Jonny Quest Becomes A Film

Classic 1960’s Hanna-Barbera sci-fi adventure series “Jonny Quest” will be revived as a potential feature film franchise by Warner Bros. Pictures reports the trades.

Dan Mazeau (“Land of Lost Things”) has been hired to pen the screenplay for the project which will be produced by Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter (“Hitman”).

“Quest” told the thrilling stories of a young boy who accompanied his scientist father on extraordinary escapades investigating scientific mysteries around the world.

Joining him was his adopted brother from Calcutta, his pet bulldog pup, and the government agent assigned to protect them. The original one-season series was revived in the 80’s and 90’s on the Cartoon Network.

A new series was introduced in the late 1980s as were other revivals. Richard Donner and Lauren Shuler Donner previously attempted to bring ‘Quest’ to the big screen in 1994.
