Brendan Fraser Not Returning for "Journey to the Center of the Earth" Sequel

Posted: May 25th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Brendan Fraser Not Returning for "Journey to the Center of the Earth" SequelSubmit Comment
Deadline is reporting that Brendan Fraser is not returning for the "Journey to the Center of the Earth" sequel and neither is director Eric Brevig. But New Line Cinema is till planning to move forward with the second installment.

The studio is currently in talks with Brad Peyton (Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore) to helm and will make Josh Hutcherson the lead character. In the original, Hutcherson played Fraser's nephew.

The reason why Brevig left the project is because the studio wants "Journey" to be released in theaters by fall of 2011. Unfortunately, he's busy making "Yogi Bear," also for Warner Bros (parent company of New Line). As soon as Brevig abandoned the project, so did Fraser, but sources claim that there is still a chance for him to change his mind and return to reprise his role in the sequel.

I think Fraser is holding out on the Furry Vengeance-sequel.

Brendan Fraser Not Returning for "Journey to the Center of the Earth" Sequel ... unless Pauly Shore and Sean Astin are there ... nope. Still wouldn't work.

I thought it said Brendan Fraser Not Returning and thought he finally died from asphyxiation sex and was overjoyed ... but then I read the article.

Brendan, after Furry Vengeance, how come you've hadn't OD'd yet ?

Brendan finally proved one thing we've suspected for the longest time ... he's been wheezin' for a looooong time. And it ISN'T juice.


He's one movie away from starring in late night INFOMERCIALS

@Freudian

If he's holding his BREATH for it, I hope he turns blue and passes out.

Furry Vengeance sounded like a porno about Megan Fox's snatch.

@Ranger-
Yes, i couldn't agree with you more. But, lets hope he changes his mind and decides to return to Journey to the Center of the Earth 2. This movie does not need to happen at all with out him, if this is the case, and stays that way.

so the movie looked worse then a dead horse's vagina, why would one return to that?
Ranger writes:
on May 25th, 2010 at 7:50:51 PM

@MadHatter - well said. If he's not in it... why bother?! Now they're giving the lead to the character that played his nephew? Ugh! Truly a sign of beating this dead dog!

@Ranger

... with a lead pipe. Repeatedly. Then taking the carcass, throwing it into a cement foundation, pouring quick drying cement over it like that CEO #5 in the movie Rising Sun and hoping that the Yankees don't spend money digging it up with sledgehammers and jackhammers to recover the Red Sox jersey we put on it, before burying it near Yankee Stadium ...

Brendan better take the job. He needs to buy more toupees than Shatner.
