Walden Media sets Screenwriters for “Journey 3” and “Journey 4”

Sunday, August 17th, 2014

Journey 2: The Mysterious IslandNew Line Cinema and Walden Media have signed brothers Chad and Carey Hayes 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.

Journey 3 and Journey 4 could film back-to-back, if they can work on the filming schedule to accommodate the cast.

Plot details are being kept underwraps at this time. Journey 3 was originally announced back in 2012, after Mysterious Island proved to be fairly successful. At the time, Brian and Mark Gunn were hired to write, having written the second film.

Dwayne Johnson, who joined the cast for the second film in the franchise, is signed on to star in the sequels. Josh Hutcherson, while expected to return, has not formally signed yet.

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.


Dwayne Johnson in talks to return for Journey 3

I have really enjoyed the two Journey films based on adventures to the places written about by Jules Verne.  Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D was an excellent adventure, and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island took things to the next level with some really fun sequences and some scenes that were entertaining more than they were cheesy.

Now comes word that there will be a third adventure, rounding out a trilogy of adventure films.  The studio is currently targeting a 2014 release for Journey 3.

Here is some more information from The Wrap:

According to reports, the characters played by Josh Hutcherson and Johnson in the last installment return in “Journey 3.”

Director Brad Peyton and screenwriters Brian Gunn and Mark Gunn have signed on for the third film.

“Journey 3” is produced by Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson and Charlotte Huggins.

It’s probably too early in development to know whether Michael Caine, Vanessa Hudgens, Luis Guzman and/or Kristen Davis will return for the third installment.

Director Brad Peyton commented to Heat Vision: “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.”
