In January of this year, producer Mark Gordon admitted to reporters that his company is preparing to reboot the "Chronicles of Narnia " franchise. However, since then there has been no news about the project, and now the site Deadline reports that Gordon has found support from TriStar Pictures and Entertainment One (eOne) . Sony and eOne studios will distribute the future film, but the premiere date of the film has not yet been set.|
The project will be based on the fourth book from the popular cycle of K.S. Lewis - The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair. It is being adapted by two-time Oscar nominee David Maggie (Magic Land).
Back in January, Mark Gordon announced that The Silver Chair would kick off an entirely new film series featuring original characters and a different creative team.In the novel taken for adaptation, King Caspian X appears as an elderly man, whose only heir is missing. In order to return his son to the ruler, Aslan sends two schoolchildren to look for him in Narnia.
The first film in the series, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, grossed $ 745 million at the worldwide box office, but the second half grossed much less - $ 419.7 million . After that, the studio Disney abandoned the continuation of the franchise, and Fox 2000 took up the baton. However, the triquel made almost as much money as the previous film, and therefore the company stopped working on the series, not seeing the potential in it.
