“The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair” movie producer Douglas Gresham has given an update about the upcoming film. Read on for more details.

In a video interview posted three weeks ago at the franchise’s official Facebook account, Gresham said they are “still in the process of getting the screenplay right.”

According to Gresham, the process sometimes gets slow and long. However, he assured fans that they are “getting pretty close” in finishing the script.

“We’re still in the process of getting the screenplay right. And it’s often a long and slow process sometimes. But we’re getting pretty close,” Gresham said.

Gresham went on to say he was satisfied about the screenplay process and it was “looking really good.” He will also be making some few changes as well as organizing the storyline of “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair” movie.

“But I think it’s going to be wonderful,” Douglas Gresham said.

So far, David Magee is the only screenwriter hired for the young adult movie adaptation. He won the Satellite Award for Best Adapted Screenplay and a nomination for Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for “Life of Pi.”

Magee has also written “Finding Neverland” and was nominated for Golden Globe because of it.

Upon his installation as the writer of “The Chronicles of Narnia” sequel, Magee expressed his excitement and revealed that he was actually dreaming for it.

“I have always loved The Chronicles of Narnia and I endlessly imagined myself finding my own passage into Narnia someday,” Magee said.

No doubt this sequel is set to become another top notch, besides having an award winning screenwriter. TIME listed the novels of C.S. Lewis as one of “The 100 Best Young Adult Books of All Time.”

Furthermore, the final novel of the Narnia chronicles, “The Last Battle,” was given the highest mark of excellence in children’s literature, the prestigious Carnegie Award, Narnia.com reported.

As for the release date of “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair” movie, rumors are pointing to a 2016 timeline. Nevertheless, it should be taken with a grain of salt.

Douglas Gresham is the stepson of the late “The Chronicles of Narnia” novel series author, C.S. Lewis.
