Assigning the task of adapting the novel for the screen to two-time Oscar nominee David Magee, TriStar will partner with The Mark Gordon Company and The C.S. Lewis Company on the project. TriStar’s parent company Sony as well as Entertainment One will handle distribution for the film:
“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.”
