“The Chronicles of Narnia” is about to return to theaters, despite not releasing a film since 2010’s “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.“ The film series will continue with the next book, “The Silver Chair,“ to be adapted into a film. However, instead of Disney making the film, Sony has brought the rights and has handed production to TriStar Pictures along .
Deadline recently spoke to producer Mark Gordon, who said, “Developing this project with The C.S. Lewis Company has been immensely exciting and a real joy. We are so pleased to team up with our good friends at TriStar and our partners at eOne to introduce this new, magical chapter of the Narnia franchise to fans around the world, both old and new.”
Mark Gordon will produce the film with author C.S. Lewis‘ stepson Douglas Gresham, along with producers Vincent Sieber and Melvin Adams. David Magee will adapt the script from Lewis’ novel, which centers of “Dawn Treader” character Eustace Scrubb journeying once more to Narnia with classmate Jill Pole. When there, both children find an old and weary King Caspian, who has lost his son and heir, Prince Rilian, to a mysterious enchantress. Currently, there is no release date for “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair.”
