The Chronicles of Narnia Returning to the Big Screen with The Silver Chair


The Chronicles of Narnia will return to film thanks to a new deal with TriStar Pictures, the literary-focused label of Sony Pictures. The Mark Gordon Company, The C.S. Lewis Company, and Entertainment One along with TriStar Pictures will continue the Narnia tales by adapting “The Silver Chair” for film.

The Chronicles of Narnia is a series of seven novels written by C.S. Lewis. They have sold over 100 million copies worldwide, and published in more than 50 languages. The series began with the publication of “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe” in 1950. Six more novels (including the prequel, “The Magician’s Nephew,” and the sequels, “The Horse and His Boy,” “Prince Caspian,” “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” “The Silver Chair” and “The Last Battle”) followed over the next six years. The final title in the series, “The Last Battle,” was awarded the highest mark of excellence in children’s literature, the prestigious Carnegie Award.

The Mark Gordon Company and The C.S. Lewis Company are jointly developing and producing the film which will be adapted by David Magee, the two-time Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Life of Pi and Finding Neverland. Mark Gordon, C.S. Lewis’ stepson Douglas Gresham, Vincent Sieber, and Melvin Adams serve as producers.

“Developing this project with The C.S. Lewis Company has been immensely exciting and a real joy. We are so pleased to team up with our good friends at TriStar and our partners at eOne to introduce this new, magical chapter of the Narnia franchise to fans around the world, both old and new,” said Gordon.

Commenting on the announcement, TriStar head Hannah Minghella said,

“Reading ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ was one of the formative experiences of my childhood, just as it has been for children around the world for generations. So, to have the opportunity to bring new life to the Narnia films with a new creative team is a career highlight. Our mission is to build TriStar Pictures as a home for filmmaker-driven literary and commercial movies, and this film represents a huge step forward for us. We’re thrilled to be working with Mark, Doug, Melvin, Vincent, and David as we adapt The Silver Chair.”
