“Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” was a lot of fun and the movie has made over $275 million worldwide, enough of a good sign to prompt the quick signing of a third entry in the popular franchise.
Director Brad Peyton and writers Brian Gunn and Mark Gunn have all been signed to return. No word yet on if Josh Hutcherson, Michael Caine, Dwayne Johnson or Vanessa Hudgens will sign on for another go round.
Peyton had this to say about the third film:
"I grew up a fan of Verne, so I know a lot about the mythologies. Mysterious Island was one of eight or nine really seminal works. I know we've just scratched the surface of what we can do. This one's going to be a lot bigger. We're going to go to a completely different world. It's just going to be a bigger experience, and we're going to grow the mythology. Journey 2 was about rebooting a franchise; now it's about making the seminal work in the franchise."
