Josh Hutcherson explores "The Mysterious Island"

Actor-on-the-rise Josh Hutcherson (upcoming "The Hunger Games") returns as young explorer Sean in New Line Cinema's "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island", the follow-up to the 2008 worldwide hit "Journey to the Center of the Earth".

When the story opens, young Sean is definitely not where he wants to be. It's been years since his father's death, and his mother, Liz (Kristin Davis), has recently married Hank (Dwayne Johnson) and relocated the family to suburban Ohio. With no friends around, and a stepfather with whom he's convinced he has nothing in common, Sean spends many solitary hours poring over his maps and Jules Verne novels and dreaming about undiscovered corners of the world that await him.

"He feels trapped," says Hutcherson, who reprises a role that has matured in sync with his own life in the four years since "Journey to the Center of the Earth" first screened. "He's ready to move on to bigger things, and he's filled with curiosity about the world, which I completely understand. I think a lot of people do, even if they're not necessarily interested in discovering lost islands. There's just a driving need to be out there on your own, figuring things out and finding your own way."

More specifically, Hutcherson emphasizes, "Sean doesn't want any part of his step-dad. He thinks the guy has nothing to offer; he's unhip, uncool and has no imagination."
