The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian has been underperforming at the box office. I don’t know WHY, because it was an amazing movie, but I guess that’s irrelevant at this point. Disney seems determined to keep the franchise going (thank GOD!) and has even gone ahead and begun casting for the next installment…!
Will Poulter, most recently seen in the little indie flick Son of Rambow (check out my review of that adorable movie here), has been cast as Eustance Clarence Scrubb in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader…!
Will Poulter, who has been cast as pain-in-the-butt Eustace Scrubb, the Pevensie children’s cousin, in the next Narnia adventure to go before the cameras – The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader – which Michael Apted will direct.
Awful things happen to Eustace in this tale, but he learns.
In Voyage Of The Dawn Treader he’ll join Ben Barnes, as Prince Caspian, and Skandar Keynes and Georgie Henley, as Edmund and Lucy. Peter and Susan don’t feature in this story – at least not in the one C.S Lewis wrote.
I THINK HE’S PERFECT FOR THE ROLE!
His character in Rambow was a little smartass who learns the meaning of friendship, so I know he will be able to showcase Eustance’s character journey with ease.
Dawn Treader hits theaters in two years, on May 7, 2010.
