Narnia 4: The Silver Chair storytelling gets a boost

Fans of The Chronicles of Narnia movies could be wondering whether a fourth instalment of this franchise just might be on the cards, and it seems this has been contemplated with talk of Life Of Pi screenwriter getting involved.

Over the course of the three films American audience numbers have died down, especially in regards to the sequels, but foreign box office figures remained strong. Highlighting the possibility of Narnia 4: The Silver Chair, Cinema Blend mentions the Mark Gordon Company and the C.S. Lewis Company’s announcement last month about an adaptation of Lewis’ The Silver Chair was indeed in the works.

Apparently, Academy Award-nominated screenwriter David Magee is set to write the upcoming sequel, and after receiving two nominations for both Finding Neverland and Life of Pi we can expect his introduction to the Narnia films might just be a decent way to revive the fans appreciation of the 2005 megahit The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

This could result in The Silver Chair film having a sharper story this time around and Magee highlights his excitement about being involved. It seems the plot The Silver Chair revolves in Narnia decades after the events of the last film, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and focuses on Eustace Scrubb and Jill Pole attempting to solve the mystery of King Caspian’s missing son and future heir.

This will be the first film in the series that has not been penned by duo Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, although many feel that the acquisition of Magee could bring more to how the world of Narnia is portrayed on the big screen. This in turn, could attract a credible director to help this adaption. So are you excited about a return to Narnia?
