Eddie Izzard has joined the cast of Langdon, a new TV series based on Dan Brown’s novel The Lose Symbol.
Ashley Zuckerman will star as Langdon in the pilot, alongside Valerie Curry who will portray Katherine, a scientist who studies how consciousness can affect the physical world.
Izzard will play Peter, the director of the Smithsonian and an influential mover and shaker in Washington, D.C.
The novel is set after the events of The Da Vinci Code and follows the early adventures of famed Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon, who must solve a series of deadly puzzles to save his kidnapped mentor and thwart a chilling global conspiracy.
Currently, the show is at the pilot stage and is expected to film later this year.
