Hutcherson did confirm that he had auditioned, adding what most everyone already knows about the casting process for Webb’s anticipated reboot: "I think a lot of people are auditioning and talking about it, so it’s an honor to be considered on the same list with some of these actors that I’m up against. It’s really cool. To be talked about in that kind of role is very awesome."
"I really don’t know what’s going on with everything right now," he told us when asked if he was still in the running. "It would be an honor to play that role, it’s a big thing, it’s a total game changer. I really want to play a comic book hero. I’m not really huge into comics, but I’ve always been big into superheroes from the cartoons and the movies that have been made about them."
We kind of knew the answer but we had to Hutcherson if he had a chance to read any of the script before or during his audition, to which he replied, "No, they won’t let anybody read that. They have it in a safe inside a vault inside some secret Fort Knox location."
He talks more about the Journey to the Center of the Earth sequel and Red Dawn remake in the interview, which you can read in full here.
