Johnny Quest


Much like the time Jonny had to deal with mummies coming back to life or with the arrival of real life space men(!), the process toward developing and finishing a live action Jonny Quest movie has been an adventure. While a previous live action film was announced in 2009 with Zac Efron set to play Jonny and Dwayne Johnson as Race Bannon, it’s safe to say that’s not the version we’ll be getting anymore. Jonny Quest, for those not acquainted with Cartoon Network at 3:00am, is the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon that centered on an intrepid young explorer, the son of a scientist/inventor who usually got into zany adventures with Hadji, his best buddy. Hadji wore a turban, had mystical powers (like snake charming and hypnotism) and was Indian, and since this was the 1960s, they never let you forget this. Rounding out the crew was the buff Race Bannon, the Quest family body guard and Bandit, their lovable canine companion.


Johnny Quest, yes. The Rock, maybe. Zac Efron, say what.

I don’t know either. I just don’t know. Should I be excited about an adaptation of a childhood favorite despite the casting?
