Douglas Gresham, stepson of C.S. Lewis and executive producer of the Narnia films, has recently shared insight into the future of the Narnia film franchise.
According to The Lion’s Call, in a recent talk at Oxford, Gresham “was questioned on the future of the Narnia films” and “seems very keen to continue having them made.”
The moratorium period is now known to be 7 years, meaning another film cannot legally be made without Walden Media until 2018 (assuming the moratorium period began just after Voyage of the Dawn Treader‘s release). Gresham also indicated that he is interested in having future films made independently as opposed to hiring a studio such as Walden or Disney or Fox.
Book purists will be happy to know that Gresham is intent upon producing The Silver Chair next, not The Magician’s Nephew, and he expressed a wish to bring Andrew Adamson back as director.
In the meantime, Gresham says he is pursuing a film version of The Screwtape Letters.
No more Narnia until 2018? What do you think about that? Discuss in the comments!
