65-year-old Tom Hanks has revealed that he has signed the contract for the film franchise, based on the popular novels by Dan Brown, such as “commercial enterprise”.

The star did not spare his negative views on the stories created by Dan Brown by defining them “Delicious treasure hunts that are as accurate to history as the James Bond films are to espionage”. Hanks adds to the dose by exclaiming: “God, that was a commercial venture. Those Robert Langdon sequels are a bunch of bullshit. The Da Vinci Code is bullshit.”.

Tom Hanks portrayed university professor and iconology expert Robert Langdon in The Da Vinci Code in 2006, Angels and Demons in 2009 and Hell in 2016. All three thrillers were directed by Ron Howard.

Tom Hanks: “Could a straight man do what I did in Philadelphia today? No, and that’s right.”

“I mean, Dan Brown, God bless him, he says” Here’s a sculpture in a place in Paris! No, it’s over there. See how a cross is formed on a map? Well, it’s kind of a cross “ exclaims the actor commenting on the historical inventions of Dan Brown that made the fortune of his novels. “There’s nothing wrong with a good commercial product, as long as it’s good. When we made the third movie, Inferno, we proved it wasn’t good.”
