Jonny Quest Will Be a Live-Action Movie – I Have Questions
I have to be honest. I was a HUGE fan of the Jonny Quest cartoons growing up. So, I'm up for a live action Jonny Quest movie. I'm just afraid it won't match my expectations. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie is a "go".
Will Dr Quest's jet be as cool in the movie as it was in the cartoon? Will there be a giant robot spider with a laser death ray shooting out it's eye? (There were a LOT of lasers in the cartoon) Who do you get to play Dr. Zin - Dr. Quest's nemesis and the most evil mastermind in the history of animation? And will they keep the cool theme music?
They've been down this road before. Six or seven years ago, they planned to have Zac Effron play Jonny and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson play Race Bannon. It never got to production. Now they plan to have Robert Rodriguez direct. He directed the "Spy Kids" movies - but he also directed "Machete", "Sin City", and "From Dusk to Dawn". And he's friends with Quentin Tarantino - who I suggest should be at LEAST a consultant on this.
Good luck, Hollywood. My childhood is your hands. I'll be watching.
