THE Brendan Fraser film Journey to the Center of the Earth depicts real events, it has been confirmed.
As scientists found water, huge gems and probably also dinosaurs in the Earth’s core, the producers of the 2008 family adventure film and its sequel starring The Rock confirmed they are documentaries.
Executive producer Emma Bradford said: “We just sent Brendan Fraser to the Earth’s core with a small crew, where they found loads of monsters and an annoying helpful bird.
“At the time it seemed too remarkable so we promoted it as a work of fiction.
“Same with the sequel, where you see Michael Caine riding a giant wasp. He actually did that, those wasps are surprisingly easy to train.”
Bradford said she couldn’t confirm whether Jule Verne’s original book was factually accurate because her team never bothered to read it.
