Vanessa Hudgens joins Dwayne Johnson and Josh Hutcherson in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island

It’s odd when a sequel manages to assemble a better cast than the original, but usually you find that to be true with superhero movies where they’re trying to up the ante and make everything bigger and better. But I guess the same can be true for lame, cheap, 3D films with no plot or purpose. Case in point; JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND. They’ve added another fan favorite in Vanessa Hudgens, who will be playing the female lead in the sequel to JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH. She joins a cast that already includes Dwayne Johnson, Josh Hutcherson and Michael Caine.
The action this time follows Hutcherson’s character as he enlists the help of The Rock’s character to go find his missing grandfather, played by Michael Caine. Hudgens will play an islander that gets involved with the adventure. Brad Peyton is directing the film. Production kicks off this month in North Carolina and Hawaii.
