<i>Life of Pi</i> Screenwriter to Pen New <i>Chronicles of Narnia</i> Film

David Magee, the screenwriter behind Life of Pi and Finding Neverland, will write The Silver Chair, the next film in the Chronicles of Narnia series, according to Deadline.

“I have always loved The Chronicles Of Narnia and I endlessly imagined myself finding my own passage into Narnia someday”, Magee said in a press release. “All these years later, I’m getting to fulfill that wish just a little bit by writing the film adaptation of The Silver Chair and could not be more excited about it.”

Magee received the Academy Award nomination for “Best Adapted Screenplay” for his work on Life of Pi in 2012.

The Silver Chair will be fourth film in the Narnia series, following 2010’s The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
