Fox and Walden Team Up for Narnia

Variety announced it as official. As I predicted, Fox will partner with Walden to continue producing the next installment(s) of the wonderful Chronicles of Narnia series. I've been reading Voyage of the Dawn Treader and it should prove to be another hit. My only concern it the dramatically reduced budget, south of $150 million.

Due to recent safety threats they are not going to film this water wonderland movie at the Fox-owned Rosarito Mexico, home base of "Titanic" and "Master and Commander." Instead, they are going to Australia which will add to the overhead.

Fox will certainly have better results with Narnia than they did with Eragon. More as it develops...
