Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is stepping in for Brendan Fraser in the sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth, known as Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. The film’s first trailer has premiered.
The film also stars Vanessa Hudgens and Josh Hutcherson (soon to be seen in The Hunger Games).
Hutcherson was in the first film, and appears to be the only connection to Fraser’s Journey. The story follows Hutcherson’s Sean Anderson, who goes on a… well, journey to find the Mysterious Island that science fiction writer Jules Verne wrote about. His character believes his grandfather (Michael Caine) is lost there. Along for the ride is his mom’s boyfriend (Johnson) and his girlfriend (Hudgens).
