    After so many years of watching and waiting, to finally see a filmmaker acknowledge an upcoming Narnia project… it’s starting to sink in that this could actually be happening for real!

    I’m sure we’ll hear more news along the way! We may hear an announcement on what two Narnia films she’ll write and direct before too long.

    Two thoughts….

    Happy Birthday Ms. Gerwig!!!

    And the fact she didn’t deny it says it all. We have a director for 100% sure.

    Hi NarniaWeb,
    Do we know of any open auditions yet for the roles? For example, one for Jill Pole if the Silver Chair is one of Greta’s films? I am a UK based teen with an agent/agency and am super interested!

    @Eden Breslin I don’t know if there’s any open auditions for roles yet! It might depend on what two films Greta Gerwig will write and direct! She could end up directing all seven though! I’m sure we’ll get an announcement before too long!

    I had a feel she’s going to be good with directing Narnia

  10. Very. Ex. Cite. ing!
    Her smile while she nodded, communicated that she accepted the theory she is directing Narnia. Maybe her contract with Netflix says she can’t comment on it yet.
