Mark Gordon

Aslan

Well, what do you know? Just when you thought the Chronicles of Narnia had exited the fantasy world movie game with 2010’s The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, here they come again with another adventure through the wardrobe doors. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair, the next book in the series (and by far its most superior, if you were to ask young-me) has been announced by the C.S. Lewis and Mark Gordon Companies as the fourth film. For those focusing on Lord of the Rings during their formative years, this volume is set directly after Dawn Treader in “the real world,” but decades later in Narnia. It focuses on two children (one is Eustace from Dawn Treader) who are summoned from England by Aslan to solve the mystery of the missing Prince Rilian. Like all Narnia stories, it’s not quite clear why English schoolchildren are the best people for this quest, but then again, this world’s highest authority is a talking Jesus-lion, so all bets are off the table.

This past March, the Mark Gordon-produced, Ben Ripley-written, Duncan Jones-directed science fiction thriller Source Code hit theaters to both critical and commercial success. So much commercial success apparently that the film is being commissioned by Gordon and CBS for a TV adaptation without Jones or Ripley involved. According to EW, the series will focus on “three former federal agents who are part of a top-secret program. Each week, they’ll use “Source Code” technology to jump into the consciousness of people involved in tragic events.” Clearly that’s a fairly big leap from the film where the main protagonist (Jake Gyllenhaal) had no clue that he was inside the Source Code. The series will mark the first time ABC Studios will produce an off-network show. But as this will clearly be more of a procedural, it will fit right in at CBS who has actually been taking stabs lately at more high concept versions of the genre (like Person of Interest).
