Game Change screenwriter Danny Strong has signed on to write the screenplay for The Lost Symbol.

Back in October, we reported that Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go) will direct The Lost Symbol, after Ron Howard opted out. Steven Knight previously wrote a draft of the screenplay.

The Lost Symbol is based on the Dan Brown novel, which follows the character Robert Langdon from The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons. This story brings Robert Langdon back to America, where he looks into the mysterious Freemasons.

Ron Howard will produce with his Imagine Entertainment partner Brian Grazer. No production schedule was given for The Lost Symbol.
