While this going to be a semi-reboot of the Narnia series. Variety is reporting that Captain America: The First Avengers director Joe Johnston is set to helm the upcoming picture. Which will follow The Silver Chair novel in The Chronicles of Narnia book series. TriStar Pictures will partner with the Mark Gordon Company on the upcoming feature after Walden Media lost the rights after Narnia: Voyage on the Dawn Treader. All new cast of children will be used in the upcoming films and potential sequels given the original actors are far too old.
Mark Gordon adds: “Joe is a wonderful storyteller who is equally at home in the biggest franchises and the most intimate character pieces. Because C.S. Lewis’ story is iconic and epic, but also tender, personal, and emotional, he’s the perfect choice to bring ‘The Silver Chair’ to the screen.”
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair has no set release date
