Jonny Quest is making his way towards the multiplex. According to Variety, Warner Brothers has hired Hitman producers Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter to adapt the Hanna-Barbara sleuth for the silver screen.

Dan Mazeau will write this live-action version of the 1960s cartoon. The original version centered on a young boy and his scientist father, a pair of world travels always up for an adventure. They were accompanied by Bandit the bulldog and Jonny's adopted brother from India on their journeys across the globe.

While the show only lasted one season back in 1964, ABC later aired newer versions of the show in the late 80s. And it has since picked up a cult following on the Cartoon Network. The hope is to turn the first film into a family friendly franchise that will carry on for many years to come.

Look for the film to go into production soon.
