The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is one step closer to production: Michael Petroni is on board to write the screenplay for the third Chronicles of Narnia film. The franchise — which so far includes adaptations of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and Prince Caspian — appeared to have stalled this December when Disney backed out of co-financing the film, but 20th Century Fox stepped in to partner with Walden Media. Dawn could have a holiday 2010 release. [Variety]
