Chris McKay Directing Live-Action Jonny Quest


The Lego Batman Movie director Chris McKay is directing a live-action Johnny Quest movie for Warner Bros.

Created by Doug Wildey in 1964, the animated series follows a boy named Jonny Quest who accompanies his scientist father on extraordinary adventures along with adopted brother Hadji, and their bodyguard Race Bannon.

Regarding when Chris McKay starts on Johnny Quest is unknown as he has Dungeons and Dragons said to be up next and Nightwing in the works at Warner Bros. as well.

Chris McKay previously offered that his Nightwing movie will be bad ass.

“It’s gonna be a f-cking badass action movie with a lot of heart and emotion,” McKay previously told Collider. “It’s gonna be a crazy, fun ride. Whoever gets cast as Nightwing, and any of the other actors around, are gonna go through a f-cking boot camp experience because it’s gonna be a lot. I’m not gonna do a lot of CG. It’s gonna be all real sh-t. It’s gonna be real stuntwork, and they’re gonna need to do all of the stuff on camera and do it credibly. For the cast and the crew, it’s gonna be a visceral experience, and for the audience. It’s not gonna be like a lot of these movies where there’s a lot of CG and flying, and things like that. Everything he does is gonna have to be real. His superpower is being really f-cking good, as a human being, at fighting and gymnastics and sh-t like that, so you’re gonna see that on screen. It’s gonna be fun!”
