The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair (4)
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair – Eustace Scrubb and Jill Pole set off on a journey to the land north of Narnia in order to rescue King Caspian’s stolen son, Rilian.
Now Collider finally has an update from Gordon, which reveals that the film is on its merry way.
“We’re hoping to be able to make the movie very shortly,” states Gordon. “We’re very excited about it.”
With Magee’s script completed, a big question would be if any of the young actors from the previous three Walden films would carry over into the new one, which takes place a decade after The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and prominently features the character Eustace Scrubb (played by Will Poulter in the 2010 adaptation).
“No, it’s all going to be a brand new franchise,” confirmed Gordon. “All original. All original characters, different directors, and an entire new team that this is coming from.”
Gordon later confirmed that “original” meant characters from Lewis’ books that have yet to appear onscreen, as opposed to inventions of the screenwriter. It looks like this fourth film is going into total reboot territory, which is not surprising given that the previous films suffered from diminishing box office returns. However, it remains to be seen if those films suffered due to lack of quality or merely public disinterest in seeing any films in the series beyond The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, which is by far the most well-known title in the series.
The “Silver Chair” book is described as follows on the official C.S. Lewis site: Through dangers untold and caverns deep and dark, a noble band of friends is sent to rescue a prince held captive. But their mission to Underland brings them face-to-face with an evil more beautiful and more deadly than they ever expected. (comingsoon.net)
