With the Chronicles of Narnia movies already three in with The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe (2005), Prince Caspian (2008) and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010), you’d imagine the next one would be the fourth installment.

Well you’d be wrong.


Producer Mark Gordon says the latest movie in the C.S. Lewis-based series, The Silver Chair, is currently being prepped and will be a reboot.

Wait, what?

Last we heard Life Of Pi writer David Magee jad finished the script (in July), so we assume it’s this that is being made.

Gordon  has said The Silver Chair will be going into production soon and added: “It’s all going to be a brand new franchise. All original. All original characters, different directors and an entire new team that this is coming from.”

We strongly suspect that this movie will not be a reboot per se, but rather simply part of the series that the other four movies belong to. The Silver Chair, as far as we understand – please tell us if we’re wrong – takes place long after the others, so while it will be completely different, it will still be in the same universe.

Probably. We think. Maybe.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
