Indian actor Irrfan Khan is set to work with Tom Hanks and Felicity Jones in Ron Howard's upcoming adaptation of Dan Brown's novel Inferno.
Irrfan, best known for his roles in Slumdog Millionaire, Life of Pi and The Lunchbox, will play the role of Harry Sims aka The Provost, the head of a mysterious organisation.
The makers said they are planning to cast more international faces in the movie.
"For this film, I wanted Tom Hanks to be surrounded by an international cast of actors whose energy will underscore Robert Langdon's life-or-death peril, the high-stakes action he takes, and the global threat that he's trying to prevent.
"Felicity, Irrfan, Omar, and Sidse have all broken through with recognition here in America as well as their home countries they are phenomenal talents and we can't wait to get started," Howard said.
