TriStar Pictures, eOne, and the Mark Gordon Company are breathing new life into C.S. Lewis’ “Chronicles of Narnia” series as the three will co-produce a new installment — “The Silver Chair.”

The film will be financed by TriStar, eOne, and the Mark Gordon Company, with Sony and eOne distributing the movie. Mark Gordon, C.S. Lewis’ stepson Douglas Gresham, Vincent Sieber, and Melvin Adams will produce the film.

David Magee is adapting the script.

This will be the third studio and fourth go around for the series with Disney producing the first two and Fox handling the most recent film, “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.” The seven novels in the series have sold more than 100 million copies worldwide.

Nicole Brown and Hannah Minghella will oversee the project for TriStar. Sara Smith is developing the project for the Mark Gordon Company.

Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
