Dwayne Johnson and Josh Hutcherson set for Journey 2: The Mysterious Island
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
With FASTER, I thought Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was going to go back to his roots and do some hardcore action movies. Fans have been clamoring for him to get back to busting heads instead of prancing around in a tutu, but it looks like he doesn’t care. The former wrestler has just agreed to star in JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND, which is a sequel to the Brendan Fraser film JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH. He joins Josh Hutcherson, who is returning for the sequel.
What’s confusing about this is that Johnson is doing a cheesy 3D movie that’s a sequel to a horrible film. We expect this from Brendan Fraser, but The Rock should know better. Speaking of Fraser, I wonder if they’re going to work a role in the film for him as well. Brad Peyton will be directing the film which centers on Hutcherson’s character taking a trip to a mysterious island to find his missing grandfather. Johnson will play the boyfriend of Huthcerson’s mom.
