Read on to see who the producers of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair are eyeing for the upcoming project…
Millie Bobby Brown has been offered the lead role of Jill Pole in The Silver Chair. This time around, Naria is taking on a much different approach than the first Narnia movie, 2005’s The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.
Thanks to her breakout role as Eleven on Netflix’s Stranger Things, Millie Bobby Brown may be one of the most popular and in-demand child stars in the world. Since her performance in Eleven Brown has parlayed her talents in to a role in the upcoming Godzilla 2.
There is no confirmation if she has signed on to The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair as of yet.
This film basically picks up the stories of Narnia set decades after the events of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader. It also falls in line with the actual C.S. Lewis books.
The Silver Chair story centers on Jill Pole and the other lead character, Eustace Scrubb, who are both sent by Aslan to investigate the disappearance of King Caspian X’s only son, Prince Rilian.
Producer Mark Gordon has been developing this project since 2013, when he teamed up with The C.S. Lewis Company to develop The Silver Chair. Screenwriter David Magee (Life of Pi) came aboard to write the script in December 2013, although there hadn’t been much movement on the project until director Joe Johnston came aboard back in April. The Mark Gordon Company is producing alongside TriStar, although the Sony Pictures-based TriStar hasn’t announced a release date quite yet. Still, after more than four long years in development, it seems The Silver Chair is finally back on the right track.
We are looking forward to a new installment of Naria. What about you?
