Robert Langdon is back in The Lost Symbol, Tom Hanks likely to return
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Tom Hanks and his weird hair look set to return for a third installment of the Robert Langdon series in THE LOST SYMBOL. Although THE DA VINCI CODE and ANGELS AND DEMONS were somewhat disappointing for audiences, the box office numbers were still pretty decent. So as long as Dan Brown keeps writing adventures for Langdon, I think we can safely say that there will continue to be movies.
Tom Hanks has not officially signed on, but it’s generally accepted that he will return. He’s been a huge fan of the character and it would be odd for him to choose not to reprise his role. However, Ron Howard is not such a sure thing. At this point, I’d like to see another director give it a shot.
