I’m a huge fan of David Magee’s Life Of Pi big-screen adaption (and I loved the book) so this might well perk some interest towards the film Narnia series for me as well, as he’s now set to take on the task of bringing The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Silver Chair to audiences.
Growing up, I read a lot of C.S. Lewis but wasn’t that excited about the first three, yes three, film versions that were released. They seemed like a solid fantasy affair but never really hit the heights or enjoyment of the massive world of Narnia and all that goes with it. This adaption would be from the sixth book in the series and even though it’s very early days on the production, having Magee there is a good choice to bring a bit of life back to a story that deserves it. »

Just last month, there came an unexpectedly positive development in the distinctly troubled Narnia franchise, which has suffered from studio chops and changes and occasionally disappointing box office returns. Refusing to give up on the C.S. Lewis-spawned franchise, the company named for him struck a deal with producer Mark Gordon to adapt The Silver Chair, and Life Of Pi’s David Magee is now on board to write the script.Magee will be tackling the book, which finds Eustace (played in The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader by Will Poulter) and classmate Jill Pole sent to Narnia by Aslan on a mission to help the now-elderly King Caspian (who we met in Prince Caspian in the form of Ben Barnes) find his missing son. It’s set years (in Narnia time, at least) after Dawn Treader. Eustace and Jill find a much-changed, much-darker Narnia, and have to somehow restore the missing Prince. »

Movie release dates aren’t exactly like a bus schedule; they’re more like a perpetual game of musical chairs, in which movies both big and small frequently shuffle around to make room for one another and try to nab the good spots before the competition gets to them.

Universal Pictures has made some changes to its upcoming release slate, just before the Thanksgiving holiday break. Following the news that Disney handed out a December 18, 2015 release date for Star Wars: Episode VII, Universal is moving Warcraft from that date to March 11, 2016. Director Duncan Jones' video game adaptation does not have any direct competition as of now in its new release date.
The studio has also pushed Seventh Son, which was brought over in its deal with Legendary Pictures, from a tentative 2014 release to February 6, 2015. The fantasy adaptation, starring Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore, is now going up against Screen Gems' comedy The Wedding Ringer. The move puts Universal in a unique position to debut movies on consecutive weekends, with Fifty Shades of Grey arriving on February 13, 2015.
Universal's Untitled Mummy Reboot was also given a April 22, 2016 release, where it is the only movie currently slated for release on that date. »
"He was so dull in both Snow White and the Huntsman and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End that I'm actively dreading his turn at Finnick." "Somehow even duller and dopier than Orlando Bloom's Will Turner." "Does anyone honestly remember that movie ever existing, much less Claflin's role in it?" I've said a lot of mean things about Sam Claflin over the years, and I'm here to make amends for it. The 27-year-old Brit was so deadly dull in the only two movies he's made, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Snow White and the Huntsman, that when he was cast as Finnick in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire I immediately started throwing daggers. Sure, Claflin is handsome and blond, and he's the flavor of the moment when it comes to pretty boys filling space in blockbusters alongside the actual stars (see also: Orlando Bloom, Ben Barnes, »

Here’s something that will definitely split the film masses – it looks like The Chronicles Of Narnia will be getting film number four after all. While no script has been written just yet, it was announced by the C.S. Lewis Company that they will be developing The Silver Chair for the big screen.
Mark Gordon and Douglas Gresham, the step son of The Chronicles Of Narnia author C.S. Lewis, will be serving as producers alongside Vincent Sieber, the head of C.S. Lewis company. In the announcement today, Gresham said:
“I have a great deal of respect for Mark Gordon’s work and am confident that together we can bring the beauty and magical delight that Narnia engenders in the hearts of those who read the books to the screen in The Silver Chair.”

Though Disney launched them in 2005 with great fanfare, The Chronicles Of Narnia films haven’t quite taken off the way all involved might have hoped. Indeed, the Mouse House ended its involvement with the franchise after the second film, Prince Caspian, and when 2010’s The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader didn’t make the sort of box office return that 20th Century Fox and Walden Media were aiming for, it seemed to sound the death knell for Aslan and co. Yet as readers of the books know, he’s a lion who thrives on resurrection and now the C.S. Lewis Company has struck up a partnership with veteran producer Mark Gordon to bring The Silver Chair to screens.The book finds Eustace (played in Dawn Treader by Will Poulter) and classmate Jill Pole sent to Narnia by Aslan on a mission to help the now-elderly King Caspian (who we met »

"This is the first scene you see me in. It's set in London, in fact, and it's a scene where my character is a gladiator fighting in an arena. That's his gladiator look.

The saddest part of a divorce is when you have children, isn’t it? I mean, who’s going to get who for Christmas, Thanksgiving, and summer holidays? Then when one partner gets remarried, things become even more difficult. With Legendary Entertainment splitting from Warner Brothers and shacking up with Universal, dividing the shared assets of the two studios has become quite a custody battle. Seventh Son, a fantasy epic starring Jeff Bridges, is among the first films that Universal and Legendary get in the battle.
Seventh Son was co-produced by Warner Brothers and Legendary, but now goes with Legendary to meet its new mom, Universal Pictures. This is just the latest film to be divided in the Warner Brothers/Legendary split. So far Pacific Rim and Godzilla remain with Warner Brothers, while Legendary gave up their share of Batman vs. Superman in exchange for a piece of Interstellar.

There are plenty of reasons to be excited for upcoming fantasy The Seventh Son, not the least of which is the reunion of Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore on the big screen for the first time since The Big Lebowski. Bridges plays Master Gregory, the mentor to a talented young man called Thomas (Ben Barnes) who has the potential to become a Spook: a fighter of evil creatures and magic. Moore stars as just one example of the evil that they have to overcome – a witch called Mother Malkin.
Those who are eagerly waiting to see The Seventh Son have already been frustrated twice by a release date that keeps ...
