Zac Efron Confirmed for "Jonny Quest"

Posted: April 13th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Zac Efron Confirmed for "Jonny Quest"Submit Comment
LA Times has now confirmed that Zac Efron (High School Musical) will indeed star in the upcoming adaptation of the "Jonny Quest" classic animated series. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is still in-talks to join Efron as Race Bannon.

The casting of Efron is a bit controversial, since Warner Bros has now made the original 11-year-old character more mature. The idea behind that decision is to make the film appeal to an older audience, who may not enjoy watching a child in the lead of a big-budget film.

Last year, "Speed Racer" underperformed at the box office and to avoid a similar result, the studio has decided not to use Jonny Quest's name in the title.

zac efron should make a movie called 'emo boy'...it would suit the 'never changing hair' look....warner bros shouldn't be making this a big budget movie, wasn't a big budget show to begin with....and why the hell is the studio changing the name?....like that's gonna make a big difference on how it performs in the box office?....people will respond by what they see in the trailer...even a poor idiot like me could figure that out...pixar has more maturity than that....for instance....no zac efron or miley cyrus in their films...i mean, i wouldn't mind them in the films, just as long as they're not playing a main character
