This past weekend we here in Washington DC got a lot of snow. Um… “A whole lot of snow”? …Okay, how about, “a metric ton of snow”? Ooh… “The fourth heaviest snowstorm dating to 1884.” There. I think that sums it up nicely.
Given this, I (not even kidding) have not left my home in five days (but I’m still sane! No really, I promise! The purple bunnies in my pantry told me so.) And of course, being a very practical person, since I knew the storm was coming I ensured I was well-stocked with all the necessary items beforehand. But then, around the end of Day 1, as the snowdrifts began inching into the two-foot range on my windowsills, I began to wonder what I would do to entertain myself if the power went out (taking with it, one might assume, the Internet).
“Ah-ha!” I said to myself. “I have »

Producer Mark Gordon has confirmed that a film adaptation of C.S. Lewis' "The Silver Chair," what would be the fourth film in "The Chronicles of Narnia" series, is in active development. However he's also offered something of a perplexing quote about it.

All original. All original characters, different directors, and an entire new team that this is coming from."
This has led to the throwing about of the word 'reboot' which is not the case as such here as, despite the change of cast, it sounds like it's continuing the same narrative rather than starting over.

It's been a few years since we saw the Pevensies treking across Narnia and saving its inhabitants. If what a recent report from Collider is true, we won't be seeing them again. The report talks about a conversation had with Life of Pi and Finding Neverland writer, David Magee. Magee is also the writer of The Silver Chair, the fourth book in the C.S. Lewis Series.

That's a really good sign of things to come, without getting an official announcement from Disney! The Silver Chair takes place many years in the future and follows an older King Caspian in his search for his son, »
