    Robert Rodriguez has signed on to direct the movie.
    Though the series didn't last long during its initial run in primetime on ABC, the show found a new audience in syndication in the '80s,

    Producing the "Johnny Quest" film will be Dan Lin, who helped build the "Lego Movie" franchise.

    In an earlier incarnation that stalled in 2010, Zac Efron had been attached in the title role.

    There is no way, no how, in this PC universe where we live, that an Indian boy will be named Haji REGARDLESS of whether or not that was his character's name.

    before peter jackson started working on 'the hobbit' he was going to remake the 'based on a true story' wwii movie 'the dam busters' the dog featured in the film was named 'Reggie'...they were gonna rename him 'digger'

    Reggie
    was a male black labrador retriever belonging to Wing Commander Guy Gibson, V.C., D.S.O., D.F.C. of the Royal Air Force, and the mascot of No. 617 Squadron. Gibson owned the dog when he was previously a member of 106 Squadron. Reggie often accompanied Gibson on training flights[1] and was a great favourite of the members of both 106 and 617 Squadrons. He was noted for his liking of beer, which he drank from his own bowl in the Officers' Mess.[2]

    Reggie died on 16 May 1943, the day before the famous "Dam Busters" raid, when he was hit by a car. He was buried at midnight as Gibson was leading the raid. "Reggie" (Morse code: -. .. --. --. . .-. ) was the codeword Gibson used to confirm the breach of the Möhne Dam. Reggie's grave is at Royal Air Force station Scampton, Lincolnshire.[1]

    [sigh] Is there not one single original idea left in Hollywood? They must be running out of 1960s TV shows to reboot by now. How soon before they make My Mother the Car into a feature?

    I LOVED Jonny Quest when I was a kid!

    God, it was SO non-PC! From the sniveling Asian, South American, Indian (dot, not feather), Egyptian, and Mexican people that Jonny and the crew ran into, to the non-intelligible gibberish spoken by the African and Amazonian natives, it was GREAT!

    I always loved the closing scene where the Zulus, literally, chucked their collective spears at the jet as the doors closed and it took off.

    I was watching a re-run that I taped and called my son in to watch the closing credits, and asked him if he thought it was racist; during his laughter, he said, "of course it is!" which just made it all the funnier.



    This is a pretty funny mashup!

    I always loved the Theme song from Johnny Quest. That spider robot scared the crap out of me when I was 5.
