Michael Caine is joining the cast of ‘Journey 2: The Mysterious Island’ according to a report. The film is a sequel to the 2008 film ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D’.
Josh Hutcherson will be back in his role from the first film, joined by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson who will play his mother’s boyfriend. Together they will go looking for Hutcherson’s missing grandfather.
“Caine is the grandfather, but the part is no cameo. The role will see the actor in action mode, engaging in several chase sequences, including one involving giant bees,” says the report.
The sequel will be directed by Brad Peyton and is inspired by the Jules Verne novel ‘Mysterious Island’. Filming will begin next month in Hawaii and North Carolina.
