I grew up watching reruns of the 1960s animated series Jonny Quest. It was always fun to watch, but it wasn't one of my favorites. I don't really care that a live-action movie is going into development, but it's happening, and I guess there's an audience out there for it.
Grudge Match director Peter Segal talked to Comingsoon recently and revealed that he is currently developing the film saying,
"I would love to make that my next movie… We just hired a writer to do another pass. We already have a very good script. Then we go through budgeting hell and trying to get it into shape."
Segal has also directed films such as 50 First Dates, Get Smart, The Longest Yard, Tommy Boy, Anger Management and more. I'm not really sure what to expect from the movie, but I can't help but think it will be a mediocre film.
The original animated series ran from 1964 - 1965, and only lasted 26 episodes. The series centers on Jonny, the 11-year-old son of scientist Dr. Benton Quest. Along for the adventure was Hadji Singh, the gifted 11-year-old Calcutta orphan who was adopted by Dr. Quest, and Quest's tough and charistmatic bodyguard, Race Bannon.
