New Line Moves Forward with JOURNEY 3 for Possible 2014 Release

It looks as though New Line has a bona fide franchise on their hands with the Journey to the Center of the Earth movies. Journey 2: The Mysterious Island just passed $270 million worldwide, besting the Brendan Fraser-fronted first movie’s $242 million total gross, and now Heat Vision reports that New Line is moving forward with Journey 3. The studio has closed deals with Journey 2 director Brad Peyton and writers Brian Gunn and Mark Gunn to return for the third (and likely not final) installment. Peyton commented that they’re going to “grow the mythology,” and said that while Journey 2 was definitely a franchise reboot, Journey 3 will be about “making the seminal work in the franchise.” Alrighty then. The film is on a fast track with a targeted 2014 release in mind.

No deals have been discussed with returning cast members, but I wouldn’t be shocked if Josh Hutcherson opts to stick with The Hunger Games instead of the Journey series. Apparently kids really like the 3D franchise, and I’m totally fine with them continuing the series as long as they feature burly action stars or legendary thespians gleefully riding giant CGI creatures in each and every installment.

    Ok since on the film we were left with the grandpa saying”Whos up for another adventure?”And he pulls out[spoiler for those who havent seen] A trip from the earth to the moon book.
    It be obvious why they would make a 3rd movie. But I’d be happy if Vanessa Hudgens agreed to do the next film[Now disney would be in competition if they made a Mission Space film from the ride]seeing her in a space suit would look fun. Give the kids a better persepective of being in space. Cause if you go to Nasa its the same thing without the training. Im sure they would show it in the film to because from there you have to get to the rocket to by bus.[sometimes]
    Go to Nasa if you can its so much fun!Worth the wait.
