Joe Johnston To Direct 'Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair'

Sony is looking to bring Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair to the big screen, and they’ve hired Captain America: The First Avenger helmer Joe Johnston to get behind the camera to direct. Said to serve as a reboot for the franchise, the film will focus on Eustace Scrubb, who was played by Will Poulter previously, and will adapt the fourth novel in Lewis’ acclaimed series.

With a script from David Magee, Douglas Gresham, Vincent Sieber, Melvin Adams and Mark Gordon are on board to produce, and the latter had this to say about Johnston signing on:

He said “Joe is a wonderful storyteller who is equally at home in the biggest franchises and the most intimate character pieces,” Gordon said. “Because C.S. Lewis’ story is iconic and epic, but also tender, personal, and emotional, he’s the perfect choice to bring ‘The Silver Chair’ to the screen.”
