Ugh! The first one was a real stinko! Why the hell would they make a sequel?!
Sources are confirming that a sequel to Journey To The Center Of The Earth is ready to go into production, but there was a last miute change in the lineup.
Due to "schedule conflicts", Brendan Fraser won't be reprising his role in the flick. Instead, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will step in to take his place. Based loosely on Jules Verne's The Mysterious Island, the sequel finds The Rock joining up with Sean Anderson, played by Josh Hutcherson…again, to travel to a mysterious island in search of Anderson's grandfather.
We want to hear more about these "schedule conflicts" keeping Brendan from making money? What could he possibly be doing?
Hmm. Maybe he is getting hair plugs! If ever a person really needed them…
