Exclusive : Efron talks Jonny Quest

Exclusive : Efron talks Jonny Quest
Clint

A couple of weeks ago, The Rock told us a little bit about a potential live-action “Jonny Quest” movie that he and “Race to Witch Mountain” director Andy Fickman are circling. According to the big guy, there’d been discussions with ‘it’ boy of the moment Zac Efron about playing the title role.

I caught up with Efron today in Melbourne, where he’s promoting the upcoming “17 Again”, and managed to question the actor about his potential involvement in the film.

“Yeah, Yeah… it’s a great idea; it’d be very fun”, Efron said.

The actor says the project is only in its infantile stage – noting that it’ll take years to put this one together.

“It’s a long, long process. It’s so hard when people start leaking titbits. They’re very, very early on [with it] – not that it won’t happen happen, it’s just early.”

Efron continues, “People legitimately said to me today, ‘So Footloose is coming out, right?’ I’m like ‘No. The script is coming out’.”

So a “Jonny Quest” movie is still a couple of years away then?

“Most definitely”, says the amiable actor.

For those that don’t recall, the animated series (first aired in the 60s) told of a boy, 11-year-old Jonny, who accompanies his father, Dr. Benton Quest, on extraordinary adventures. Fearing Jonny could end up in the wrong hands, a special agent / bodyguard / pilot from Intelligence One Government, Race Bannon, is hired to guard and train him.

Zac Efron will play the title role, with Dwayne Johnson as his Race Bannon
