Fourth Narnia Flick The Silver Chair To Be Written By David Magee

9 December 2013 11:00 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

David Magee was nominated for an Academy Award for his work on Finding Neverland and was more recently recognized for his screenplay of Life of Pi in 2012. He’s got another fantasic book adaptation in his sights in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair, my second favorite of the series of seven books.

Producers for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair include Mark Gordon, Douglas Gresham, Vincent Sieber for The C.S. Lewis Co. and Michele Wolkoff and Sara Smith for The Mark Gordon Co. This all according to THR who quotes David Magee saying the following about his new venture.

I have always loved The Chronicles of Narnia, and I endlessly imagined myself finding my own passage into Narnia someday. All these years later, I’m getting to fulfill that wish just a little bit by writing the film adaptation of The Silver Chair and could not be more excited about it. »

Back in October, it was announced that C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia series is to continue on the big screen with producer Mark Gordon (Saving Private Ryan) securing the rights to adapt The Silver Chair, and now it's been revealed that Oscar-nominated screenwriter David Magee (Finding Neverland, Life of Pi) has signed on to pen the script for the fantasy sequel.

"I have always loved The Chronicles of Narnia and I endlessly imagined myself finding my own passage into Narnia someday," said Magee as part of the official announcement. "All these years later, I’m getting to fulfill that wish just a little bit by writing the film adaptation of The Silver Chair and could not be more excited about it."

Fourth Narnia film presses ahead, writer hired

5 December 2013 11:29 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Simon Brew 6 Dec 2013 - 07:24

The Silver Chair is to be adapted for the screen by Life Of Pi screenwriter David Magee...

Even though the past two films haven't touched the box office performance of The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, they've each done sufficient business to just about get the movie after into production. And that appears to be the case again, with movement now on a fourth Narnia film. The Silver Chair.

There have been some changes behind the scenes this time, though, with Walden Media - who has backed the three films to date financially - pulling out. But the money for the next film has apparently been fond, and now David Magee has been hired to pen the screenplay.

As he admits himself, Magee is a Narnia fan, and he'll be putting the script together, having previously written the screenplay for Life Of Pi. »

"Pi" Scribe To Pen "Narnia: Silver Chair"

5 December 2013 2:17 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Life Of Pi" screenwriter David Magee has been hired to pen the script for "The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Silver Chair," the fourth film in the adaptation of the C.S. Lewis novel series.

Set decades after "Voyage of the Dawn Treader" in Narnia (but only a few years in the real world), Eustace Scrubb and his friend Jill Pole are brought to Narnia by Aslan to find the missing heir of a now elderly King Caspian. The missing Prince Rilian disappeared while on a quest to find the green serpent that killed his mother.

Eustace and Jill set off to the giant-lands north of Narnia to find him, and encounter the Lady of the Green Kirtle and a young man who must be bound nightly to a magical Silver Chair.

In a statement, Magee says: "I have always loved The Chronicles Of Narnia and I endlessly imagined myself finding my own passage into Narnia someday. »

Life Of Pi Screenwriter Will Take Us Back To Narnia For The Silver Chair

5 December 2013 1:20 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

For the last few years, moviegoers have been left unsure when they would be getting the chance to go back to Narnia. American audience numbers slacked off over the course of the two sequels following 2005.s megahit The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, but the foreign box office remained strong. As a result it wasn.t really a surprise when the Mark Gordon Company and the C.S. Lewis company announced last month that an upcoming adaptation of Lewis. The Silver Chair was in the works, and they.ve now hired the Academy Award-nominated screenwriter David Magee to pen this third sequel in the franchise. Perhaps they.re hoping they can make up in critical acclaim what ticket sales may fail to bring in. Magee.s two nominations came from adapting Allan Knee.s Finding Neverland in 2005 - when he lost out to Sideways - »

'Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair' Moves Forward With 'Life of Pi' Screenwriter

5 December 2013 7:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The long-gestating fourth installment of "The Chronicles of Narnia" series has just tapped an Oscar-nominated screenwriter to pen the project.

David Magee, who wrote Academy Award-nominated screenplays for "Life of Pi" and "Finding Neverland," will script "The Silver Chair."

"I have always loved 'The Chronicles of Narnia,' and I endlessly imagined myself finding my own passage into Narnia someday," Magee said in a statement. "All these years later, I'm getting to fulfill that wish just a little bit by writing the film adaptation of 'The Silver Chair' and could not be more excited about it."

This latest installment of the "Narnia" franchise comes after the last two films -- including the most recent adaptation, 2010's "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" -- disappointed at the box office. Adding Magee's pedigree to the project could breathe new life into the series, which many thought would never see all »

David Magee Writing New Narnia Film

5 December 2013 1:30 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

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. »

Pre-Production Begins on The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Silver Chair

18 October 2013 2:00 PM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

When I read The Chronicles of Narnia for a book club I was surprised that I actually had not read them all as I had once thought, and just when I thought I had the formula down for C.S. Lewis’ writing it would take a twist I wasn’t expecting. I’m thrilled that after relatively successful movie adaptations of the first three books, they’re going ahead with the fourth, The Silver Chair. Here’s the official press release.

You daily film news bulletin, fresh from the grinder

Tgif!

All over the planet, filmgoers are getting ready to fork out for the latest films - here's where you can find out whether they're any good.

• We've got a bunch of British films to look over this week, kicking off with Sunshine on Leith, the Proclaimers-soundtracked musical directed by Dexter "Get Babyface!" Fletcher. With three big stars from Peter Bradshaw, it's clear Fletcher is becoming a proper film director. Another Scottish-set film, For Those in Peril, gets a decent three stars, hot from its Cannes premiere, while How We Live Now, starring Saoirse Ronan and directed by Kevin Macdonald, is similarly awarded. Incredible as it may seem, All Three films feature a young man called George MacKay, who is accorded an interview in Film & Music to mark the achievement.

The Silver Chair doesn't sit right as the next Narnia film

It's a major disappointment: the next Narnia film should be The Magician's Nephew, Cs Lewis's own prequel to the series

Peter Bradshaw's five-star review of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

• From Harry Potter to Narnia: the pressure on film franchises to perform

The Chronicles of Narnia movies were greenlit in the wake of huge success for Harry Potter at multiplexes, but have never quite lived up to the success of their more modern counterparts. Might it have been different if Tilda Swinton's fabulously evil White Witch had not been killed off at the end of 2005's The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe? Both 2008's Prince Caspian and 2010's The Voyage of the Dawn Treader suffered from a distinct Swinton deficit (though she did make a brief cameo in the latter).

If so, this week's announcement that the company which owns the »

Fourth Chronicles Of Narnia Film Moving Forward

2 October 2013 6:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I've enjoyed the Chronicles of Narnia films over the years, but after the last one I honestly didn't think we would see another as it wasn't the best in the series. But today it has been announced that The Mark Gordon Company and the C.S. Lewis Company will team up to develop and produce the fourth film in the series, The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Silver Chair.

Prior to this, Fox released The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader,  in 2010, and before that Disney released The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe in 2005 and Prince Caspian in 2008.

Cs Lewis’ stepson Douglas Gresham is a producer on the film, and he had this to say in a statement,

Like Aslan and some other guy before him, the fourth Narnia film has been resurrected

A Christ-like lion figure in cinematic form, the Narnia film series has been resurrected for a fourth installment. After three films produced with Walden Media—The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe and Prince Caspian released by Disney and The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader by Fox—the C.S. Lewis estate’s development deal expired in 2011, with the possibility for future films adapting more overtly religious allegories left hanging in the balance. But now producer Mark Gordon has brokered a new deal to move forward on The Silver Chair—the fourth novel by publication history, though the sixth »

The Saga Continues: 'The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Silver Chair' In The Works

2 October 2013 7:01 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Gather round, sons of Adam and daughters of Eve... It has been some time since we last heard anything about “The Chronicles of Narnia,” the perennially third-fiddle-playing epic sort-of-children's fantasy film series (behind “Harry Potter” and the Tolkien films): but as I am sure you know, time passes differently in Narnia, and while it has been two years here on Earth, it may have only taken two days of Narnian time for C.S. Lewis' estate to dump producers Walden Media and their plan to film the prequel “The Magician's Nephew," and instead go into business with a new production company (The Mark Gordon Company) to film the series' fourth book, “The Silver Chair” (and please, let's not get into whether or not “The Silver Chair” is actually the fourth book).This is sort of a safe decision, but it happens against the wider chronicle of weirdness and controversy »
