We may not want to admit it, but the 2008 3D film Journey to the Center of the Earth was a $100 million hit. So, of course, production just started on the sequel. Journey 2: The Mysterious Island brings back star Josh Hutcherson as he sets out on another adventure. This time, however, Brendan Frasier is nowhere to be found. Instead, he’s been replaced by Dwayne Johnson (already back to family films after Faster and Fast Five) who stars along with Michael Caine, Vanessa Hudgens, Luis Guzman and Kristin Davis. Directed by Brad Peyton (Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore), the 3D sequel is now shooting in Hawaii before moving to North Carolina. After the break, read the official plot description and check out some set photos. Read More »

I wonder if Kristin Davis is realizing that it’s a good time to do something that is very explicitly not like Sex and the City. She’s got a couple of projects brewing. One is a single-camera TV series based on the Gretchen Rubin memoir The Happiness Project, which she’ll star in and co-exec produce with Kristin Newman.

Todd Solondz, the provocative, some might say confrontational filmmaker behind such bold, brilliant films as Welcome to the Dollhouse and Happiness, has found his cast for Dark Horse. The indie drama began principal photography earlier this week, with frequent bit player, first-time lead Jordan Gelber taking the center role, Justin Bartha (The Hangover) playing his more successful brother, and Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi (The Last Airbender) playing his love interest’s “not quite” ex-boyfriend.

Now there’s a casting update that sees the film’s actor roster getting a big push. Joining the film are Christopher Walken, Mia Farrow and Selma Blair, who round out a cast that revolves around “a thirtysomething man (Gelber) in arrested development who lives with his parents (Walken and Farrow), reluctantly works for his father and avidly collects toys. He seeks out a thirtysomething woman (Blair) in arrested development in an attempt to shed the “dark horse” status in his family and finally accomplish something.”

(After the break, more on Dark Horse, and Vanessa Hudgens gets cast in the sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth.) Read More »

We’ve known for a long time that a sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth is in the offing. Josh Hutcherson, who co-starred with Brendan Fraser in the first film, is definitely back for more. But Fraser will be a no-show for take two. Now Dwayne Johnson is in negotiations to take his place as co-star of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. Read More »
