Another Narnia Movie on the Way?
The Christian Post reports that it'll be The Magician's Nephew that gets adapted next (as opposed to The Silver Chair, which apparently had been speculated by fans).
"We are starting to talk to Fox and talk to the C.S. Lewis estate now about the Magician's Nephew being our next film," said Michael Flaherty, co-founder and president of Walden Media.
The last film, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, only made around $107 million domestically. But it's the overseas market where the money is at, apparently, as The Post adds that Dawn Treader recently hit the $300 million mark there.
Vague high-school English class memories (and Wikipedia) tell us that The Magician's Nephew is a prequel to the first book, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and deals with the creation of Narnia. So it's a reboot!
