Heat Vision is reporting that Michael Caine is in final negotiations to join Dwayne Johnson in the “Journey to the Center of the Earth” sequel Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
The script, loosely based on Jules Verne’s “The Mysterious Island,” sees Hutcherson reprising his role from the first movie and partnering with Johnson, playing his mom’s boyfriend, on a trip to a mythical island to find his missing grandfather.
Caine is the grandfather, but the part is no cameo. The role will see the actor in action mode, engaging in several chase sequences, including one involving giant bees.
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is scheduled to hit conventional and 3D theaters on September 23, 2011.
