|Directed by||Joe Johnston|
|Written by||David Magee|
|Based on||The Silver Chair by C.S Lewis|
|Distributed by||TriStar Pictures|
Production[edit | edit source]
After Walden Media's contract of the series' film rights expired in 2011, it was originally assumed that 2014 would be the earliest that production on another Narnia film could begin according to the moratorium placed on the C. S. Lewis estate's right to sell the books' film option. On October 1, 2013, The C.S. Lewis Company announced that it had entered into an agreement with the Mark Gordon Company to produce The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair, based on The Silver Chair. Mark Gordon and Douglas Gresham along with Vincent Sieber, the Los Angeles based director of The C.S. Lewis Company, would serve as producers and work with The Mark Gordon Company on developing the script. On December 5, 2013, it was announced that David Magee would write the screenplay.
In July 2014, the official Narnia website allowed the opportunity for fans to suggest names for the Lady of the Green Kirtle, the main antagonist. The winning name is to be selected by Mark Gordon and David Magee for use in the final script of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair.
While the film's producers have been calling the film a "reboot" to the series, in actuality this is referring to the fact that the film has a new creative team not associated with those who worked on the previous three films. The film itself is still considered to be sequel to the film adaptation of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. It was announced that Sony Pictures and Entertainment One would finance the fourth film with both Mark Gordon Company and C.S. Lewis Company. By April 2017, Joe Johnston was signed to direct the film. Principal photography was scheduled to begin in late 2018, but in October 2018, it was announced that Netflix and the C. S. Lewis Company had made a multi-year agreement to develop a new series of film and TV adaptations of The Chronicles of Narnia, leaving the fate of The Silver Chair unknown.
