'Rings' FX Guru To Helm Dawn Treader Animation

From The Movie Reporter: I Am Legend's Visual Effects Supervisor Jim Berney
IESB: Sony Imageworks is going to be working on Justice League. Is that something you're going to be involved with?

Berney: No, I'm not on that, actually. I'm currently working on, with Jim Rygiel. He and are working on "Eagle Eye" and then he's going to be doing Narnia 3, "The Dawn Treader". There's nothing official on this but I'm hoping to do "Dawn Treader".

IESB: That's my favorite of the books.

Berney: That's everybody's favorite of the books! It's going to be pretty cool. I did the first one. I didn't do the second one since I was doing this, but there's a chance -- that's what I'm kind of angling to do is part three.

IESB: Outside of that, do you have a dream project that you'd like to someday work on?

Berney: That's funny, I don't anymore. Years ago, actually, Narnia was it. I always thought that was the next Lord of the Rings type of thing so I was really happy to be able to get onto that. I always wanted to do digital humans at some point so I was actually glad to get a chance to do that. I'm glad they didn't have speaking roles just because of the short time-frame. The added animation of a speaking part would have probably pushed us to our boundary at the time.
