Robert Rodriguez may be best known for his violent action/crime flicks like Sin City and Desperado, but he's also directed some successful children's adventure movies such as Spy Kids and Sharkboy and Lavagirl, making him a good fit for Warner Bros.' live-action adaptation of '60s Hanna-Barbera animated series, Jonny Quest. According to THR, he'll direct and co-write with Terry Rossio (The Lone Ranger, Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
The show focused on the globe-trotting adventures of young Jonny Quest and his father. They were accompanied by Jonny's dog Bandit, a Kolkatan orphan named Hadji, and government agent/bodyguard Race Bannon. It originally ran for only one season, but has since spawned '90s cartoon revivals and comic books.
Rodriguez and Rossio are rewriting Dan Mazeau's original script, with Dan Lin and Adrian Askarieh on board as producers.
