CHRONICLES OF NARNIA Netflix Movies Reportedly Eyeing BARBIE Director Greta Gerwig To Helm

We're still waiting on official word, but several different sources are reporting that Greta Gerwig (Barbie, Little Women) is in line to direct Netflix's re-adaptations of The Chronicles of Narnia.

Netflix first announced its intention to re-adapt C.S. Lewis' beloved tales from The Chronicles of Narnia back in 2018, and it looks like we may finally have some movement on the endeavour.

According to WhatsOnNetflix.com (the report has since been backed up by several larger outlets), Barbie director Greta Gerwig is being eyed to helm two Narnia movies for the streaming service.

We've seen live-action takes on the classic fantasy adventure stories before, both on British television and in Disney's three movies (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader). Those films proved to be highly divisive, however, with many Lewis fans feeling that they failed to do the books justice.

Last we heard, Netflix had enlisted Disney-Pixar writer Matthew Alrich as a “creative architect” to oversee all development on the Narnia movies and TV shows. We have no idea if he's still involved.

It's assumed that these first two movies will adapt Wardrobe and Caspian, but there is speculation that Netflix may decide to shake things up a bit and focus on one of the later novels in the series first.

Gerwig is a highly in-demand actor/director, known for her work on the likes of Little Women, Lady Bird, Mistress America, and Frances Ha. Later this year, she'll star in Netflix's original movie White Noise, and also has the live-action Barbie film starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling on the way.
