[21.11.2004] Bei gibt es ein Interview mit Amy Lee von Evanescence...
[...] Lee has also been working on music for the upcoming film "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe," inspired by the children's book by C.S. Lewis. The dark and morose tale, about four children who discover a magical land in the clutches of an evil witch, not only was a childhood favorite of Lee's, but its aesthetic suits the gothic-leaning singer perfectly.
"I love the kind of stranger children's stuff," she said. "I think that's very much what our music is inspired by. Not only death and the morbid stuff, but that it comes from the perspective of a child and things relating to childhood, because that's what I went through."
Lee was offered a small role in the film, currently in production in New Zealand, but considering the role she requested, the film's producers may have been too freaked out to give her a part.
"They were like, 'Do you want to do a cameo?' And I was like, 'Hell yeah! Let me die. I want to be somebody who gets murdered.' So I don't think that's going to happen."

[20.11.2004] Bei AICN gibt es Insider-Infos von einer Präsentation...
[...] Disney is going to make a franchise out of these. The presentation focused on the history of the books. We do get to see the children. One photo of the White Witch with icicles out of the top of her head, sort of like a crown. WETA will be doing the creatures in this one. That's great news. The showed a short animatic of a possible CG battle. If you can picture the Battle at Pellnor Fields from ROTK with minotaurs, centaurs, and griffins, that's what it looked like. [...]

The four young stars in Andrew Adamson's The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe have finally revealed themselves to the world [...]
The actors are: Georgie Henley, 9, from London, who plays the lead character Lucy; Skandar Keynes, 12, also from London, who plays Edmund; Anna Popplewell, 15, from West Yorkshire, who plays Susan; and William Moseley, 17, from Gloucestershire, who plays the eldest brother Peter.
Popplewell, the veteran of the group, has appeared in five previous movies, including Girl with a Pearl Earring and Mansfield Park, as well as three television series. Keynes has played a young Enzo Ferrari in an Italian biographical movie.
These are the first movie roles for Moseley and Henley, who despite her youth, has been a regular participant in England's Wharfedale Festival of Performing Arts. [...] The Hillsborough location will serve as the grounds of the country mansion where Lucy finds the wardrobe portal to the Kingdom of Narnia. The mansion which will seen in the movie will be computer generated. [...]
Production manager Tim Coddington said everything is on schedule and they have another ten days of outdoor shooting to get through in Auckland before the crew moves to the South Island in mid-October. Most of the filming has been conducted on the indoor set built in the old Hobsonville air force base.
James Cosmo, who played Campbell in Braveheart and Mr Renton in Trainspotting, has been confirmed for the role of Father Christmas.
He will join the other cast members so far named: Tilda Swinton (the White Witch), Dawn French (the voice of Mrs Beaver), James McAvoy (Mr Tumnus) and Rupert Everett (the voice of The Fox). [...]

Work has reportedly begun on a script for a second movie in the C.S. Lewis Narnia series.
Mark Zoradi, president of Buena Vista International, Disney's foreign distributor, told film website Screen Daily that it was an ideal time to begin work on the next screenplay.
If The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe was successful, he said, Disney might decide to film the next two at the same time.
"In my nearly 25 years at Disney, I've never seen the company so energised so early about a film."
The new script may be Prince Caspian, Lewis' second Narnia novel, although there is debate over the best order in which to read the series.
New Zealander Andrew Adamson, director of the Shrek movies, began filming for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe at the old Hobsonville airbase on Monday.
The Disney-Walden production reportedly boasts a budget of between $150 million and $230 million, making the project the biggest earner to hit Auckland since the America's Cup.
Filming continues in Auckland until October, then moves to the South Island and the Czech Republic before the movie's scheduled release at the end of next year.

Makers of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe have been told they can't bring into New Zealand the 12 reindeer needed to pull the Ice Queen's sled.
Filming of the $170 million production started last week. The animals, which also pull Santa's sled in one scene, are now likely to be created by Peter Jackson's Weta Workshop special effects department.
Film-maker Lamp-Post Productions hit a speed bump on the road to Narnia when it applied to the Ministry of Argiculture and Forestry for permission to bring in the reindeer and eight wolf cross-breeds. The ministry was happy with wolves in the Auckland studio - which has been set up on the former Hobsonville airbase - but drew the line at reindeer.
Dr Kerry Mulqueen, national manager of import management, said the United States reindeer population was suffering from the potentially deadly "Q Fever".
The wolves also had a rough ride - they had to be cleared by Waitakere City Council and the Environmental Risk Management Agency. The council cleared the pack, but Erma approval is still needed. [...]

[...] Waitakere City Council has no problems allowing a pack of 10 North American wolves onto its turf to be filmed as "witches minions" for the C.S. Lewis classic The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. [...]
The film’s North Island Location Manager Peta Sinclair says that the wolves will be "under tight regulations set by MAF, as their welfare will be of the utmost importance." Conditions have been set as to how the animals are penned, transported and handled while on set. As soon as their scenes are over they will be shipped home.
Mr Sinclair says the wolves have been trained to work in a controlled environment. They will feature as minions of the white witch in the film version of mystical land of Narnia, a land where there are no humans, only mythical and real animals. [...]

He will compose the music for Disney's and Walden Media's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe based on the novel by C.S. Lewis. The film is directed by Andrew Adamson with whom Gregson-Williams just worked on Shrek 2 as well as its popular 2001 predecessor. [...]

While filming was scheduled to begin in late June or early July, Adamson said casting was far from completed.
Executive producer Philip Steuer, who most recently worked on The Alamo, said an 18-month global search had been made for the movie's young lead actors "and we are closing in on someone for the White Witch". [...]

The film company behind the upcoming production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe has denied rumours that Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman is poised to play a leading role. [...]
Adamson's latest epic will be filmed mainly in Auckland but some scenes will be shot in the South Island.
The arrival of Kidman in Christchurch last week, and a helicopter tour she took over the Canterbury high country, had fuelled speculation that she would play a leading role in the film.
However, Walden Media issued a statement denying rumours that Kidman was involved.
"It's a project that we're all very excited about, but unfortunately this is just not true. Hopefully we'll have some exciting news soon," company spokeswoman Alison Lehrer said. [...]
Lehrer said filming of the multimillion dollar movie would begin this year in New Zealand and the Czech Republic. [...]

Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman flew into Christchurch this week on a top secret visit to tour locations for New Zealand's latest fantasy epic The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
The glamorous star of recent films, The Hours and Cold Mountain, arrived early on Thursday morning and took part in a whirlwind tour of Canterbury's high country in a helicopter.
One of the locations paid particular attention was Flock Hill station near Arthurs Pass where there were several sightings of the actress and accompanying crew.
The visit has firmed up rumours Kidman has signed for a major role in the film which is being brought to the big screen by Kiwi producer-director Andrew Adamson, who also produced the Oscar-winning animated film Shrek.
Adamson's latest epic, based on the C S Lewis classic, will be filmed mainly in Auckland but some scenes will be shot in the South Island.
At 178cm tall, the pale, imposing Kidman, 36, is thought to be perfect for the role of the White Witch, who in the book puts a spell on Narnia so that it is always winter and never Christmas.
Kidman has often been connected with the film and is known to have taken her children, Isabella, 10, and Connor, eight, to a stage play of the famous book. [...]

[02.03.2004] Bei CS! gibt es eine Pressemeldung von Disney...
In February, Disney Consumer Products chairman Andy Mooney briefly hinted in a speech that the studio might be distributing The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, now Walt Disney Pictures has made it official. The studio announced today it has entered into an agreement with Walden Media to co-finance and distribute the long-awaited motion picture adaptation of the first book published in C.S. Lewis' famed series. The live-action film will be directed by Andrew Adamson (Shrek, Shrek 2) and is scheduled to be released Christmas, 2005, by Walt Disney Pictures. The agreement allows for the continuation of the partnership for future films in the series. [...]
Douglas Gresham, stepson of C.S. Lewis, said, "Fans of the series have been waiting for generations for a film that faithfully adapts the Narnia books for the screen. Disney and Walden are a perfect match for the magical world that C.S. Lewis created, and we're as excited to see the movie as everyone else is."
A classic series of seven novels that have sold over 85 million copies worldwide, C.S. Lewis' "The Chronicles of Narnia" began with the publication of "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" in 1950. Six more novels (including the prequel, "The Magician's Nephew," and the sequels, "The Horse and His Boy," "Prince Caspian," "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader," "The Silver Chair" and "The Last Battle") would follow in the next six years. The final title in the series, "The Last Battle," was awarded the highest mark of excellence in children's literature, the prestigious Carnegie Award.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe [...] is expected to start preparations, including obtaining stage space and personnel, in Auckland early in 2004. [...]
The film is one of the first beneficiaries of the Large Budget Screen Production Grant (LBSPG) scheme announced in June.
The scheme is designed to remove some of the financial disadvantages New Zealand faces in attracting investment in screen production and film compared with other locations, including Australia.
"The LBSPG scheme is designed to encourage valuable investment in New Zealand - the type of investment that creates opportunities for employment and the learning of new skills for individuals, with the added advantage of raising the whole country's visibility on the world stage," Mr Anderton said.
The production in New Zealand of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, a significant proportion of which is expected to be filmed in the South Island, is expected to qualify for expense grants under the LBSPG scheme.

[...] The film will NOT be called "The Hundred Year Winter." That is their codename, ala "Blue Harvest" for Return of the Jedi. All materials have been marked as such except the script, but I was told this first hand.
Additionally, the script was lying around the office, and while I didn't have a chance to read it, I did read some of the correspondences between the various executives about the state of the script - Ann Peacock's draft. Generally speaking, most of them weren't happy with it, and despite casting going on for the children (they've got a huge collection of albums full of potentials), they're still doing heavy, heavy rewriting.

New Zealand Television News Show Holmes featured an article on The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, which is set to filmed in Hobsonville, Auckland.
New Zealand Director Andrew Adamson of Shrek fame will be filming almost all of the film at the Hobsonville Airbase and the Defence Quarters located there. The South Island will give up its identity of Middle Earth, as it will be the new star of Narnia.
The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe will feature a largely American cast and production is to start sometime next year, with a December 2005 release for the USA and New Zealand. Surprisingly enough, Peter Jackson's King Kong will be released in cinemas also in December 2005 - so there will be two New Zealand epics battling off!
The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe will be the second US film to qualify for the New Zealand government's new film grants scheme. The first film to qualify was Boogeyman, a horror movie from the producer of Spider-Man, Sam Raimi.
Special Effects Studio WETA, who have done all effects for the Lord of the Rings Trilogy will do effects for both King Kong and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. [...]

Um Neuseeland als Produktionsstandort für Big-Budget-Projekte wieder attraktiver zu machen, nachdem Steuererleichterungen gekappt wurden, kündigte der Minister für wirtschaftliche Entwicklung Jim Anderton eine neue Art der Belohnung an: Produzenten, die mehr als 50 Mio. Neuseelanddollar (etwa 25 Mio. Euro) in Neuseeland ausgeben, sollen künftig 12,5 Prozent davon zurückbekommen. Insbesondere Peter Jackson, der seine "Herr der Ringe"-Trilogie in Neuseeland drehte, und Andrew Adamson drängten auf eine solche Initiative. Adamson hofft, auf diese Weise alsbald die aufwändige Verfilmung von C. S. Lewis' Fantasyroman "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" aus den "Chronicles of Narnia", in Neuseeland realisieren zu können. Mit diesem Schritt versucht Neuseeland gegenüber Australien und Kanada als Produktionsstandort konkurrenzfähig zu bleiben.

Andrew Adamson, a New Zealander who won the best animated film Oscar for Shrek, which he co-directed, wants to shoot some of his next film in New Zealand. [...]
Adamson said if The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe were shot here, filming was likely to be this summer. While he had considered shooting snow-bound scenes in New Zealand those would be shot in the northern hemisphere.
Adamson scouted from Dunedin to Cape Reinga for suitable locations, much of the time by helicopter. He looked around Wellington, but was not sure if the region would end up in the film.
"Peter Jackson's kind of tapped out a lot of those locations," he said.

Doug Gresham, the step-son of C.S. Lewis gave a lecture last night and 'Jon' was in attendance: "He was asked what his opinion was of the forthcoming live-action Narnia movies. He said "I rather think they are going to be great... since it was my idea." He said that he had just inked the deal that morning to give a green light for production but didn't want to reveal studio names as "that would all come out in the press soon." He said that he would be co-producing it and Andrew Adamson would be directing. His main goal was that the special effects would not be the star of the show but instead, it would be his father's story. 'Never change the words of the master'". 'Lord of the Rings' tool/FX makers Weta have the contract to handle the film's technical elements whilst Andrew Adamson ("Shrek") will direct with a mid-2004 release planned.

[...] For the first time ever, the BBC production of C.S. Lewis’ "The Chronicles Of Narnia" are coming to DVD-Video courtesy of Home Vision Entertainment in a beautiful three disc set or sold individually in three volumes. The three-disc set is the way to go if you are going to buy all three films. It features each adventure on its own dual layered DVD with disc two divided into two parts for "Prince Caspian" and "The Voyage Of Dawn Trader." Within the packaging is an insert containing liner notes and "Narnia Facts," a cardboard insert with colorful illustrations by Al Brandtner, and a recipe for "Turkish Delight." All three discs feature still galleries and interactive trivia games that yield a special code for access to prizes online at the Home Vision Narnia Web Page. Disc one also features a 9-minute excerpt from the British Literary TV Magazine Program "Bookworm" on C.S. Lewis.
Each program is presented in the original (1.33:1) BBC broadcast aspect ratio and while the quality is not perfect, it is quite good and all three discs feature English Two-Channel Monaural Soundtracks. Unfortunately there are no captions for the hearing impaired encoded on to these discs, which I think is a sad loss for young viewers who despite a hearing impairment could have enjoyed these fantastic stories on screen as well.

Walden Media has signed director Andrew Adamson (Shrek) to helm the first live action feature film adaptation of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. [...]
"As we've seen with 'Lord of the Rings' and 'Harry Potter,' bringing to the screen a literary fantasy classic, beloved by millions of readers, requires both a reverence for the original material and a rich imagination to create a realistic fictional world," offered Cary Granat, chief executive officer of Walden Media. "Andrew Adamson knows better than anyone how to create magic on-screen and tell a story which touches the heart of an audience. His expertise in visual effects, animation and live action will be critical to a fantasy work of this magnitude."
"Narnia was such a vivid and real world to me as a child, as it is to millions of other fans. I share Walden's excitement in giving those fans an epic theatrical experience worthy of their imaginations, and driving a new generation toward the works of C.S. Lewis," offered Adamson. "Making a film that crosses generations is a far easier task when the source material resonates such themes as truth, loyalty and belief in something greater than yourself." [...]

Buried in a story about James Cameron’s new IMAX documentary GHOSTS OF THE ABYSS comes this nugget: A new version of C.S. Lewis’ classic THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE is currently being developed by Cary Granat and his Walden Media company.
Granat just finished connecting Cameron’s movie with Disney’s distribution, so there’s a good possibility that Granat’s version of WARDROBE could make it onto the big screen via Disney’s studio.
Doing things right, Granat snagged the rights to all of C.S. Lewis’ CHRONICLES OF NARNIA books, the seven part children’s book series which is a metaphor for Christianity.

I wanted to inform you that I checked with my contact at The C. S. Lewis Company and there have been no negotiations with Disney - they haven't even been approached by them. The film rights for the Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe are still with Paramount, and have been for several years. The C. S. Lewis Company, however, has been weighing other options should Paramount revert their rights.

[15.11.2001] Harry von AICN spekuliert über eine mögliche Verfilmung von "Die Chroniken von Narnia"...
Personally, I would kill for DREAMWORKS to get the rights, give the project to the Brizzi Brothers, who recently defected from Disney Animation, and finance a series of the most amazing fantasy animated films ever made!
What do you think? If you could magically place this property in the hands of anyone in the world.... where would you place it? Should DISNEY win? Should Peter Jackson get to it? Is this something that Ron Howard should go after? Where do you see it fitting best?
