And we have a feeling she's going to find it.

Vanessa Hudgens will be setting sail with Dwayne Johnson and Josh Hutcherson in "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Brendan Fraser-less sequel to "Journey to the Center of the Earth 3-D" features young Sean (Hutcherson) joining forces with his mom's boyfriend (The Rock!) to find his missing grandfather.

Vanessa will be playing something of a love interest for Hutcherson as they battle the torrid elements and horrific beasties. Perhaps she'll even burst into song at some point.

The Hudge's career has been quite a "Journey" itself, going from "High School Musical" star to island-exploring hottie. And 2011 is shaping up to be quite a year for her, as she'll also be appearing in Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch" (as a character named Blondie -- that's probably meant to be ironic in a cool ironic way) and as the lovestruck Lindy in the much-delayed "Beastly."

"Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" will begin shooting in late October in North Carolina and Hawaii. The film opens Sept. 23, 2011.
