Robert Rodriquez is officially attached to direct the live-action adaptation of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon JONNY QUEST for Warner Bros. The story follows young Jonny Shelton, who teams up with a government agent to stop an evil terrorist from unleashing the powers of an ancient Hindu god. The project has been in development at the studio for many years, and most recently saw Pete Segal attached to direct last year. Richard Donner was also previously attached to direct before Segal. Dan Mazeau has written the previous screenplay, with Rodriquez and Terry Rossio set to do re-writes.
Known for directing the genre films From Dusk ’til Dawn and Machete, Rodriquez has previously worked in the family genre on the Spy Kids series, directing all four entries in the series.
Rodriquez is repped by WME.
