Johnny Quest is an upcoming animated film by Warner Bros. It is based on Jonny Quest.

Production[edit]

In the early 1990s, Turner planned a "Year of Jonny Quest" marketing campaign to feature a new television series, the release of classic episodes on VHS, the creation of two new animated movies in classic continuity (Jonny's Golden Quest and Jonny Quest vs. The Cyber Insects), and the production of a live-action film.[1][2][3] Director Richard Donner, producer Lauren Shuler Donner, and Jane Rosenthal optioned the rights for the live action film, having expressed interest in the property soon after Turner's acquisition of Hanna-Barbera.[4][5][6] Slated to begin production in mid-1995 with a screenplay written by Fred Dekker, and filming was pushed back to 1996 and ultimately never began.[7] By early 1996, the project had already fallen well-behind development of other films, such as a live-action Jetsons movie.[8]

Zac Efron and Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson were reported in 2009 to have been cast as Jonny Quest and Race Bannon in an upcoming live action movie, respectively, according to a Moviehole.com interview with Johnson.[9]

In May 2015, it was announced that Robert Rodriguez would direct a live-action version, with a script co-written by Rodriguez and Terry Rossio.[10] Adrian Askarieh has stated to IGN that the film will be Indiana Jones meets James Bond with a PG-13 rating.[11][12][13]

In July 2016, Forbes reported that the film would start a franchise after the script by Rodriguez and Rossio and with either Joe Cornish, Justin Lin and Scott Derrickson to direct the film which will Jonny's position in the film as "Harry Potter inside an Indiana Jones movie" and specifically sets the film up with potential for spinoffs, also the script took inspiration from a few specific stories and elements in the original 1960s TV show. The site reported that the studio was considering actors Idris Elba, Bradley Cooper and Will Smith for the role of Race Bannon.[14]

In November 2018, Warner Bros. announced that the movie would be directed by Chris McKay.[15]
