British actor Felicity Jones is reportedly in talks to star alongside Hollywood star Tom Hanks in Ron Howard’s upcoming film, Inferno.
The 31-year-old Theory of Everything actor is in early discussions to join the adaptation of Dan Brown’s fourth novel in the Da Vinci Code series, according to Deadline. Jones is said to be lined up to play the role of Sienna Brooks, who teams up with the Harvard University professor, Robert Langdon.
Doctor Brooks must help Langdon recover his memories in order to piece together a mystery connected to Dante’s Inferno, and a global plague. David Koepp has penned the film’s script, which follows The Da Vinci Code and the 2009 follow-up, Angels and Demons. The film’s shooting will begin in Italy in April 2015.
