Narnia movie pun alert!

Here’s a groaner that had somehow never occurred to me before. Jeff Overstreet’s blog includes a link to this interview with Douglas Gresham, the stepson of C.S. Lewis who is overseeing the film adaptation of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, hopefully the first of several Narnia movies. And somewhere on that page, the interviewer asks this question about the film’s director:

What has it been like working with Son of Adam (Andrew Adamson) and the rest of the film crew?

Get it? Get it? “Adamson”? “Son of Adam”? I don’t know why it took me this long to notice this play on names, but there it is, now. Almost makes you wish there was a director with the surname “Evesdaughter”, just so they could get a theme going here.
