Big screen Johnny Quest
Warner Bros. is now working on their newest kid television-to-movie adaptaion, JOHNNY QUEST. So far it looks like this movie will be directed by Andy Flickman, who just got done with Disney's RACE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN. As far as casting, they have chosen to pursue two actors for the movie's biggest characters.
For Race Bannon, Warner Bros. is attempting to snag Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. I have to admit that that could by a pretty decent casting decision. As for casting Johnny Quest they are attempting to wrangle in teen heart-throb Zac Efron, which I do not agree with!
I like the old JOHNNY QUEST cartoons and was even amused by the later modern television adaptations, so I had a preconceived idea of what Johnny should look like, and that look was far from the world of HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL. In the QUEST world, Johnny is a young 12-year-old boy. Efron is a 22 year old! Sure he looks like he is 18, but that is still a very big difference in age from 12. Plus Johnny is a blonde and I think Efron would look like quite a tool with blonde hair. I hate this casting decision and I hope it is to be fixed before any contracts are drawn. What do you readers think about this casting possibility? Who do you think should be cast?
