Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson are teaming up in the Jonny Quest movie as Jonny and his bodyguard Race Banning. Anyone else wondering why this wasn't a Venture Brothers film instead?
According to Moviehole Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron have both signed on for the Jonny Quest movie. Is there still any demand for this movie?
The movie will probably follow the same course as the show, where a young Jonny Quest (Efron), his body guard Race Banning (Johnson), his father Dr. Quest and a group of changing "others" go on wild adventures.
According to Johnson:
"I don't know if you've read the latest [draft] but it's awesome and it's badass and I haven't read, this is what I told everyone over at Warner Bros., and I love the studio too by the way, you know, I had my experience with them with Get Smart and they were great, I hadn't read an action script like that in a LONG time. And that action was unbelievable. That will happen."
Ok so maybe if they make it super-duper action packed and leave the Bandit cameo to a minimum, it could be entertaining. But it just screams Starsky And Hutch movie to me, and not in a funny Vince Vaughn-had-a-few-good-lines kind of way. But let's see who else they bring on board.
