Gregson-Williams to score Narnia adventure:

The prolific Harry Gregson-Williams has landed yet another major scoring assignment – perhaps his most prestigious so far. He will compose the music for Disney’s and Walden Media’s The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe based on the novel by C.S. Lewis. The film is directed by Andrew Adamson with whom Gregson-Williams just worked on Shrek 2 as well as its popular 2001 predecessor.

“The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” is the second and best-known novel in C.S. Lewis’ seven-part ‘Chronicles of Narnia’ series. The film adaptation will be a live-action film and is director Andrew Adamson’s first helming foray into non-animation territory. His previous credits include visual effects supervising on live action pics such as Batman and Robin and A Time to Kill. No cast has been announced for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe yet, but the film is set to premiere by Christmas 2005.

Harry Gregson-Williams recently scored Tony Scott’s Man on Fire, currently showing in cinemas. His other upcoming assignments include DreamWorks’ Madagascar and the sequel Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.
