Zac Efron may star in Warner Bros. new live action film The Adventures of Jonny Quest, reports
IESB. From the source: ‘Traditionally Jonny Quest has been a 12 year old boy in need of a caretaker [Race Bannon], that goes on fantastic adventures hence the name The Adventures of Jonny Quest.
But, with the new adaptation of the story, it looks like WB may be upping the age of the lead character.. seeing a 17-18 year old Quest in the form of Zac Efron. With Dwayne Johnson as his Race Bannon.
If WB had wised up and gone with Efron for Speed Racer instead of Emile Hirsch, it would have been a completely different movie and would have done much better at the box office.
That film needed the acceptance of the teen audience and it didn’t get it. Efron already has a built in audience, he’s money in the bank essentially that tweens and teens will go see regardless.’ Photo: Limelight.
