(Welcome to …And more, our no-frills, zero BS guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and anything else you might know.)
Gather around the campfire for another old ripe wire adapted from the works of Dan Brown. You may have read his page turners on airplanes. On the big screen, you saw Tom Hanks play Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon in The “Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons, and Hell. Now you’re all dressed up with nowhere to look The lost symbol.
It’s because it hasn’t come out yet. But here’s everything we know so far.
The release date of the lost symbol and where you can watch it
The lost symbol is scheduled to premiere on September 16, 2021. It is at destination peacock, NBCUniversal’s streaming service, which takes its name from the NBC logo. This means that you will need a subscription to access it.
Peacock’s biggest selling point to date – what sets it apart from one of the many other streaming services – has been that this is where you can stream. Office and WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) as well as this year’s Summer Olympics and next year’s Winter Olympics.
What is the lost symbol?
Unlike previous screen adaptations of Dan Brown’s books, The lost symbol is a television series, not a movie. It started life as a movie with Tom Hanks in mind. It was before Hell.
In the end, Sony Pictures decided to go with Hell as Robert Langdon’s next film instead. This can be confusing for some casual viewers / readers because The lost symbol was Robert Langdon’s third book, but it’s now Robert Langdon’s fourth screen adaptation.
The original title of The lost symbol TV series were simply Langdon. It will be a prequel to the film series, with a younger actor playing the role of Langdon in place of Hanks.
The summary of the lost symbol
The character of Robert Langdon surely owes a debt to Indiana Jones; both are history teachers, although Jones majored in archeology and Langdon majored in symbology. A little like The Chronicles of Young Indiana Jones, The lost symbol will take viewers back to an earlier time in Langdon’s life. This is “the origin of an icon,” the trailer tells us.
According to Peacock, the series will show Langdon solving “a series of deadly puzzles to save his kidnapped mentor and thwart a frightening global conspiracy.” The book opens with Langdon giving a talk in Washington, DC, and involves Freemasons. How could they perhaps relate to a global conspiracy peddled somewhere online?
The director, the crew and more of the lost symbol
Dan Trachtenberg, the director of 10 Cloverfield Way and a certain future Predator movie, directs the first episode of The lost symbol. He’s also on board as an executive producer, along with Brown himself, as well as Ron howard and Bryan grazer. Howard has directed all three Robert Langdon films and co-produced the last two. Grazer co-produced the first two with John Calley (died 2011) and the last with Howard alone.
In addition, Francie Calfo, Daniel Cerona, Anna culp, Samie Kim Falvey, and Frank Syracuse are listed as executive producers, with varying degrees of involvement. As co-producers, they are all joined by Jay beattie and Dan Dworkin, who will be the lead writers of this series. Beattie and Dworkin have already co-developed Scream: The TV Series.
The cast of the lost symbol
Now we get into the flesh of who, precisely, plays Robert Langdon. It is none other than Ashley zuckerman, who played a notable role in Netflix Fear street film trilogy. That’s right: this isn’t his first book rodeo on screen.
A ponytail Eddie Izzard plays Langdon’s mentor, Peter Solomon. Valorie curry plays Katherine Solomon and the trailer below would seem to confirm that they changed her from Peter’s sister to her daughter in this adaptation. Laura de Carteret and Keenan jolliff play as Isabel and Zachary Solomon respectively.
Handsome knapp portrays the main villain, Mal’akh. Sumalee Montano is Sato, the director of the CIA’s Security Office (OS). Rick gonzález is a policeman from the Capitol, Nunez. Other names on the cast list (some of whom may just be guest stars or have small roles) include Raoul Bhaneja, Nicki burke, Gabriel Davenport, Alison mackay, Ellie Moon, Patrick ronan, Sammi rotibi, Gia Sandhu, Geoff scovell, and Simon webster.
