Zac Efron Signs For “Jonny Quest”

After rumors swirling since mid-last year, The Los Angeles Times has finally confirmed that Zac Efron has signed on to play the titular role in Warner Bros.’ planned live-action version of popular ’60s Hanna-Barbera cartoon “Jonny Quest”.

The site’s report also indicates that Warner Bros. have been considering changing the name of the property to avoid negative comparisons to last year’s flop “Speed Racer”. Dan Mazeau penned the script for the new adaptation.

“Race to Witch Mountain” helmer Andy Fickman and star Dwayne Johnson were previously rumored to be attached as well but no confirmation as yet.
