Hey, A Jonny Quest Movie!

Remember a couple of months ago when I wrote about why they haven't considered making a Jonny Quest live-action movie? Well, apparently somebody must've read my thoughts about the subject.

Yesterday, Warner Bros. announced that producers Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter are bringing the classic animated series to the big screen. They say they're using "Raiders of the Lost Ark" as the model and the recent "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies as the edge. And they want Race Bannon to be a former agent akin to Jason Bourne. Actually sounds promising, and considering the producers are echoing some of the same points I made here two months ago, I'm actually curious about how the franchise will be handled and if Warner Bros. Animation will actually reignite Jonny, Hadji, Race, Benton, and Bandit back in animated form.

Oh, what a time to be a JQ fan.

They should consult Jackson Publick for ideas.

Melon which rhymes with said...

For some reason I want Race Bannon to throw barrels at people...must be something from Freakazoid...
