The most awesome TV cartoon of the '60s is coming to a theater near you!

Robert Rodriguez (Sin City, Spy Kids and Machete) has been tapped to do a live-action remake of Jonny Quest, which only ran for one season in 1964, but has gained a loyal following in syndication and on cable.

Rodriguez will also co-write the screenplay with Pirates of the Caribbean screenwriter Terry Rossio.

In 2009 there were rumors of a Jonny Quest remake with Zac Efron playing the title role, and Dwayne Johnson as Race Bannon, but, unfortunately, that never came to fruition. Let's hope this one makes it to the big screen!
