Director Brad Peyton to Start a Major Earthquake in 'San Andreas 3D'
Director Brad Peyton already has a busy future with Journey 3, another sequel to follow Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (Josh Hutcherson and Dwayne Johnson are returning), and an adaptation of DC Comics' property Lobo (which might also get Johnson back with Peyton), but that's not stopping him from adding another project to his slate. Heat Vision has word that Peyton is in talks to helm San Andreas 3D, a special effects extravaganza said to center on a massive earthquake that hits California. Allan Loeb (Wall Street 2) was the most recent writer to polish the original script by Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore.
Aside from the fact that this film is in 3D, I'm not sure what the film can offer than wasn't already on display in the big budget end of the world flick 2012. The only difference seems to be a plot that focuses on a man forced to go on the road to reconcile with his children and estranged wife who's decided to shack up with another man, and then this earthquake hits. Beau Flynn, the man behind the first Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D, a film that had fun theme park 3D with cheap special effects, is backing this film, so my hopes aren't very high. But if the effects shine, it might be worth a trip to the theater. We'll see.

I expected it to have something to do with GTA, but I guess I was wrong huh?

Like the article said, what can this movie visually show us that we didn't see in 2012? Yeah, 2012 was garbage, but judging by this guy's track record and who is supporting it, this looks like it's gonna be extremely similiar..... as in... more garbage. So I don't see the point in this.
