Netflix keeps creating great adaptations of comics and books, for example, the upcoming The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and The Witcher series. Now, they are turning their attention to make The Chronicles of Narnia into a TV series!

Entertainment One is working with Netflix to make the novels into a series and films. Deadline reports that Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer, Netflix says: 

 

C.S. Lewis’ beloved Chronicles of Narnia stories have resonated with generations of readers around the world. Families have fallen in love with characters like Aslan and the entire world of Narnia, and we’re thrilled to be their home for years to come.

 

This is also the first time that rights to all seven novels of the Narnia Universe have been bought.

 

The span of high grossing films such as The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005), Prince Caspian (2008) and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010), have made over $1.5 billion worldwide. The Narnia books themselves have sold 100 million copies and have been translated into forty-seven languages!

Netflix plans to essentially create a Narnia Universe, similar to Star Trek and DC Comics. The idea stemmed from the chief executive of Entertainment One and producer, Mark Gordon who has produced films and television shows such as Speed, Saving Private Ryan, Grey Anatomy and so many others! 

 

My biggest question now is who do you think should play the roles of Peter, Susan, Lucy, and Edmond? An offer has already been made to Millie Bobby Brown to play Jill Pole from the forth book!

Tom Hardy Confesses ‘Venom’ Might Be the “Least Comic-Book Movie” Ever!

The upcoming Sony Pictures film, Venom, will be hitting theaters this week, and with New York Comic-Con coming up, it is going to be an eventful weekend! Tom Hardy stars as Eddie Brock/Venom in the film, which is being directed by Ruben Fleischer.

 

The Southern Illinoisan reports that Tom Hardy’s interview with Collider expressed his true feelings about his role: “It just didn’t strike me… it’s the least comic book of the superhero world, if that makes sense?” Hardy also mentioned he never even read any of the Venom comics! But what attracted him to the role was the complexity of the main character.

Hardy said, “For me, what grasped me was the Jekyll-and-Hyde dynamic between interior conflict and how Venom kind of symbolizes the inside voice of self-will run riot, which has been given to an alien from outer space with a higher purpose in many aspects and then connected with a human being.” He explains that he used a different angle to get into the frame of mind of his character. Venom’s inner struggle with his alter ego is something many people can relate to in different ways.  

 

Besides reading a bunch of the comics to understand his character, Hardy confessed: “I’m not going to lie, I just thought he was a black Spider-Man. I didn’t really read comic books, so my information was limited.”  Hardy also admits turning to his ten year old son for some help with the role!
