In April of this year, it became known that Joe Johnston (Jumanji) was selected to direct the upcoming reboot of The Chronicles of Narnia. Since then there has been no news about the project, but recently the first rumors appeared in the press about who could play the main role in the film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair.|
According to That Hashtag Show, Mysterious Events star Millie Bobby Brown was cast as Jill Pole by TriStar Pictures. The girl is a classmate of Eustace Wred, the central character of The Silver Chair, who is a cousin to the Pevensie children. In the book, he travels with Jill to Narnia in search of Prince Riliane. Will Poulter plays Eustace in The Voyage of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, but don't wait for the actor to return in the reboot.
Unfortunately, the source does not know if Brown accepted TriStar's offer. If the rumors prove to be true, the Silver Chair may become another large-scale project for the Emmy nominee. After the success of Mysterious Events, Millie has become one of the most sought-after young actresses in Hollywood, but despite the abundance of potential film projects, she has so far only agreed to take part in the filming of the second Godzilla.
The release date for the new Chronicles of Narnia has not yet been determined, but if everything goes according to plan, then the release of the fantasy could take place as early as 2019. Director Joe Johnston will be based on the script by David Magee (Life of Pi). According to the director, the reboot should be darker than the original trilogy. In addition, Johnston admitted that he wants to start from scratch, forgetting about the existence of previous films.
