"Jonny Quest" Film Re-Named to "Not Based on Jonny Quest"

Posted: April 10th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Jonny Quest" Film Re-Named to "Not Based on Jonny Quest"Submit Comment
Ok, so that's not the real name. But whatever it will be, the title of the upcoming live-action adaptation of the cartoon classic "Jonny Quest" will have nothing to do with the main character.

According to the LA Times, Warner Bros is worried to use the "Jonny Quest" title because the connection to the vintage 1964 show might turn off potential audiences. The paper uses "Speed Racer" as an example of that. The film cost $120 million to make, but earned only $44 million domestically.

And we are already seeing signs that Warners is disconnecting their movie from the show, since Jonny will be much older, with Zac Efron (High School Musical) currently lined up to play the role.

Speed Racer bomber because it was 2 1/2 hours, and was painful to watch. Not to mention the cartoon sucked back in the day anyway. If they don't want to call the movie Jonny Quest maybe they just shouldn't make a Jonny Quest movie to begin with.

Yeah, some of us wanted to watch Speed Racer until the trailer came out and we saw that it was a crazy techno-nightmare.

Great Story, can't wait for this movie! Efron is the next big action hero!

Ummm no- their reasoning here is retarded. Yeah...Transformers, the Flintstones, Charlie's Angels- they TOTALLY flopped by sticking to their titles pffft. Speed Racer bombed because it gave old ass critics migraines and bad word of mouth killed the opening gross.
