Narnia 3 could be filmed in Argentina.

Disney Channel Latin America constantly shows news and interviews of “The Chronicles of Narnia,” and on NarniaSpain we report on it. Recently, popular Mexican journalist Carla Medina did an interview with most of the cast and the producers of Narnia at the New York premiere.

In one of the interviews, Carla Medina asked Mark Johnson about the rumor that they would film the next movie in Latin America. He responded that this is true, and that they probably would film some scenes in our beloved Argentina! In any case this is still not definite.

Also, as all we know, pre-production has already begun in Mexico. Mexican newspapers buzzed with cool news: “80% of the film “The Chronicles of Narnia 3″ will be filmed in the Popotla sets in Rosarito over the next year, and it will have a considered cost of 100 million dollars. Oscar Escobedo, representative of the tourism bureau, confirmed that they are working with Walt Disney to make the film.”

Escobedo explained: “Disney offers us the opportunity to promote Baja California as a destination for film projects. Since Titanic, this important goal has never been achieved.”

During an eighteen month period, the team of “Narnia” will work in Baja Studios (previously owned by Fox), where “Titanic” and “Pearl Harbor” were made.

“Preproduction began several days ago. With Narnia, we would be finishing around one hundred projects, between trailers and shoots.”
