For quite some time, Michael Caine has been one of my favorite actors...which is sort of like saying that you enjoy The Rolling Stones.  They've been around forever, they have a ton of fans--so what if you like the?

Well, I do enjoy Michael Caine, and especially recently in his collaborations with Christopher Nolan on both "Batman" films, "The Prestige" and the absolutely stunning "Inception." He is about to add a bit more to his already impressive resume.

According to Heat Vision, Caine is in final talks to star in the sequel of "Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D," titled "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island."

Josh Hutcherson reprises his role from the first movie as a young man who, along with his mom's boyfriend (Dwayne Johnson), goes on a trip to a mythical island to find his missing grandfather.

Caine will play the grandfather, who gets himself involved in several action and chase sequences, including one involving giant bees. Sitting around is one thing Caine won't be doing in this film.

Brad Peyton directs from a script loosely based on Jules Verne's "The Mysterious Island." The movie will shoot in Hawaii and then move to North Carolina.

Although Caine doesn't often find himself in youth-oriented films, this one should be pretty successful. The first film made a decent amount of money and now that Hutcherson is a bit older (and after starring in "The Kids Are Alright"), he is about ready to breakthrough big time.
