Variety.com has reported that Prince Caspian is in the planning stages.

Walden CEO Cary Granat told Daily Variety that the “Narnia” story of a fractured family coming together has resonated in every market.

“The worldwide audience has genuinely connected with the story’s emotions from Indonesia to Israel,” he added. “And in markets where the ‘Narnia’ stories aren’t well known, Disney’s done a brilliant job of marketing.”

The success of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” the first published in the C.S. Lewis series but second chronologically, is spurring plans for a sequel based on the next title, “Prince Caspian.” Granat said work on a script is under way, with plans to tap a director within a few weeks.

“We’re planning on starting production by the fourth quarter of next year,” Granat said.

It’s unclear whether this statement was given in December or January, so Granat could be referring to the film production beginning in either 2006 or 2007. You can go here to read the complete article.
