According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chad and Carey Hayes, the brothers who wrote New Line’s hit horror movie The Conjuring, have been tapped to pen the scripts for movies that follow 2008′s Journey to the Center of the Earth and 2012′s Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
Dwayne Johnson, who toplined Journey 2 (the first film starred Brendan Fraser in the lead role), playing a Navy code breaker, is attached to star in the new installments, which could be filmed back-to-back, schedule permitting. Josh Hutcherson is expected to return as well, although he is not formally attached.
Flynn Picture Company’s Beau Flynn will return to the franchise as producer. Charlotte Huggins will also serve as producer. Evan Turner will executive produce. New Line execs Sam Brown and Michael Disco are overseeing for the company.
Plot details are being kept off the grid at this stage. The hiring of the Hayes brothers takes the project in a different direction. Previously, Brian and Mark Gunn, who wrote Journey 2, were hired in 2012 to pen a script for a Journey 3.

The third annual Josh Hutcherson Celebrity basketball game kicked off at L.A. Live on Friday evening, headlined by actors Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Romeo Miller, Kyle Massey, former NFL star Terrell Owens, and many others. The net earnings from the game will go to raising funds and awareness for Josh’s charity, “Straight But Not Narrow.”
All the participating celebrities were split into two teams – Team White and Team Black. The game was four 10 minute quarters, with no stoppage of time during dead balls and free throws.
E! Online has exclusively revealed that Josh is helping launch Power On, the new Straight But Not Narrow (SBNN) initiative with The Trevor Project and human I-T to provide LGBTQ youth access to computers and online resources.
“I’m kicking off the Power On campaign by donating one of my old computers, and it’s awesome to know that it’ll be used to help a young person out there who, before this campaign, wasn’t able to get access to information and resources that could really help them,” Hutcherson said in a statement. “I’ve always respected the work that The Trevor Project does, and to have an opportunity for Straight But Not Narrow to collaborate with them on a campaign like Power On is exciting.”
From today through LBGT Spirit Day on Oct. 17, human I-T will refurbish donated laptops, tablets and smart phones that will be distributed to LGBTQ youth in underserved areas of the U.S.
And tonight Hutcherson hosts his third annual celebrity charity basketball game in downtown L.A. that benefits SBNN. Among those playing are The Avengers’ Clark Gregg, Dallas star Josh Henderson, former NFL star Terrell Owens and NBA player Sasha Vujacic, among others.
