On February 17th 2015, the full cast for the movie was revealed.
The filming of the movie began on April 27, 2015 in Venice in Italy and later continued in Florence, Italy. The outdoor scenes starring Hanks were filmed near Palazzo Vecchio and in some places in the historic center of the city. On May 11, 2015, the low flying aerial shots of the Florence landmarks such as the rivers and bridges were filmed. The outdoor sequence appears to have been shot somewhere in Padova Railway Station as per the trailer. As of June 5, 2015, most of the movie was planned to be shot in Budapest, Hungary.

Back in July 2013, Sony had set the film to be released on December 18, 20015. However, the release dates clashed with that of 'Star Wars: the Force Awakens' and it was moved to October 16, 2016.

Expected Box Office
Tom Hanks received a salary of over $50 million so as to reprise his role as Robert Langdon in 'Angels and demons'. At that time, his salary was the biggest in the history of Hollywood. Having knocked it off in the last two sequels, it’s no surprise that we are seeing him return for the third. With the last movies having smashed the box office with 'The Da Vinci Code' taking in over $758 million, and 'Angels and Demons' $ 486, the box office for the 'Inferno' is likely to be impressive with Hanks enjoying a good share of the profits. By the time that 'Inferno' will hit the theaters, more than ten years will have passed since 'Da Vinci Code', the significant drop in box office will also be a bit startling and with the decline in demand from Dan Brown books, the box office might get even worse.
Why everybody thinks that 'Inferno' will be the best Dan Brown adaptation
The Da Vinci Code is said to have been Tom Hanks ever worst hair related disaster. Luckily, his design team has decided to make a change and is not going to continue with his unfortunate mullet again. Secondly, he will be accompanied by Felicity Jones Dr. Brooke the brilliant scientist who also happens to be stunningly beautiful. The other casts such as Omar Sy, Irrfan Khan, Babett Knudsen and Ben Foster are also some of the casts that are likely to make the inferno an explosive movie. Moreover, the production team has had plenty of time to work on the movie and ensure that it is the best release in 2016.
Ron Howards note about 'Inferno'
Ron Howard states that there are elements of horror in the thriller, which is down to Dan Brown finding his source of inspiration in the medieval Italian poet influential masterpiece.
