one under "Gaith calls it again!", because Deadline (via The AV Club) is reporting that that's exactly how things are going down over at Sony.

Take that, Washington, DC! No (movie) shoot for you!
Suits me. I don't want to see Hollywood butcher Freemasonry for its own benefit again.

i thought Inferno was alright. it was better than The Lost Symbol, but then i'm not one of those who hated that novel.

Re: Dan Brown new novel, "inferno"

I enjoyed Inferno. It's a fast read good for summer reading. I thought Angels and Demons was the best of the Langdon stories. The Lost Symbol seemed a bit silly at times but I didn't mind it as much as others seem to. But Dan Brown seems to be falling into the Dean Koontz trap where the characters are the same in each novel with just different set ups and locales.

Re: Dan Brown new novel, "inferno"

Yes, he has always been quite formulaic. Wasn't too bad in his early books, as he was still relatively new. Also liked his non-Langdon books a lot, like Deception Point and Digital Fortress, the former containing the most graphic and (from what I've heard) most technically accurate literary representation of what happens to someone when they freeze/drown to death. It was truly creepy and an excellent read. His most recent books, though, yeah, are getting a bit tiresome. He really needs a new pattern and material. Perhaps he should give Langdon a rest for a while.
