Mark Gordon planning to revive Chronicles of Narnia

It has been three years since we got the third Chronicles of Narnia film, Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and it appeared that the film series had faded away and died. The first film of the existing trilogy, The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, was a hit but it proved to be difficult to keep an audience.

We now have word that the Mark Gordon Company has paired with the C.S. Lewis Company and is taking over for Walden Media with their intention to finally release the fourth installment, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair. Walden Media had previously announced, while they were still attached, that they wanted to skip ahead to the sixth book, The Magician's Nephew. However, Walden Media and Narnia seemed to fade altogether giving no reason for another film.
The Silver Chair brings us less than a year ahead but decades ahead in Narnia. Aslan calls Eustace Stubb and Jill Pole back to help find Prince Caspian's son, Prince Rilian.

There is currently no writer or director attached along with no word on whether any previous cast members will be returning for a fourth installment.
The Mark Gordon Company has produced a number of films and television shows including Saving Private Ryan, Source Code, The Patriot, Grey's Anatomy, Criminal Minds, and Army Wives.

I am personally very excited for this. I love The Chronicles of Narnia and liked the movies as well. I was wondering when they would finally release a fourth movie.
