Chris McKay To Helm Johnny Quest Movie

Quote:
Deadline has confirmed that The Lego Batman Movie director Chris McKay has been set to direct a live-action feature take on the 1960s Hanna-Barbera animated series Jonny Quest for Warner Bros.

Created by Doug Wildey, the series followed a young boy on global adventures with his scientist father, adopted brother Hadji, and their bodyguard Race Bannon. Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich of Rideback are producing with Prime Universe’s Adrian Askarieh. Daniel Alter will serve as EP. Robert Rodriguez was previously attached to the project with screenplay drafts by Terry Rossio and Dan Mazeau.

McKay was also an editor on The Lego Movie, and a producer on The Lego Ninjago Movie, and he’s set to produce Warner’s Wile E. Coyote Movie.

Johnny Quest is one of those series that I think could be a huge hit, it's basically a kid who is a hybrid Indiana Jones/James Bond.

Well, since we are in a time where women are more prominently featured in cinema and TV shows I'm wondering if they will either revamp Jessie Bannon from The Real Adventures of Johnny Quest or just create a new female character. Jessie didn't bother me the way that Venus de Milo did in Ninja Turtles: Next Mutation. She was no Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, but I did like her fine.

I always liked Johnny Quest, because the weird things in it were real weird things and not just Scooby-Doo villains with high tech tricks. I remember a lot of episodes being borderline horror, which is very much up my alley.

Yeah. He had great villains, too! Doctor Surd and his crew, Ezekiel Rage, Dr. Zin (or Xin, depending on who spelled it...)

I dunno, I think Jessie was very much equivalent to Barbara Gordon in the first season. But then in Season 2, they scaled her back, put her in pink, made her more a damsel in distress...

My online Johnny Quest experience is the mid-90s series and I remember very little of it, except it was fun and had an awesome opening theme.

Jonny Quest like all the other HB franchises has a weird history, you have the original 60s show which is the "classic" the sequels looked back to like with Scooby Doo. I personally found the 60s show so boring and I hated the show. Then you have the new adventures 80s revival which was only some new episodes and edited versions of the 60s now censored for time/new standards, I'm pretty sure I never watched the 80s show but it looks rather 80s. Then later there were 2 TV movies which I also don't think I ever saw.

Then we get to the real adventures which I randomly caught and fell in love with, I couldn't believe this was actually cool unlike the original show. But then the second season was rather weird and I didn't like it and soon after the show disappeared. And you can now read about how it was production hell, executives didn't like the show they were making (the cool first season) so they fired them and made an entirely different show with a new team that tried to mimic the original show which had been the original idea but later cancelled midway through production so instead they just finished those episodes or something of the like so a lot of drama.

Love the original series but the other incarnations, not so much.

Personally I wish Brad Bird was directing. He is a fan of the series and seeing how good both Incredibles movies turned out.

I also wish it was a period piece that took place in the 60's like the original series.

Same here. This new movie sounds good, though.

I hope this movie has all the fantastical elements that were in the original series.

There's this really awesome remake of the classic intro done in stop motion animation.

Here are some of my dream casting choices:

*Tom Holland as Johnny.

*Ewan McGregor as Dr. Quest.

*Dwayne Johnson or Bruce Willis as Race.

Hadji could be played by a newcomer or an up-and-coming actor. If they do decide to include Jessie, then Sadie Stanley from the upcoming live-action Kim Possible movie would be a great choice. I'm curious to see if Bandit will be an actual dog or a CGI character.
