The Silver Chair Movie Is Confirmed

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair is working its way into production now that the C.S. Lewis Company has entered into an agreement to jointly develop and produce the film based on C.S. Lewis’ fourth book.

Gather round, sons of Adam and daughters of Eve... It has been some time since we last heard anything about “The Chronicles of Narnia”.

Many were wondering whether there actually will be a movie for The Silver Chair, but there will be! Or at least, one is planned, which brings up another of the series' problems: the three most obvious films have been made already. “The Magician's Nephew” would have been tricky given that it's a prequel with a different set of characters and a different lot of concerns (not that all that couldn't have been rewritten, of course). “The Silver Chair” will allow the series to again use Eustace Scrubb and Prince Caspian from earlier installments; look out also for the possibility of Tilda Swinton, who has played The White Witch in previous films (including ones whose source books don't feature her), being reused here as The Lady of the Green Kirtle, who is occasionally considered a version of the same character, something the producers will likely seize on. But it's a downright bizarre tale, gloomy and meandering and prominently featuring a melancholic swamp-creature and an insane and tortured prince. Still, it should be a breeze compared to the one that's all about horses and horrible not-quite-Muslims, or the one where everybody dies.

Gordon, Gresham, and Vincent Sieber will all be producers of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair, and will work with Mark Gordon’s company on developing the film’s script.

And now we know more about the upcoming Narnia movie, let's hope it's not a complete perversion!


I used Indiewire and Hypable to make this, so go on! Read the rest; there`s more!
