Magee To Sit In Silver Chair
A fourth movie in “The Chronicles of Narnia” film franchise is in the works and it looks like it will be “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair” after writer David Magee [“Life of Pi”] was hired as writer for the movie. There was always going to be a fourth film in the franchise but it was unknown if it was going to be “The Silver Chair” or “The Magician’s Nephew”, which was the first book in the series authored by C. S. Lewis and which describes how the White Witch came to be. The decision has been made that it will be “The Silver Chair” – the fifth book in the series, but fourth in the film franchise – while “The Magician’s Nephew” will likely get a later, probably 2018, release.
“The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair” is expected to have a 2015 release date.
