The HITMAN Movie Guys Take Aim At JOHNNY QUEST!!

Merrick again...
JOHNNY QUEST is on his way to the big screen in a live action movie for Warners. This has been in the wind eternally but never really come together until now. It'll be produced by Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter, who are also bringing us the forthcoming HITMAN. Dan Mazeau is currently scripting.
First broadcast in 1964 and inspired by radio shows, comic strips and James Bond movies, the primetime sci-fi adventure series aired on ABC, then spent the next two decades in reruns. "Quest" told the thrilling stories of Quest, a young boy who accompanied his scientist father on extraordinary escapades. Also in the mix was his adopted brother from Calcutta, his pet bulldog pup, and the government agent assigned to protect them. The show, which was noted for its realistic portrayal of people, was canceled not because of low ratings but because it was too expensive to produce.
...says THIS ARTICLE in Hollywood Reporter. This series is a personal favorite of mine. It's hard not to be a little apprehensive about any adaptation of this nature, but this has the potential to be really, really cool. Between INDIANA JONES and this, it'll be great to have some genuine, large scale, non-pirate related high adventure back on the big screen. Let the casting speculation BEGIN!!!
