Felicity Jones In Early Talks To Enter ‘Inferno’ With Tom Hanks

"The British actress is in early talks to join the latest Dan Brown novel adaptation "

British actress Felicity Jones is riding high on the critical acclaim of her latest movie The Theory of Everything, where she plays Jane Hawking, the devoted wife of famous scientist Stephen Hawking (played in an awards-caliber performance by Eddie Redmayne). Industry insiders are predicting Jones to be one of the front-runners for a best actress nomination at the upcoming Oscars ceremony.

Now, in the wake of her current attention, she may take on her most high-profile role yet. According to Deadline, Jones is in early talks to star opposite Tom Hanks in Ron Howard’s Inferno. The movie will be the third installment based on the Dan Brown series of novels, best known for the blockbuster The Da Vinci Code book and film.

In Inferno, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon (Hanks) awakens in an Italian hospital with amnesia. He teams up with Sienna Brooks, the role Jones is being considered for, a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories and prevent a madman from releasing a global plague connected to Dante’s Inferno.

Sony Pictures has enjoyed impressive worldwide box office from both Da Vinci Code and follow-up (and prequel) Angels And Demons. They grossed a combined $1.2 billion globally. Brian Grazer produces alongside Howard. David Koepp wrote the script.

Jones recently wrapped Autobahn for up-and-coming British director Eran Creevy (Welcome To The Punch) and is in production on Juan Antonio Bayona’s much-anticipated dark fairy-tale A Monster Calls.

This talented up-and-coming actress has an impressive early resume of roles that convey woman who exude maturity and honesty. I look forward to her upcoming projects and her emerging talent.
