Jonny Quest Is Now a Robert Rodriguez Movie That Probably Won’t Happen



Hate to sound cynical (no I don’t) given that Sin City 2 finally came out years after everyone stopped caring (I care), but wasn’t Robert Rodriguez supposed to be busy doing Fire and Ice as a mega-franchise at Sony? And before that, a new Heavy Metal movie? And before that, a new Red Sonja movie?

My point is that if you are in any way concerned that he might be the wrong guy to make a live-action Jonny Quest movie – a project that has just been announced – there’s little reason to worry. He likes to announce a lot of things. Danny Trejo would be amusing as Race Bannon, though.
