I’m not that big a fan of “Jonny Quest” or even Robert Rodriguez, but many of you know that The Mask of Zorro is my favorite film of all time. Knowing that Terry Rossio is working on this new project gives me hope, even if the remake has been in development limbo for nearly 20 years now.
Jonny Quest is back on. Robert Rodriguez has come aboard the adventure project, an adaptation of the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon, which has been dormant for the past several years. Moving the Warner Bros. adventure along is Terry Rossio, whose credits range from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies to The Mask of Zorro. Rodriguez and Rossio are rewriting the script initially penned by Dan Mazeau, with Rodriguez on board to direct. Dan Lin and Adrian Askarieh are producing.
I should mention that I’m only familiar with the more recent TV series for “Quest” that was made by Cartoon Network in the 90s. It was alright, but I suspect that the original Hanna-Barbera series was superior. I’m honestly surprised it’s been this long since someone besides “Robot Chicken” has tried to revitalize this franchise.
