Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, The picture
"Amazing Grace" helmer Michael Apted is reported by Ain't It Cool News to have taken the director's seat for "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader."


The coveted chair finally is secured by Michael Apted as Ain't It Cool News has surprisingly brought in a scoop stating the English filmmaker has already been assigned to be the director of "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader."

The Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media's third installment of "Narnia" franchise, the project will be made based on C.S. Lewis' third published book of the series which finds Edmund and Lucy Pevensie helping Caspian to locate the seven banished lords of Narnia. Its predecessor, "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" is currently in production for a May 16, 2008 release with Andrew Adamson at helm.

Apted, best known for his work on the Up series of documentaries, first built his path in television, securing a traineeship at Granada Television where he began to work as a researcher before venturing into feature directing through "The Triple Echo" in 1972. Some of his notable film credits besides the latest one "Amazing Grace" are "Coal Miner's Daughter", "Nell", and "The World Is Not Enough."
