Succession actor Ashley Zukerman is set to follow in the footsteps of Tom Hanks by portraying Dan Brown’s Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon in the upcoming NBC pilot Langdon.
Produced by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer’s Imagine, the company behind the feature films The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons and Inferno, the series is based upon Brown’s novel The Lost Symbol, but has been reworked as a prequel following a younger Langdon.
Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie (Scream) are serving as showrunners on Langdon, which will see the character tasked with solving a series of deadly puzzles to save his kidnapped mentor and thwart a chilling global conspiracy.
Dan Trachtenberg (The Boys, 10 Cloverfield Lane) is directing the pilot, while Howard, Grazer and Brown are executive producing.
