I don't know who I feel worse for: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson for never getting the chance to become The World's Greatest Action Star after the promising The Rundown, or Brendan Fraser for, well, everything. All I know is that Johnson is going to star in another kid-friendly adventure movie sequel and he's doing it by kicking Fraser out of the franchise.
The film is Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, the sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D. No word yet on whether or not they'll drop the colon and change the title to the infinitely hipper Journey 2 The Mysterious Island.
Tell us the plot, Heat Vision!
Johnson will play the boyfriend of Hutcherson's mom, who Hutcherson is forced to bring on a trip to a mythical and monstrous island to find his missing grandfather. The script is loosely based on Jules Verne's "The Mysterious Island."
