Saorise Ronan: I was asked to be in Barbie but I couldn’t do it because I was doing [The Outrun]…
Interviewer: Are you giving Greta a call saying “The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe… I can get in there! I can get in the snow.”
Saorise Ronan: Yeah, (nodding) yes.
Interviewer: Okay, so we might see you in Narnia?
Saorise Ronan: We have that kind of relationship where I’m like “so I’ll be in the next one!” I’m so happy for them, that [Barbie] did well. I’m so delighted. But it didn’t feel right that we were away from one another. So even if I’m just making tea in Narnia. I don’t really care.
Here is a clip of Ronan in Gerwig’s Little Women:
Ronan has been nominated for 4 Academy Awards.
Gerwig is set to write and direct “at least” two Narnia movies for Netflix. At this time, the titles of the films have not been announced.
While the conversation does not confirm any official involvement in a Narnia adaptation, this exchange will certainly have fans speculating.
