C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia fantasy series will be reimagined on the big screen once again, as a film adaptation of The Silver Chair is in the works. Deadline reports that it's backed by TriStar Pictures, eOne and the Mark Gordon Company.

The Silver Chair will be financed by all three companies, with Sony (who owns TriStar Pictures) and eOne distributing. Mark Gordon (Grey's Anatomy, Quantico), C.S. Lewis’ stepson Douglas Gresham, Vincent Sieber and Melvin Adams are producing the film.

David Magee (the writer behind Life Of Pi and Finding Neverland) will also be penning the screenplay. The Silver Chair follows 2010's The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the first film of the series not co-produced by Disney that grossed over $415 worldwide.
