Default Re: Chronicles of Narnia - Voyage of the Dawn Treader



New Writer for Third Narnia Flick

Michael Petroni has come on board to write the next installment in The Chronicles of Narnia franchise - The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Petroni’s credits include The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys, Queen of the Damned and the upcoming Sarah Michelle Gellar thriller Possession.

In Voyage, Lucy and Edmund return to Narnia with their cousin Eustace where they meet up with Prince Caspian for a trip across the sea aboard the royal ship The Dawn Treader. Along the way they encounter dragons, dwarves, merfolk, and a band of lost warriors before reaching the edge of the world.

Ben Barnes, Skandar Keynes and Georgie Henley are reprising their roles as Caspian, Edmund and Lucy, respectively. Will Poulter (Son of Rambo) is joining the cast and will portray Eustace.

The film found new life at the end of January when Fox agreed to finance the project. In December Disney decided it wouldn’t be continuing to develop the fantasy franchise. When the third film was setup at Disney Steven Knight (Eastern Promises) was writing the screenplay.

The film is being directed by Michael Apted (Amazing Grace, The World Is Not Enough), with Mark Johnson and Andrew Adamson producing. A summer start date is being eyed for a holiday 2010 release.
Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
The night is falling
You have come to journey's end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore .

Children are a message that we send
to a time that we will never see.
