Warner Bros Pic's 'Jonny Quest' Locks Zac Efron as Lead


Zac Efron
Retitled to simply 'Jonny Quest', movie adaptation of 'The Adventures of Jonny Quest' reportedly has secured Zac Efron for the titular role.


Zac Efron created quite a buzz when he decided to walk out of musical project "Footloose" earlier this year but he apparently has bigger plan in his head. Avoiding type-casting as he said previously, the "High School Musical" star prefers to join the cast of adventure flick "Jonny Quest" which has been renamed from "The Adventures of Jonny Quest".

Los Angeles Times is the first to report that Efron is indeed signed for the titular role in the adaptation movie. Still, no words from Efron's camp or Warner Bros have been released but should the report is true then, he may star alongside Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson who is also rumored taking the role of pilot Race Bannon.

The news about Efron taking the role of Jonny Quest has popped up late last year. The actor himself had responded to the casting report, saying that the movie version is "a great idea" and "would be very fun". He however, punched the line that the production was still years away and that "it's so hard when people start leaking titbits."

An adaptation from the 1960s animation, "Jonny Quest" is picked by WB Pictures for a premiere in U.S. in 2011. It tells about a boy, 11-year-old Jonny, who accompanies his father, Dr. Benton Quest, on extraordinary adventures. Fearing Jonny could end up in the wrong hands, a special agent from Intelligence One Government, Race Bannon, is hired to guard and train him.
