Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol is getting a TV adaptation


Tom Hanks had been playing Robert Langdon in the Ron Howard directed adaptations of the Dan Brown novels The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons and Inferno.

Deadline is reporting that NBC has given a production commitment to Langdon, a drama based on Dan Brown’s novel The Lost Symbol, from Daniel Cerone (Motive, Constantine), Imagine Television Studios, the TV arm of Ron Howard and Brian Grazer’s Imagine Entertainment, CBS TV Studios and Universal Television.

The Lost Symbol is the third Brown novel featuring the character of Langdon, following Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code, and is set after the events of The Da Vinci Code. However, the TV show is being fashioned as a prequel to Langdon’s cinematic adventures.

Here is the book synopsis:

The Capitol Building, Washington DC: Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon believes he is here to give a lecture. He is wrong. Within minutes of his arrival, a shocking object is discovered. It is a gruesome invitation into an ancient world of hidden wisdom.

When Langdon’s mentor, Peter Solomon – prominent mason and philanthropist – is kidnapped, Langdon realizes that his only hope of saving his friend’s life is to accept this mysterious summons.

It is to take him on a breathless chase through Washington’s dark history. All that was familiar is changed into a shadowy, mythical world in which Masonic secrets and never-before-seen revelations seem to be leading him to a single impossible and inconceivable truth…

Written and executive produced by Cerone, Langdon follows the early adventures of famed Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon, who finds himself pulled into a series of deadly puzzles when his mentor is kidnapped. The CIA forces him onto a task force where he uncovers a chilling conspiracy.

I doubt Tom Hanks will be in the series, but how about his son, Colin Hanks, taking over the role? We will have to wait and see who is cast in the lead role, but I do feel it may work better as a TV show.
