Zac Efron Talks "Jonny Quest" Movie

Zac Efron Talks "Jonny Quest" MovieSubmit Comment
Moviehole had the chance to speak to Zac Efron (High School Musical), who is in talks to star in a live-action adaptation of "Jonny Quest." In addition to Efron, director Andy Fickman (Race to Witch Mountain, The Game Plan) and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson are also in negotiations.

Efron said that the project is still in its early stages, adding that it will take years before appearing in theaters. "It's a long, long process," he said. "They're very, very early on [with it] not that it won't happen, it's just early."

Johnson previously commented on the script. "I don't know if you've read the latest [draft] but it's awesome and it's badass... I hadn't read an action script like that in a long time. And that action was unbelievable. That will happen."

The 1960s animated TV series revolved around a young boy who travels the world with his scientist father, adopted brother from India, Bandit the bulldog, and a government agent assigned to protect them as they go on their adventures investigating scientific mysteries.

Efron would play the title character and Johnson would play Race Bannon.

Zac Efron will be what 22 to 24 when this comes out? Time to play someting more his age IMO.

yeah. If it's going to take "years" to get this going, they should be in talks with someone else. Although going with a younger actor close to the animated JQ's age would put it too far into that Spy Kids realm and would be horrible since little kids have no clue who Quest is. And it'd be Race To Witch Mountain all over again. Johnson will still dominate as Baqnon though.

as much as I cant stand him he fits the look well but like it was mentioned it's gonna take forever and he'll probably be to old for the film to pull off looking 15 or however old JQ was in the cartoon
