Dwayne Johnson says Journey 3: From the Earth to the Moon is no longer happening

Given that he’s one of the busiest actors in Hollywood, it’s inevitable that some of Dwayne Johnson’s planned projects are set to fall by the wayside, and it seems that’s the case with the third instalment of the Journey franchise, with The Rock revealing on Twitter that Journey 3: From the Earth to the Moon is no longer moving forward.

Hey big man, good to see you asked dad’s permission to use his account. Unfortunately, I have no plans to make another Journey movie. My goal to make Jules Verne’s “From the Earth to the Moon” became a real challenge to crack creatively. Thx for being such a cool fan. https://t.co/9PQeCMBIAR

Johnson starred in 2012’s Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, a sequel to the Brendan Fraser-headlined Journey to the Center of the Earth, which pulled in

The Rock Confirms Journey 3 Is Dead

The Rock Confirms Journey 3 Is Dead
It looks like Dwayne Johnson has managed to clear up his schedule a little bit. Unfortunately, it comes a the cost of those who wanted to see Journey 3 happen. Yes, even though the sequel has been said to be in development for quite some time, it looks like Journey 3: From the Earth to the Moon isn't going to happen. At least not with Dwayne Johnson in it. But is Warner Bros. really going to put that franchise on another star's shoulders? Probably not.

Dwayne Johnson is very active on social media and engages with his fans quite often. Recently, a 15-year-old fan reached out to The Rock on Twitter to ask about the status of Journey 3, which was put into development shortly after Journey 2: The Mysterious Island was released in 2012. Sadly, even though Johnson let his young fan down very easy and in a classy manner, he confirmed

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle movie review: jungle feeble

MaryAnn’s quick take… Culturally clueless cinematic vomit, a cynical undertaking embracing the most diminishing clichés it can apply to its characters. Low stakes, and low humor. I’m “biast” (pro): big fan of Dwayne Johnson, occasion fan of Jack Black

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

More than 20 years after 1995’s Jumanji — the family adventure film about a couple of kids who get sucked into an ancient board game and have to play it to completion to escape — the sequel has arrived… and this time, it’s all about hapless teens who get sucked into a videogame and have to play it to completion to escape. Was anyone demanding a second go at Jumanji? Zathura, the 2005 “spiritual sequel” — which, to be fair, does sound more like marketing baloney than anything else — was a flop. And, to be “fair” to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,

The Hive was a little seen effort about an amnesia afflicted man who’s also being consumed by an aggressive virus, but must remember who he is in order to save his love from a similar fate. Yarovesky has worked with Gunn previously, as a Ravager in Guardians of the Galaxy, and as a director on the Vol. 2 viral music video Inferno.

New Rampage set image shows off Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Agent Russell

Dwayne Johnson has taken to Instagram to share another image from the set of the upcoming video game adaptation Rampage, this time giving us our first glimpse at Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Agent Russell alongside his character Davis Okoye and co-star Naomie Harris.

Johnson captioned the image with: “The animal loving anti-poacher Ranger from Rwanda, the groundbreaking geneticist from Crispr and the cowboy himself from the Oga – the “other” government agency.”

Presumably, Agent Russell will be some type of government villain, because well – just watch any of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s most praised performances and characters. Generally, he makes a very nasty villain.

Baywatch, Pirates 5, and blaming critics for failure

Ryan Lambie Jun 1, 2017

As studios reportedly blame Rotten Tomatoes for the low turn-outs, we look at whether critics have a case to answer...

Look, the last thing we want to do is get on the wrong side of The Rock. The wrestler turned Hollywood star, better known these days as Dwayne Johnson, has already fought everything from a giant electric eel (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) to Vin Diesel’s ego (the Fast & Furious franchise), and he’d probably hammer us into the ground like a tent peg.

Over the past few days, though, the reaction to his latest film, the action comedy remake of 90s TV series Baywatch, appears to have made movie critics the target of his anger. “Fans Love the movie. Critics Hate it,” Johnson wrote on Twitter. “What a disconnect.

'Rampage'! Dwayne Johnson Shares First Photo and Plot Details

Apes and monsters destroy cities! That was the premise of the action-filled arcade game Rampage, which became a hit in arcades in the 1980s before making its way to home video systems. Now a movie version is on its way starring Dwayne Johnson. The game really didn't feature a plot, per se. Instead, players controlled humans who had been transformed into gigantic monsters (gorilla, lizard, wolf). In order to move to the next level, players had to wreak as much destruction as possible. Obviously, that left a huge space for the filmmakers to fill with their own story and characters. Brad Peyton came on board to direct; he previously teamed with Johnson for the family adventure Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and the earthquake survival thriller San Andreas (top). Last year he...
