Felicity Jones, the lovely British actress that can currently be seen in the Oscar-bait film on the life of Stephen Hawking The Theory of Everything may be joining the cast of Ron Howard’s Inferno. The film will be Howard’s third film based on Dan Brown’s series of novels that began with 2006’s The Da Vinci Code. Tom Hanks is all ready set to return as series protagonist Robert Langdon.
Jones is in early talks, according to Deadline. She would play Sienna Brooks, a doctor attempting to help Langdon recover from amnesia in time for him to prevent a madman from unleashing a plague linked to Dante’s Inferno.
Back when Sony’s Spider-Man franchise was looking to expand to 40 films a year, Jones was rumored to be up for Black Cat after a brief appearance in this year’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
