According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chad and Carey Hayes, the brothers who wrote New Line’s hit horror movie The Conjuring, have been tapped to pen the scripts for movies that follow 2008’s Journey to the Center of the Earth and 2012’s Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
Dwayne Johnson, who toplined Journey 2 (the first film starred Brendan Fraser in the lead role), playing a Navy code breaker, is attached to star in the new installments, which could be filmed back-to-back, schedule permitting. Josh Hutcherson is expected to return as well, although he is not formally attached.
Flynn Picture Company’s Beau Flynn will return to the franchise as producer. Charlotte Huggins will also serve as producer. Evan Turner will executive produce. New Line execs Sam Brown and Michael Disco are overseeing for the company.
Plot details are being kept off the grid at this stage. The hiring of the Hayes brothers takes the project in a different direction. Previously, Brian and Mark Gunn, who wrote Journey 2, were hired in 2012 to pen a script for a Journey 3.

Who’s up for an adventure? Believe everything you read as the action-packed 3D adventure follow-up to Journey to the Centre of the Earthgoes to the deadliest and deepest part of the ocean as the box office smash hit JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND comes to Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on 28 May 2012, from Warner Home Video.
Directed by BRAD PEYTON (Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore), JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND is loosely based on the Jules Verne’s novel The Mysterious Island and stars DWAYNE “THE ROCK” JOHNSON (Fast and Furious 5, The Scorpion King), MICHAEL CAINE (The Dark Knight Rises, Inception), JOSH HUTCHERSON (The Hunger Games, Journey to the Center of the Earth), VANESSA HUDGENS (High School Musical franchise, Sucker Punch), LUIZ GUZMAN (Carlito’s Way, Boogie Nights) and KRISTIN DAVIS (Sex and the City, Couples Retreat).
JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND follows the adventures of Sean Anderson (HUTCHERSON), (reprising his role from the first film) after he receives a coded distress signal from a mysterious location where no island should exist. It’s a place of giant creatures, mountains of gold, deadly volcanoes and more than one astonishing secret.
Unable to stop him from going, Sean’s new stepfather, Hank (JOHNSON), joins the quest. Together with a helicopter pilot (GUZMAN) and his beautiful, strong-willed daughter (HUDGENS) they set out to find the island, rescue its lone inhabitant and escape before seismic shockwaves force the island under the sea and bury its treasures forever.
Experience the breathtaking beauty of the island and jump into the action to escape a giant eel and soar through the air on giant bees with the stunning high definition Blu-ray 3D release, which puts you at the heart of the thrilling adventure.
Last month, Josh and Vanessa stopped off in Hawaii to promote their movie “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island”. Up until now the only photos that were available were only Vanessa’s; thanks to Katniss-Peeta.com we’ve added Josh’s photos to the galleries.
With today’s Los Angeles premiere of “Journey 2” just around the corner, we’ve finally managed to catch up on Josh’s previous premiere and photocall engagements, namely his appearances at the Mexico City premiere and photocall for “Journey 2”. New photos from the Sydney photocall at Bondi Beach have also been added.
Josh and Vanessa stopped by iconic beach, Bondi Beach, and partook in a media photocall on the shore. The pair are in Australia to promote their upcoming movie, “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island”; they previously stopped over in Melbourne. The movie comes to Australia this Thursday (19 February 2012) but will not have a worldwide release until February 2012.
Josh and Vanessa woke up early this morning and appeared on the morning breakfast television show ‘Sunrise’. In the interview, Josh and Vanessa talk about the difficulties of “working” in Hawaii, working with Michael Cain, “The Hunger Games” and the highly anticipated flick and much, much more! You can check it out on Youtube here (video thanks to Iria from Damian-Lewis.com!)
The stars of Journey 2 were in the studio with Fitzy and Wippa, who decided to use them to prank Today Show host Ben Fordham. Yesterday, Ben asked Vanessa and Josh how long they had been going out, not realising they weren’t together any more.
