The Mysterious Island (rebooted)

Jules Verne’s The Mysterious Island has been rebooted and upgraded, mainly by retitling it as ‘Journey 2: The Mysterious Island’ and casting Dwayne Johnson, Michael Caine, Josh Hutcherson, Luis Guzman and Vanessa Hudgens in the film.

There are oversize bees, dinosaurs, lost cities and a steampunk submarine at the end, even if the plot has been moved from the US civil war to the 21st century. Hey, that sounds like one of my books, doesn’t it?

Watch the trailer and make your own mind up!


I am an author of various fantasy, science fiction, crime and other genre books from Gollancz, Hachette and HarperCollins. Some day I hope to grow up and be an astronaut. Exploring Mars would be nice.
