MANHATTAN — "Narnia" producer Perry Moore's initial autopsy results were inconclusive, pending additional toxicology and tissue tests, the city's Medical Examiner said Monday.

Moore, 39, was found dead in his Greenwich Village apartment last Thursday, after suffering an apparent overdose, according to published reports. Prescription pill bottles were reportedly found near his body and some reports included rumors that the prescription strength painkiller Oxycontin may have been involved.

Moore was the producer of the blockbuster big-screen trilogy adaptation of C.S. Lewis' books, the "Chronicles of Narnia," which starred Tilda Swinton as the White Witch and Liam Neeson as the voice of the lion, Aslan.

His partner, Hunter Hill, reportedly found the body inside Moore's Houston Street apartment.

Moore had recently penned a young adult book titled, "Hero," about a teen struggling with his new super powers as well as his homosexuality, according to IMDB.

The producer's father told the Daily News that the pair spoke the night before Moore's death, adding that that there was no indication he was in distress.

Moore's father also told the paper his son was waiting to hear back on a new screenplay.
