Prince Caspian is Moving Ahead

Source: Comingsoon.net

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe has already earned $530 million worldwide -- nearly $70 million ahead of King Kong -- which is spurring plans for a sequel based on the next title, Prince Caspian.

Variety says Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media are currently working on a script and are expected to tap a director within a few weeks. Andrew Adamson directed the first film, but it's not confirmed he'll return for Prince Caspian.

The trade published a quote from Walden CEO Cary Granat, who said, "We're planning on starting production by the fourth quarter of next year." It's unclear when this interview took place. If it was before New Year's, "Prince Caspian" would start filming later this year. If not, Narnia fans have a long wait ahead of them.
