Michael Apted has signed on to direct Walt Disney Pictures/Walden Media's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
This is the third installment in the series that includes the 2005 film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and the upcoming 2008 release of The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader will begin filming in January and it is set for a May 1, 2009, release date.
Mark Johnson returns once again as producer. Andrew Adamson, who directed the first two films in the series, will continue his involvement by also serving as a producer on the project.
"We're thrilled that (Apted) will be directing 'The Voyage of the Dawn Treader' and feel that he brings his own unique sensibilities, filmmaking experience, and vision to the project," said Oren Aviv, president of production for Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
