Johnny Quest aiming for cinemas

Johnny Quest is one of those projects that has been bobbing along on the Hollywood rumour foam for a long time. But now Warners and producer Adrian Askarieh believe it can make it onto screens.

Dan Mazeu is the man tasked with turning the 1960s cartoon – which saw the titular hero travelling the world with his scientist father, adopted brother, bulldog bandit and a handy government agent bodyguard and solving scientific mysteries – into a live-action film.

Could Johnny be Warners’ new kid-friendly franchise? Only time will tell, but first it really needs a finished script and that all-important greenlight.
