Remember when they butchered Jules Vernes Journey to the Earth?  Well, New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. are doing it again with Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (Boogaloo).

The new journey begins when young adventurer Sean (Josh Hutcherson) receives a coded distress signal from a mysterious island where no island should exist–a place of strange life forms, mountains of gold, deadly volcanoes, and more than one astonishing secret. Unable to stop him from going, Sean’s new stepfather (Dwayne Johnson) joins the quest. Together with a helicopter pilot (Luis Guzman) and his beautiful, strong-willed daughter (Vanessa Hudgens), they set out to find the island, rescue its lone inhabitant and escape before seismic shockwaves force the island under the sea and bury its treasures forever.

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island arrives in theaters on February 10, 2012.

    Oh, Dwayne… I would think after doing the Witch Mountain sequel, you’d learn your lesson about them. Then the tooth Fairy, then this. You’re sliding down the slippery Nick Cage actor slope and you have so much fun movie potential in you. Remember, you’re filling in Brendan Fraisers’ figurative shoes in this sequel, time to look for a new agent, methinks.

      The guy has kids.

      But even if that wasn’t a factor, if you were in his shoes would you pass up the opportunity to work with Michael Caine?
