David Magee Still Working on Script

Posted June 23, 2015 11:42 am by Glumpuddle

Update: It was not the real David Magee that tweeted the news that the screenplay for The Silver Chair was complete. He is still hard at work adapting C.S. Lewis’ beloved classic, and we wish him the best.

    Great news for the time being! And hopefully, this will not be the last of the film news to come in the near future.

    • Aaron Roadnight says:

      I will only believe that they are "actually going" to do the Silver Chair when it has an official release date and a preview. Seriously the people making Narnia movies should speed them up!!!!!!!!!!!

      • waggawerewolf27 says:

        No, because of the moratorium there is no point in going any faster. David Magee may as well take his time and make sure that the script is A OK.

    • Derek says:

      I pray they keep to Lewis’ Spiritual message as well. They did it in the Lion, Witch and wardrobe. From there they botched every other movie. Those books are fantasy and an Alogary of the bible.

  • Rogin says:

    Yes!! I get such a rush when there is news, thank you for confirming the news Narniaweb!

    P.S I think you meant to say @davidmagee62 not 26. 😉

  • Rogin says:

    And his public Twitter is mageedavid_

  • Impending Doom says:

    Very exciting news to know that the script we’ll (most likely) be seeing on the big screen is completed! Hopefully they’ll be able to find a director that is equally passionate about the project as David Magee is.

  • DamselJillPole says:

    I’m literally crying at work right now. This makes me extremely happy to read. Hope they get to casting soon.

  • Trillian says:

    Oh my goodness, been so long!! Guys, I miss old times when we’d all race to see who commented first on NarniaWeb updates 😛

  • jillpole1 says:

    This is so exciting!! Can’t wait to see what news we get next. 🙂

  • wolflloversk says:

    *squeels in joy* 😀

  • Amisadai says:

    Wow! I can’t wait!!!!!I am soooo excited! I can’t wait to watch the film! The narnias are the best movies in the whole world. I could watch them forever. 🙂

  • Reepicheep775 says:

    Rejoice! Just the way Magee worded his message makes me think this isn’t a movie stuck in Development Hell… though that might be wishful thinking.

  • narnia fan 7 says:

    Vary exciting! it’s nice too have it confirmed!,Hopefully we’ll start geting news more frequently.

  • Liberty Hoffman says:

    OH YAY!!
    I have mixed feelings! I want this so badly! I hope it happens!!

  • The Rose-Tree Dryad says:

    Hooray! I’m so thrilled that this was finally confirmed! (Thank you NarniaWeb staff for being so conscientious and waiting for official confirmation before posting!) I love what he has had to say about his involvement in the script — it sounds like he loves the story as much as we do, and that’s extremely exciting. Looking forward to watching this film develop over the next few years!

  • Tolewis says:

    Anyone know anything about casting (although it’s a little early!)

  • Benjamin says:

    Well it is good to hear something!

  • GlimGlum says:

    Yay! 😀

  • CarAslan says:

    Something tells me that they have already long begun the casting for all the characters and are just keeping everything hush hush for now. I heard it took years to cast the four Pevensies so I’m sure they would be smart enough to start early.

    Unless of course you need the director/producer to supervise the casting. But I doubt that..

    good luck Silver Chairr! Absolutely cannot wait for Horse and His Boy!

    • Alex McFuille says:

      Uh i think a director is needed before casting begins. but who knows how the industry really works.

      anyway YASSSSS the horse and his boy has always been my favorite narnia book! Cannot wait to see shasta and aravis come to life and the horses! Although i think they should change the name to ‘Narnia and The North’. C.S Lewis liked that name too.

  • Silver the Wanderer says:

    Excellleennttt! Hopefully this means we’ll get some more news soon?
    ARISE, NARNIA FANDOM! It’s been a while. c:

  • Garenex says:

    Definitely looking forward to following the progress of this film as it continues to develop.

  • sgk474 says:

    So exciting! It will be brilliant to have another Narnia film at the cinema…Think I’ll read ‘The Silver Chair’ to my next class – get them excited 🙂

  • Andrew says:

    Yes!!!! Great news!

  • Roger says:

    I am glad everyone else is excited. I am still concerned that they will turn this into an action movie and forget the wonderful story in the book. Bah humbug.

    • Anhun says:

      David Magee has never yet written a dumb action movie. They might include action, but the dialogue should be good.

  • waggawerewolf27 says:

    Just in the nick of time. I was beginning to think the script would never be written.

  • rabadash II (the even more ridiculous) says:

    WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Yeah, now that’s what I’m talking about! Narnia news! A finished script! Soon, Criminal Minds: Narnia, will be all good and made! Woohoo!

  • Golg says:

    Wonderful! I needed some news today!

    I loved Finding Neverland, but never watched Life of Pi. I can trust his draft of the script, I just hope Executives do not meddle TOO much in this.

  • Anfinwen says:

    Oh, how I’d love to get my hands on a copy of that script! I guess we’ll just have to wait patiently.

  • Dab Oliveira says:

    Oh my God! I’m so happy and excited at the same time!

  • Anna's Sister says:

    At last! Hopefully we will start getting more news. It makes waiting way more bearable.

  • The Rose-Tree Dryad says:

    So strange! I’m really mystified that they didn’t address it before now, what with all the buzz online surrounding it.

    • wolfloversk says:

      Agreed, Rose… NarniaFans also thought they had it confirmed…

      So I’m just really confused…

  • Golg says:

    NO-O-O-O-O!!!!

  • Impending Doom says:

    It was fun while it lasted.

  • narnia fan 7 says:

    Well… at least we know the film is still going forward.

  • marta says:

    Does anyone know if there are going to be any auditions??? please let me know if you have any mews!

    • coracle says:

      Reply to Marta: Narniaweb does not have any way to help you get auditions for movies.
      Your best path is to get some acting experience (classes, local theatre, etc) and an agent. Then ask the agent to put you forward for auditions.

  • Eliseo says:

    I’ll be worried if I don’t hear anything by the end of 2015. I’m still ok so far

  • Winding Arrow says:

    I’m super excited to finally hear something!!!!!!!! Does anyone know around what time do they start casting or have more updates???????

  • cs lewis fan 1 says:

    I have been waiting for a new Narnia movie for soooooo long! I’m so excited:)
