The Star eCentral: Movie Buzz

One more <i>Chronicles Of Narnia</i> in the works


The fourth film in the series will now be made, thanks to The Mark Gordon Company.

Aslan will roar on the big screen again.

The C.S. Lewis Company will partner with The Mark Gordon Company to jointly develop and produce a feature film adaptation of The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Silver Chair.

Plans for a big screen version of the fourth book in Lewis' fantasy series were delayed after the third film in the series, The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader, made slightly less at the box office than its producers had hoped, grossing north of US$400mil (RM1.28bil) on a US$155mil (RM496mil) budget.

Compounding matters, Walden Media, which produced the first three films, underwent a major restructuring this year and laid off a big chunk of its employees and announcing it will concentrate on third party productions.

In Gordon, C.S. Lewis Company gets a veteran producer who has worked on such films as Saving Private Ryan, Wonder Boys and Speed.

"Like many readers, both young and old, I am a huge fan of C.S. Lewis's beautiful and allegorical world of Narnia," Gordon said in a statement. "These fantasy stories inspire real-world passion among millions of devoted fans around the world. As we prepare to bring the next book to life, we are humbled and excited to contribute to the outstanding legacy of Narnia."

Mark Gordon and Douglas Gresham along with Vincent Sieber, the LA-based director of The C.S. Lewis Company, will serve as producers and will work with The Mark Gordon Company on developing the script. — Reuters

Cruella de Vil on the big screen


The scary villainess from 101 Dalmatians is set to have her own movie.

The villainess from 101 Dalmatians will be at the centre of a new Disney live-action feature, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

On the heels of Maleficent, arriving in theatres in 2014, Disney is once again resurrecting one of its wicked characters for a new film. This time, the studios are bringing back Cruella de Vil, the fur-loving, puppy-hating character from Dodie Smith's 1956 novel The Hundred And One Dalmatians.

The ruthless character first appeared on screen in Disney's 1961 animated adaptation of the book, complete with white and black hair and aggressively pointy features. In 1996, Glenn Close brought the character to the screen again in Disney's live-action adaptation. The actress is now one of the producers behind the forthcoming film featuring Cruella de Vil.

The film will be based on a screenplay by Aline Brosh McKenna, the screenwriter behind the adaptation of The Devil Wears Prada as well as Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella, arriving in theatres in 2015.

A live-action adaptation of Dodie Smith's novel The Hundred And One Dalmations was released in 1996. — Reuters
