"High School Music" star Zac Efron has signed on to play the title role in Warner Bros.' planned live action version of the popular '60s Hanna-Barbera cartoon show "Jonny Quest." In the original animated series from 1964 - 65, which lasted a mere 26 episodes, the blond and brainy Jonny (who was voiced by Tim Matheson) was the 11-year-old son of scientist Dr. Benton Quest. Along for the adventure was Hadji Singh, the gifted 11-year-old Calcutta orphan who was adopted by Dr. Quest, and Race Bannon.
The sixth and final installment of the popular series finds John McClane heading out on one last mission to save the world from certain doom.
