It's been three years since The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader hit theaters. The following spring, Walden Media was said to be looking at The Magician's Nephew as the next film in the franchise from 20th Century Fox. However, since then we haven't heard any updates, and the franchise was presumed dead in the water. But now, The C.S. Lewis Company has announced a new deal with The Mark Gordon Company to bring The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair, the fourth book in the series, to the big screen. So would any original cast members from the first three films come back? More below!
Well, the only human character from the original films needed would be the original trio's cousin Eustace, played by Will Poulter (We're the Millers, The Maze Runner) in the third film. In the book, a new character named Jill and Eustace embark on a journey to find the son of the King Caspian, who has grown elderly and sad in the prince's absence. Their adventure takes them into the Underland where there lies "an evil more beautiful and more deadly than they ever expected." It's unclear of producers will try to bring Poulter back to reprise his role, especially now that he's a rising star and getting into action with The Maze Runner next year, but we're betting this will act as more of a reboot than a sequel. Thoughts?
