Millie Bobby Brown is currently best known for playing Jane Ives, a.k.a. Eleven, on the hit Netflix series Stranger Things, but she’s also carving out a Hollywood career. In 2019, she’ll appear in Godzilla: King of the Monsters as Madison Russell, the daughter of Kyle Chandler and Vera Farmiga’s characters. Now it’s being reported that Brown could step into the world of fantasy after that, as she’s been offered a role in the next Chronicles of Narnia movie.
It’s been seven years since The Voyage of the Dawn Treader was released in theaters, but the Chronicles of Narnia film series is gearing up for a comeback with The Silver Chair. According to That Hashtag Show, Mille Bobby Brown is being eyed to play Jill, one of the movie’s lead characters. It’s unclear if Brown has accepted the part, but needless to say that if she did join the production, it would be a major win given that she’s one of the entertainment industry’s most popular child actors right now.
The Silver Chair, book, published in 1953, followed Jill Pole venturing into Narnia with Eustace Scrubb, the cousin of the Pevensie siblings (the original Chronicles of Narnia protagonists) who was introduced in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Together the two of them were tasked by Aslan to solve the mystery of King Caspian’s missing son. Since The Silver Chair will be a reboot of the original Narnia cinematic trilogy, that means a new actor will inherit the Eustace role from Will Poulter (although even if it were set in the same continuity, Poulter has clearly aged out of playing the character). The Rocketeer‘s Joe Johnston is attached to direct, and Johnston recently revealed that this will be his final time directing a feature film.
