Saving Narnia

Mark Joseph offers some good advice on how to save Narnia:
  1. Start over again with a new producer and director
  2. Understand the core audience of the film and don't offend it
  3. Let Doug Gresham be Doug Gresham
  4. Be faithful to Lewis
  5. Let faith leaders see the film in its entirety months before its release.
  6. Don't be ashamed of the themes in the film or the audience it appeals to
  7. Time the release carefully
  8. Stop spending so much money
  9. Give Phil Anschutz a stronger role in the production.
  10. Let Lewis be your guide
Read the whole thing to see each of these ten points explained.
