Dan Brown’s Inferno poses one central question – if you had to kill half the world’s population to save the other half, would you?
So we decided to put the dilemma to the stars of the film, Felicity Jones and director Ron Howard.
And understandably, for such a difficult question, the two gave two different answers.
‘That way is fanaticism and madness,’ suggested Felicity, while Ron, who has directed the two previous films in the Robert Langdon series, The Da Vinci Code and Angels And Demons, told Metro.co.uk that the question is ‘unanswerable’.
‘I sort of align with those who say it’s not up to one individual,’ he added.

Inferno is the fourth book in Dan Brown’s series but became the third film after Sony decided to pull the plug on The Lost Symbol at the last second.
Despite rumours of a script being ready, Ron admitted that they ‘have yet to come up with a screenplay that we believe makes a really compelling movie experience’ and that Tom Hanks agreed that Inferno was ‘a great movie story’.
‘In it are these really entertaining, powerful components, and so we rushed to make this movie,’ he said.
