Narnia Director Passes the Baton
New Zealand filmmaker Andrew Adamson said after directing two Chronicles of Narnia epics, he is ready to hand the franchise to someone else.
“Michael Apted is directing the third one, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” Adamson recently told UPI while promoting the second Narnia film, Prince Caspian.
“I think (Apted is) up for the challenge.
“He’s very cognisant of what we’ve done and what we’re building and the places and locations we’ve established and, at the same time, he wants to make his own film.”
Adamson said one reason he loves the Narnia books and movies is because each story is so different.
“I think this film is very different than the last film I did. In some ways it looks like they could have been made by two entirely different people,” he said. [stuff]
