The Chronicles Of Narnia Is Alive And Filming In Oz
Itís hard to be a big fan of Jesus lions, but I suppose thereís an audience for that. Whatís endlessly hard to get, though, is that Jesus lions are completely acceptable in childrens' cinema but the atheistic themes in The Golden Compass were a little too much. But thatís neither here nor there because it seems like weíll be getting at least two more hours of a lion savior.
According to ComingSoon.net, despite rumors that it wouldnít end up happening, principal photography has started on The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader in Queensland, Australia. The movie will follow Edmund, Lucy and their cousin Eustace as they go on an adventure to Aslanís Country by sea in some old ship to save Narnia. Michael Apted is directing with a projected release of December 2010.
While the last movie didnít exactly meet box office expectations, it eventually doubled its budget with international sales. Itís hard to see this series making it through C.S. Lewisí seven books, though. Itís apparent that Fox wanted their own Harry Potter with this franchise but with ticket sales already falling, itíd be hard to imagine seeing The Silver Chair.
