Bewildering

According to Deadline, Warner Bros. plans to make a film version of Dante’s Inferno that will focus on the poem's "epic love story", which the article summarizes as "Dante [descending] through the nine circles of hell to save the woman he loves." I am so confused about this. I'm no Dante expert, but is Beatrice even in Inferno? She's mostly in the Purgatorio and Paradiso sections, isn't she? So... are they making a film version of the entire Divine Comedy, or just the Hell bits? (Those are the good bits, from what I recall.) And what is all this soul-rescuing business? Are they confusing this story with Orpheus and Eurydice? WHAT IS EVEN HAPPENING HERE?
