Ben Barnes should be jumping up and down right about now. 20th Century Fox is saving the Chronicles of Narnia franchise!
One month ago, Disney severed ties with Walden Media in co-financing the third movie, The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Variety is now reporting that Fox has taken over development and production. Wahoo!
The $140 million movie is expected to shoot in Australia and start as early as this summer. Prince Caspian cost $215 million to make and raked in $419 million worldwide. But that’s nothing compared to The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, which pulled in $745 million.
ALL HAIL, KING CASPIAN!
