The adventures of Narnia are heading back to the big screen, after it was confirmed a fourth film is in the pipeline.
The Mark Gordon Company and the CS Lewis Company have struck a deal to jointly develop and produce a film based on the fourth book in Lewis's fantasy series, The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Silver Chair, according to reports.
Mark Gordon and the author's stepson Douglas Gresham will produce along with Vincent Sieber, director of the CS Lewis Company.
Gresham said in a statement: "I have a great deal of respect for Mark Gordon's work and am confident that together we can bring the beauty and magical delight that Narnia engenders in the hearts of those who read the books to the screen in The Silver Chair."
The new instalment will follow 2005's The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, 2008's Prince Caspian and The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader (2010).
So far there is no word on whether any of the previous cast members will reprise their roles.
The Silver Chair is set 50 years after the Dawn Treader and is the first Narnia book without any of the Pevensie children, who were previously played by Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, William Moseley and Anna Popplewell.
The Silver Chair's returning characters include Aslan (voiced by Liam Neeson in the first three movies), Eustace Scrubb (played by Will Poulter in Dawn Treader), and the elderly King Caspian (who Ben Barnes played as a young prince in the last two films).
