Michael Caine signs up for ‘Journey To The Centre Of The Earth’ sequel

Veteran Brit actor to star alongside Dwayne Johnson

Michael Caine is to appear in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, the sequel to 2008’s 3D film Journey To The Centre Of The Earth.

As previously reported, the film has already cast Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock, who will be replacing Brendan Fraser as the lead.

Caine will play the grandfather character in the film, though it is expected that he will appear in “several chase sequences, including one involving giant bees”.

Shooting on Journey 2 will begin next month in Hawaii, before moving on to North Carolina.
