'Silver Chair' Possible Forth 'Narnia' Installment

Cary Granat gives an update on the 'Chronicles' series.
Walt Disney and Walden Media have announced a May 16th, 2008 release date for their upcoming sequel The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. And they also have marked May 7th, 2010 as the release date of their third installment The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. But what are Walden Media's plans after these two projects hit theaters?

Cary Granat, president and co-founder of Walden Media, recently told Variety about his plans for the future:

Hopes are highest for "Prince Caspian," which will cost at least $100 million. Granat promises that the battle-filled sequel is easily distinguishable from its predecessor and the third pic on the sked, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

Producers had announced at Comic-Con in July that auds could expect one "Narnia" installment each May for the next few years. Granat is committing publicly to only four or five, saying that "Silver Chair" might be the best bet for the fourth, followed by "Magician's Nephew," but he admits that there are a multitude of possibilities.

"There are a lot of stories to be taken from the seven books," he notes.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian was released May 16th, 2008 and stars Ben Barnes, Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, William Moseley, Anna Popplewell, Sergio Castellitto, Peter Dinklage, Warwick Davis. The film is directed by Andrew Adamson.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader was released December 10th, 2010 and stars Ben Barnes, Skandar Keynes, Georgie Henley, Will Poulter, Bill Nighy, Gary Sweet, Arthur Angel, Tony Nixon. The film is directed by Michael Apted.

    This will be a great movie! I just don't understand why, if they are going to do so many of the books, why did they do Wardrobe IN PLACE of Nephew and not in chronological order??? Now we will have all of the MTV worshipers thinking this is the real order and make fools of themselves.

    Waterworld, lol. True, money doesn't guarantee extraordinary.

    Waterworld
    Final Fantasy
    Cleopatra
    Evan Almighty
    etc.

    But as long as Andrew Adamson is at helm then I don't have too many worries.
