Next ‘Chronicles Of Narnia’ Movie ‘The Silver Chair’ To Reboot Franchise
  |  @   |  

The Chronicles of Narnia movie franchise has traveled a rough road, being dumped and picked up by different movie studios a couple of times, but it’s not dead just yet.

It was back in 2013 when we found out that a fourth movie, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair, was officially on the way. The movie would be a co-production of The Mark Gordon Company and C.S. Lewis Company, with C.S. Lewis’s stepson Douglas Gresham developing the screenplay along with Mark Gordon and C.S.

New ‘Chronicles Of Narnia’ Movie ‘The Silver Chair’ Announced
  |  @   |  

The Chronicles of Narnia movies, which are based on the books of author C.S. Lewis, never quite seemed to pop as a franchise like The Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter, for example.

After Fox took over the franchise from Disney for the third movie and things didn’t go any better than the second, it felt like that might have been the last of the Chronicles of Narnia we would see. Not so fast. It’s being reported that a fourth movie in the franchise is indeed on the way, based on the book The Silver Chair.
