The man behind ‘Spy Kids’ will direct another family-action movie based on the cartoon series.
Rodriguez has signed up with Warner Bros, Lin Pictures Banner and Prime Universe Shingle to make a film adaptation of the cartoon series. Terry Rossio ( Pirates of the Caribbean) will co-write with Dan Lin.
The studios have been developing the movie for quite some time and they are confident that the inclusion of making Rodriguez as the director will make it possible and make into a success.
‘Jonny Quest’ was a cartoon show back in 1964 that is a about a young boy having dangerous adventures with his father, his father’s colleagues and with his equally young friend, Hadji. In spite its critical success, the series stopped after one season due to it being too expensive for the studios. Fortunately, it came back as a reboot in 1996 and lived for two seasons.
Back in 2009, the project was attached to Zac Efron, playing the title role, and Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson to play Race Banner. However, there hasn’t been any news if they are still attached to it ever since.
