“Sin City” Director Set to Direct Live-Action “Jonny Quest” Movie

Jonny Quest Cast

Superhero Hype has reported that Robert Rodriguez, director of such films as Sin City, Spy Kids, and Machete, will direct the live-action version of the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon Jonny Quest for Warner Bros.

The film will be based on the cartoon that aired on ABC back in 1964 dealing with Jonny, the son of research scientist Dr. Benton Quest, and his dangerous adventures around the world with their bodyguard Race Bannon, their friend Hadji, and Bandit the dog.  Past voices for Jonny Quest include Tim Matheson (Animal House), Scott Menville (Teen Titans), and J.D. Roth (Fun House). Past efforts to bring Jonny Quest to live-action screens promised Zac Efron as Jonny and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Race Bannon, but that initiative foundered and the casting will not apply to Robert Rodriguez’s movie..

Mr. Rodriguez is set to direct the film and co-write the script with Terry Rossio (The Lone Ranger, Pirates of the Caribbean). Dan Lin (The Lego Movie) and Adrian Askarieh will produce the film.
