Ben Barnes on ‘The Silver Chair’

Edward Douglas from ComingSoon.net recently posted an interview with Ben Barnes (Caspian) about his upcoming film The Seventh Son which releases in February 2013. Here is a clip from the end:
“Hopefully it will hold me in good stead,” he quipped when we mentioned his previous experience with literary action epics from the last two movies based on C.S. Lewis’s “The Chronicles of Narnia.”
As far as that franchise, he feels two movies might be it for him as his character only appears in one more book, “The Silver Chair,” and in that one, he’s in his 70s.
“No more opportunity for me to go back and swashbuckle at 30 I don’t think but we’ll see,” he said. “It’s possible, but I think they might go and do ‘The Magician’s Nephew’ next anyway, which is like a prequel.”
Ben turned 30 in August. Caspian is 66 at the beginning of “The Silver Chair,” but his younger self makes an appearance at the end. Read the full interview here. Thanks to ‘Darin’ and ‘Karen’ for the alert.
