Frequently Asked Question about The Lion Awakes
The following are answers to questions about the upcoming movie on the life of C.S. Lewis entitled The Lion Awakes.
While all answers are believed to be accurate as of the date posted above, please note that this is an UNOFFICIAL page and not meant to suggest it is endorsed by those who are actually producing the movie. Here’s part of what Dr. Markos emailed about the news: “I have bad news and good news. The bad news is that I and my fellow producers have decided to end the kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the film. The GOOD news is that the reason we decided to end it is that we are currently in negotiation with a major studio, and it seemed more prudent at this time to focus on issues of production.” Does the film have an official site?
