The Da Vinci Code scribe said "Inferno" will be set in Italy and will feature Langdon - portrayed on the big screen by Tom Hanks - drawn into "a harrowing world centered on one of history's most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces."

"Although I studied Dante's Inferno as a student, it wasn't until recently that I came to appreciate the enduring influence of Dante's work on the modern world," Brown said, adding:

"With this new novel, I am excited to take readers on a journey deep into this mysterious realm…a landscape of codes, symbols, and more than a few secret passageways."

Both The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons have been made into movies, with The Lost Symbol currently in development.
