New Line has greenlit a follow-up to last summer's successful 3-D smash Journey to the Center of the Earth, which grossed an impressive $240 million globally.
The film's stars, Brendan Fraser and Josh Hutcherson, are expected to return to their roles as an adventurous uncle and nephew, respectively, in the film. The sequel will be based on a commingling of several literary classics, including Gulliver's Travels, Treasure Island, and Mysterious Island. Writer Richard Outten wrote the sequel's script with the idea that all the action in these separate books actually took place on the same island, given the fact that Journey to the Center of the Earth was based on a complete piece of fiction and didn't lend itself easily to a sequel.
