“Life Of Pi” screenwriter David Magee has been hired to pen the script for “The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Silver Chair,” the fourth film in the adaptation of the C.S. Lewis novel series.
Set decades after “Voyage of the Dawn Treader” in Narnia (but only a few years in the real world), Eustace Scrubb and his friend Jill Pole are brought to Narnia by Aslan to find the missing heir of a now elderly King Caspian. The missing Prince Rilian disappeared while on a quest to find the green serpent that killed his mother.
Eustace and Jill set off to the giant-lands north of Narnia to find him, and encounter the Lady of the Green Kirtle and a young man who must be bound nightly to a magical Silver Chair.
In a statement, Magee says: “I have always loved The Chronicles Of Narnia and I endlessly imagined myself finding my own passage into Narnia someday. All these years later, I’m getting to fulfil that wish just a little bit by writing the film adaptation of The Silver Chair and could not be more excited about it.”
The Mark Gordon Company and the C.S. Lewis Company are producing the fourth film which Mark Gordon, Douglas Gresham and Vincent Sieber will produce.
