Dan Brown 'writing The Lost Symbol script'

21st December 2010

Bestselling author Dan Brown has been tasked with writing the script for the big screen adaptation of his novel The Lost Symbol.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Da Vinci Code author has taken over the scriptwriting duties after Oscar-nominated Steven Knight, who wrote 2007 gangster thriller film Eastern Promises, left the project.

This is the first time Brown has personally adapted one of his novels for the silver screen.

The Da Vinci Code, which took USD 1.24 billion (GBP 800 million) at the worldwide box office in 2006, was scripted by Akiva Goldsman, who also adapted the 2009 version of Angels & Demons with David Koepp.

A number of other changes could also be seen in the new production, the publication added. Ron Howard, who directed the first two Brown adaptations, has not confirmed if he will helm the film, while Tom Hanks has yet to sign up to reprise the role of protagonist Robert Langdon.

Last year, The Lost Symbol sold more than one million copies in the US, UK and Canada within 24 hours of going on book store shelves.
