TriStar, the Mark Gordon Company and Entertainment One are teaming to finance a film adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ “The Silver Chair,” the sixth book in the author’s “Chronicles of Narnia” series.
Set after the events of “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” the son of the now King Caspian goes missing which leads Aslan the lion to send Eustace Scrubb and his boarding school classmate Jill Pope in search of the missing monarch.
A new creative will tackle the continuing story with a fresh approach which means it’s unlikely any of the previous actors like Ben Barnes (Caspian), Will Poulter (Eustace) or Liam Neeson (Aslan) will reprise their roles.
David Magee (“The Life of Pi,” “Finding Neverland”) will pen the script. The Mark Gordon Company will develop and produce the film, their first ‘Narnia’ film as the previous three were produced by Walden Media.
Sony Pictures and eOne will handle distribution. The previous three film adaptations premiered in 2005, 2008 and 2010 respectively with the franchise having grossed more than $1.6 billion at the global box office.
