The Mark Gordon Company and the C.S. Lewis Company have struck a deal to jointly develop and produce The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Silver Chair, which would extend the fantasy film franchise that last appeared with The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader, which Fox released in 2010. Along with the Disney-released The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe in 2005 and Prince Caspian in 2008, the movies have grossed a combined $1.6 billion worldwide.
Mark Gordon and CS Lewis’ stepson Douglas Gresham along with Vincent Sieber, the LA based director of the C.S. Lewis Company, will serve as producers and work with Mark Gordon Co on developing the script. Michele Wolkoff and Sara Smith will oversee for Mark Gordon Co. “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”, Gresham said. “I am very much looking forward to diving once more into Narnia, this time with Mark Gordon and his team.” (more…)
