'Langdon': Release date, cast, plot and everything you need to know about NBC's series based on Dan Brown's 'The Lost Symbol'
The show will be directed by Ron Howard while Daniel Cerone comes in as writer and executive producer
NBC is developing 'Langdon', a TV show based on author Dan Brown's thriller series featuring Robert Langdon, as reported by Deadline. The TV version is to adapt Brown’s 'The Lost Symbol,' and here's what we know so far about the series.
While NBC has committed to the production, there is no clear release date at the moment. But with the log line already shared, we can expect to hear an official release date shortly.
Here is the official synopsis: "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."
'The Last Symbol' is the third book in Brown's series after 'The Da Vinci Code' and 'Angels & Demons.' It is possible that the creators may tinker a bit with the timelines since Den of Geek announced the show would see a younger Robert Langdon, the lead character.
With the production of the series just announced, guess we are in for a wait since there is no whiff of who plays Langdon yet.
The show will be written and executive produced by Daniel Cerone. He co-created NBC's short-lived cult classic 'Constantine' and has also worked on 'The Blacklist', 'The Mentalist', 'Dexter' and 'Charmed.' Director Ron Howard ('Rush' and 'Solo: A Star Wars Story') will helm the project.
Given the production timeline, there is no telling when we'll get a glimpse of the trailer, but we'll keep you posted as and when we get an update.
The series is an extension to the three movies directed by Ron Howard which starred Tom Hanks as Robert Langdon, the iconic symbologist in the 'Da Vinci Code', 'Angels & Demons' and 'Inferno.'
