Best-selling author Dan Brown has signed on to re-write and finish the screenplay for his latest novel, last year’s ‘The Lost Symbol,’ is reporting. Sony, which is on board to release ‘The Lost Symbol,’ hopes Brown’s script will add to the combined $1.25 billion revenue of the ‘Da Vinci Code’ and ‘Angels and Demons’ films.

This is the first time Brown has worked on writing the scripts for the film adaptations of his books. Akiva Goldsman wrote ‘The Da Vinci Code’ script, and was joined by David Koepp for ‘Angels and Demons.’

The film version of ‘The Lost Symbol’ is expected to hit theaters in 2012, as there was a three year gap between 2006’s ‘The Da Vinci Code’ and 2009’s ‘Angels and Demons.’ Sony reportedly wants to keep the same gap between the latter and ‘The Lost Symbol,’ as a way to keep the series’ built-in audience.
