New Line/Warner Bros. has also announced that Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is coming to theaters on January 27, 2012. The sequel, featuring Dwayne Johnson, Michael Caine, Josh Hutcherson, Vanessa Hudgens, Luis Guzman and Kristen Davis, will face thriller One for the Money on that date.
While the Internet rages with debate over the Hunger Games casting of Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth as Peeta and Gale, respectively, the important decision makers, including the books’ author Suzanne Collins, have no doubts. “I was fortunate enough to be in the room with Gary Ross when Josh came in to audition,” said Collins, in a statement. “Three lines into the read I knew he’d be fantastic. Josh totally captured Peeta’s temperament, his sense of humor and his facility for language. I’m thrilled to have him aboard.”
