Fourth Narnia film presses ahead, writer hired

The Silver Chair is to be adapted for the screen by Life Of Pi screenwriter David Magee...

Even though the past two films haven't touched the box office performance of The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, they've each done sufficient business to just about get the movie after into production. And that appears to be the case again, with movement now on a fourth Narnia film. The Silver Chair.

There have been some changes behind the scenes this time, though, with Walden Media - who has backed the three films to date financially - pulling out. But the money for the next film has apparently been fond, and now David Magee has been hired to pen the screenplay.

As he admits himself, Magee is a Narnia fan, and he'll be putting the script together, having previously written the screenplay for Life Of Pi.

There's no firm schedule that we know of for The Silver Chair yet, but 2016 seems a likely target to us. We'll keep you posted.
