Sony Pictures Entertainment, Imax Corp. and Imagine Entertainment have announced that “Inferno,” the third film in the Dan Brown-Da Vinci Code franchise, will be digitally re-mastered into the Imax format.

The film, starring Tom Hanks as Dr. Robert Langdon and directed by Ron Howard, will be released into Imax theatres worldwide coinciding with the film’s general release dates. “Inferno” will be released domestically on Oct. 28.

Rory Bruer, president of Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures, said, “We’ve had an extraordinary response to the film from audiences – it’s testing extremely well.”

The film’s screenplay is by David Koepp, based upon the novel by Dan Brown. Brian Grazer and Ron Howard are the producers.

Howard returns as helmer after directing Hanks in the franchise’s previous installments: “The Da Vinci Code” (2006) and “Angels & Demons” (2009).  The two previous installments, also adapted from Brown’s novels, grossed more than $1.2 billion at the worldwide box office.
