    Empire has learned that Walden Media, one of the production companies on Disney's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, is planning to update Journey to the Center of the Earth.

    The magazine says that the modern day set movie will see a father and son discover that Jules Verne's 1864 novel was not merely science fiction.

    Walden Media will shoot the film only in 3-D and hopes to release the movie on about 3,000 theaters domestically.

    New Line is teaming with Walden Media to co-finance Journey 3-D, a modern take on the Jules Verne classic "Journey to the Center of the Earth," reports Variety.

    Eric Brevig, who won a Special Achievement Academy Award for his visual effects work on Total Recall, will make his feature directorial debut. D.V. DeVincentis (High Fidelity) has written the script.

    Visual effects veteran Charlotte Huggins is producing, and production will begin in April.

    The story centers on a teenager and his scientist father who stumble onto a message hidden in an ancient artifact. Their attempt to solve the riddle leads them into a previously unseen world and the creatures that inhabit it.

    The film will be shot in live action, but the otherworldly landscapes and creatures will be supplied by high-definition, photo-real 3-D technology, adds the trade. Brevig will use cameras specially developed for Walden's large-format 3-D films, which include the James Cameron-directed Ghosts of the Abyss and Aliens of the Deep.

    Walden used the photo-real 3-D technology to bring creatures to life in the Andrew Adamson-directed The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, to be released on December 9 by Disney.

    "In our never-ending push to get young people to read books, a central premise is to use the Verne book as a map," said Walden Media CEO Cary GranatCary Granat. "The scientist makes the discovery that Verne might have gone down to the center of the Earth himself, and that he hid clues in the text. The hope is that a lot of people will read the book to discover the clues."
