While no actors have been set for Journey 3, The Hollywood Reporter claims that Journey 2 director Brad Peyton and writers Brian Gunn and Mark Gunn will be returning for the 3D followup.
"I grew up a fan of [author Jules] Verne, so I know a lot about the mythologies," said Peyton. "Mysterious Island was one of eight or nine really seminal works. I know we've just scratched the surface of what we can do. This one's going to be a lot bigger. We're going to go to a completely different world. It's just going to be a bigger experience and we're going to grow the mythology. Journey 2 was about rebooting a franchise. Now it's about making the seminal work in the franchise."
The studio is fast-tracking the family adventure and hopes to have the project ready for theaters by 2014.
Journey 2 releases March 16 in South Africa.
