The 'Captain Phillips' actor and director Ron Howard are scheduled to head to Italy to shoot the third film next year.

"Inferno" eyes April 2015 as a start date. Tom Hanks is tapped to reprise his role as Professor Robert Langdon in the third adaptation of Dan Brown's novel that started with "The Da Vinci Code". The filming is expected to take place in Italy, according to Deadline.

Ron Howard who helmed the first film and its 2009 sequel "Angels & Demons" returns to serve behind the lens. David Koepp who penned the second movie is also brought back to write the screenplay. The threequel is tentatively set for a December 18, 2015 release.

The movie is based on the fourth installment in Brown's book series, skipping the actual third book "The Lost Symbol". The story is set in Europe and inspired by Dante Alighieri's 14th-Century epic poem, "The Divine Comedy". It will follow Langdon attempting to solve a riddle once again.
