We interrupt this broadcast:  
With some Jonny Quest news.



Apparently Dwayne The Rock Johnson had this to say to AOL:

8. What can you tell us about 'Jonny Quest'?

Right now we're just still redeveloping, if you will, what that movie will be. That's with myself and Andy [Fickman] and Zac Efron, but it's still in the developmental stage. Zac is my buddy -- I like Zac -- and I think that we would make a great pairing.


I have no idea where this came from, but if it is true, I expect we might here this again elsewhere as both Dwayne and Zac are doing promo.

ETA:

Jonny Quest was an animated Hanna-Barbera series where Jonny Quest was a kid who went on all sorts of adventures. It also had a spinoff The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest which featured Jonny as a teenager.

The script for this was on the blacklist last year which means it is a pretty hot property. So it could be a really good project. I think that version of the script had Jonny as a kid so the redevelopment is probably retooling to make Jonny a teen for Zac to play.

Of all the comic/manga adaptations this is not the one I'd choose for him, I'd choose Death Note or Harbinger. But he needs some variety. Plus if the movie is with The Rock, it doesn't put all of the weight of its success on Zac. So it might be a good transitional film.

I'm interested to see how Race to Witch Mountain goes to see how The Rock's box office is trending. If it does great, it speaks well for this project. As long as it doesn't get out of control, artistically speaking, like Speed Racer.

I dont know how I feel about this tbh. Im not a big fan of the rock. And Speed Racer bombed I dont want that for Zac. But if he does it I will support it.

Is this Johnny Quest something I should have heard of if it's being "redeveloped"?? I don't know anything about it.

Thanks. I thought it was a cartoon but didn't know why it was a big deal now.

LOLOL BUT I KIND OF LIKE THE ROCK.

I am with this thing where I think Zac is a comedian and charming, more than anything, so he should continue to do hilarious shit. And Johnny Quest? Hysterical. Especially the stoner version in my mind, with Kal Penn. BUT ALSO THE AWESOME VERSION WITH DEV PATEL, IT ALL WORKS.

We all thought HSM3 would suck so you know - a little faith!

My Dad loves Jonny Quest, I would totally make him go see this with me. So I hope it's true!!

According to my friend at the premiere, a girl just arrived clad in a wedding gown and holding a "will you marry me" sign. No joke.
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on March 11th, 2009 05:32 am (UTC)
OMG please tell me she got a pic.
butterflybee260butterflybee260 on March 11th, 2009 05:33 am (UTC)

:o

lmao. wow.
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on March 11th, 2009 05:33 am (UTC)
what other details has she got so far?
It's Audrey not Aubreyaudrey_za on March 11th, 2009 05:46 am (UTC)
She did and I feel awful posting it online. I'm talking floor length (wrinkled) white satin gown.

Other deets:
-Earlier no one was there (they arrived nearly first)
*they is 3 other girls who visit Fan forum.
-Was overcast/sprinkling earlier today
-School got out and the crowd, as they assumed, started to grow.
-LOTS of promo/posters set up
-There was some worry over barriers/where to stand earlier b/c it's apparantly a rather complicated layout.

I'm trying to get details on what other cast members are set to show up.
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on March 11th, 2009 05:48 am (UTC)
i am mainly interested in/worried about the crowd size, but if you want to email me the pic i swear to god i will not post it, i just need to see this. omg.
It's Audrey not Aubreyaudrey_za on March 11th, 2009 05:48 am (UTC)


It's from behind, so her identity is obscured. (tbh I'd do the same if in the situation and take a picture, haha)
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on March 11th, 2009 05:48 am (UTC)
omg awesome.
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on March 11th, 2009 05:49 am (UTC)
more pics if you have them once tagged would be awesome for an ontd post. (but that won't be for awhile anyway).
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on March 11th, 2009 05:51 am (UTC)
i could never be that awesome. and although i'm laughing i'm really serious.

i couldn't even do legit harry potter cosplay when we went to a big party in nyc for the sixth book. lol. i made up t-shirts to be subversive and subtle. like my favorite t-shirt was for ogden's old firewhiskey.

but yeah, no way could i be that forward.
It's Audrey not Aubreyaudrey_za on March 11th, 2009 05:59 am (UTC)
There's no way. I mean, there's making a sign and then there's... well, this.

lol

Even our very recent conversation aside, I like this project more and more - for all the reasons stated back when the first rumor hit.

I think this could be a good project for him. A very good transitional project as you've called it.

In case you didn't see the actual source yet. It's from a new moviephone interview. The specific comment in question is here
