Story by Jack Foley

A FOURTH Chronicles of Narnia film is in development, the C.S. Lewis Company announced on Tuesday.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair has been made pssible thanks to a deal between the CS Lewis Company and The Mark Gordon Company.

Mark Gordon and Douglas Gresham, stepson of series author CS Lewis, will serve as producers along with Vincent Sieber, director of the Los Angeles-based C.S. Lewis Company.

They will also develop the script, which has yet to be written.

Commenting in a statement, Gordon said: “As we prepare to bring the next book to life, we are humbled and excited to contribute to the outstanding legacy of Narnia.”

The Silver Chair takes place 50 years after the events of The Dawn Treader and is the first Narnia book without any of the Pevensie children.

This allows for the possibility of the franchise rebooting itself with an entirely new cast.

The first three Narnia films have grossed over $1.6 billion worldwide.

The original Disney-produced The Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe performed the strongest, earning $745 million internationally following its release in 2005.

Its two sequels, Prince Caspian (2008) and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010) took $419 million and $415 million, respectively.
