After blaming critics for Sex and the City’s merciful euthanasia, Kristen Davis appears to have finally moved on. After last year’s disastrous Couples Retreat, the actress will be switching genre’s with Brad Peyton’s Journey to the Centre of the Earth 2 and returning to television with NBC’s The Happiness Project.

The actress will play mother to Josh Hutcherson – who will reprise his role from the original film – and love interest to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Also involved in the sequel is Michael Caine who sources report will, at some point, be chased by bees.

In addition to Journey 2, Davis will also return to television screens for The Happiness Project, a project for which ‘Charlotte from Sex and the City’ is set to executive produce as well as star.

Based on ??Gretchen Rubin’s best-selling memoir of the same name, The Happiness Project will follow Davis’ character as she spends a year test driving studies and theories that purport to ensure happiness. Another project promoting self discovery, we can only hope it doesn’t result in endless seasons of Eat Pray Love-level self indulgence.

Currently filming in Hawaii, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island will arrive in cinemas next Autumn.
