Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair Gets Captain America Director
After announcing last year that the Chronicles of Narnia franchise will be "restarted" with the new movie The Silver Chair, the producers have finally found their director. Joe Johnston has signed on to direct this fantasy adventure, marking his first movie since the 2014 thriller Not Safe For Work. No cast members have been set at this time, but this story will feature characters from the original C.S. Lewis novels, who haven't been featured in any of the previous movies.

Variety broke the news today, which comes eight months after producer Mark Gordon joined forces with Sony's TriStar Pictures, eOne and The C.S. Lewis Company for this restart. David Magee came aboard to write the screenplay in 2013, although the studios haven't set a release date or a production start date at this time quite yet. Here's what producer Mark Gordon had to say about bringing Joe Johnston in to direct The Silver Chair.

Andrew Garfield Says He Was Passed Over For ‘Prince Caspian’ Because He Was “Not Handsome Enough”

  • The Playlist
Andrew Garfield has hit many peaks (and valleys) in his career, from doing big, mega-blockbuster movies (“The Amazing Spider-Man“) to working with Martin Scorsese (“Silence“), but things didn’t always work out for the young actor. It seems at one point in his career, he was keen on playing the titular character in “The Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian,” but he didn’t have the right stuff, or more accurately, the right face.

‘Marvel’s The Punisher’ set pics: Jon Bernthal starts shooting

The next big Marvel TV series The Punisher has started filming. We’ve already seen Jon Bernthal as Franck Castle in the second season of Daredevil, but the iconic Marvel character will get his own show sometime in the near future.

Bernthal has been spotted with quite the beard on the streets of New York filming some early scenes from the Netflix-based project. While the photos aren’t too exciting – Bernthal can just be seen carrying a bag – they do give us an idea of how his character of Frank Castle will look in the upcoming 10-part series.

Ben Barnes joins The Punisher as a series regular

It looks like casting is underway on Netflix’s latest Marvel project, with TV Line reporting that Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian) has signed on to appear alongside Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle as a series regular in The Punisher.

Although character details are being kept under wraps, it is rumoured that Barnes will be playing the villain Bobby Saint, the son of mob boss Howard Saint. Both characters were created for the 2004 movie starring Thomas Jane, with James Carpinello playing Bobby and John Travolta as Howard.

It would surely be a huge surprise if Marvel used a character created for a movie over the many possible comic book villains at their disposal, so I’d suggest taking that rumour with a pinch of salt…

Marvel's The Punisher: Ben Barnes Joins The Netflix Series In Villain Role

  • LRM Online
Marvel's Netflix series certainly have a lot going for them. While it'd be easy for the shows to be overly-dark, bland, and violent for the sake of violence, there is a real heart to each and every one of them. The characters in these shows aren't just characters. They're not just plot devices. They're not chess pieces on a board moved around in order to lead to the next big tentpole character. No, they've living, breathing entities. This is the case for Daredevil, and this is the case for Jessica Jones.

While Season 2 of Daredevil had a lot of strong points to it, one of the big standouts was Frank Castle, a.k.a. The Punisher.  This anti-hero had been tackled on three different occasions up until that point -- all of them unsuccessfully. While he was a favorite among fans, for one reason or another, no one could seem to get him right.

Marvel And Netflix's The Punisher Casts Chronicles Of Narnia's Ben Barnes As Series Regular

TV Line has broken our first bit of casting news for Marvel and Netflix's planned Daredevil spin-off, which will continue the bloody exploits of The Punisher. According to them, Ben Barnes (Westworld, Dorian Gray, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian) has signed on to star opposite Jon Bernthal's Frank Castle. We don't know for certain who he'll be playing, but TV Line has heard it'll be Bobby Saint, who is not actually a Marvel Comics character and was introduced in 2004's The Punisher as the son of John Travolta's Howard Saint. This seems like an unusual move, as there are lots of great Punisher villains that could be utilized ahead of a minor thug created for a 12 year-old movie. Anyway, we'll see if this turns out to be the case. In the meantime, let us know what you think in the usual place.

TriStar, eOne, Mark Gordon journey to 'Narnia'
Eleven years after Disney and Walden Media launched The Chronicles Of Narnia franchise in theatres, a new jigsaw of partners has come together to adapt the fourth book in C S Lewis’ fantasy classic.

Sony’s TriStar Pictures label has teamed up with The Mark Gordon Company, The C.S. Lewis Company and ambitious eOne on The Silver Chair, which TriStar, The Mark Gordon Company and eOne will finance.

The parties did not reveal the precise distribution strategy on Tuesday, however the elements raise the prospect of a desirable tentpole presenting itself to international buyers.

Sony and eOne will handle distribution. Screen understands TriStar will release the film in the Us, while eOne would appear likely to release the fantasy in Canada and could also handle in other markets where it distributes directly, namely the UK, Australia/New Zealand, Spain and Benelux.

5th Panama International Film Festival Builds in Industry Events, Regional Lineup
Panama City — Paddy Breathnach’s Cuban-set “Viva,” set in Havana’s drag nightclubs and selected as Ireland’s entry in this year’s foreign language film Oscar race, will open the fifth Panama International Film Festival (Iff Panama), which bows this Thursday, April 7.

Director Pituka Ortega Heilbron and artistic director Diana Sanchez consider this year’s edition the strongest to date, given the breadth of films slated, the range of guests, the record number of industry events and – key — the unprecedented number of films screening from Central America and the Caribbean.

“There are incredible films now coming out of this region,” says Heilbron. “We’re fortunate to have the perfect prerequisites for a coordinated and well-functioning festival, given the location of Panama City, its connectivity, infrastructure, hotels, access and support from the government, private sector and the local business sector.”

Mad Max Furiously Rules The Empire Award Nominations

Mad Max Furiously Rules The Empire Award Nominations
Mad Max: Fury Road has landed the most 2016 Empire Award nominations — ten (the same it got from the Oscars!) — of 2016 with Star Wars: The Force Awakens nipping at its heels with nine. The British magazine Empire presents the awards, which are voted on by readers and cinema fans around the world — both the nominations and the awards themselves. (And, technically speaking, they’re the Jameson Empire Awards, since Jameson Irish whiskey began sponsoring them in their 14th year. Cheers to that!)

With The Force Awakens being part of the beloved Star Wars mythology and breaking box-office records left and right at record speed, it’s a bit surprising Mad Max outpaced it. It goes to show that both fans adore this instant classic as much as the critics do, getting nods for:

'The Silver Chair' Will Completely Reboot 'Narnia' Franchise
Just over 10 years ago, The Chronicles of Narnia franchise launched with the big screen adventure The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, which paved the way for 2008's The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian and 2010's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader. It's been over two years since we heard anything about the fourth installment, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair, with a December 2013 report that Life of Pi writer David Magee came aboard to write the script. Today we have a new update from producer Mark Gordon, who reveals that The Silver Chair will reboot the franchise entirely. Here's what he had to say, when asked if any characters from the first three movies would be involved.

"We're hoping to be able to make the movie very shortly. We're very excited about it. No, it's all going to be a brand new franchise.
