Apted To Direct Next Narnia Tale

Enigma filmmaker MICHAEL APTED is taking over from ADAM ADAMSON to direct the third installment in THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA series. Disney Pictures and Walden Media announced on Wednesday (20Jun07) that Apted, 66, will direct The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader, which is scheduled for release in 2009. Adamson is currently filming Prince Caspian in New Zealand - which is set for release next year (08), following the success of The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe in 2005. The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader and Prince Caspian are actually the fifth and fourth books respectively in C.S. Lewis' seven book trilogy, but filmmakers have chosen the order so the first movie's child actors can continue to act in their characters before they are too old.
