The LEGO Batman Movie's Chris McKay has signed on to direct Warner Bros.'s live-action Jonny Quest movie, according to The Wrap. McKay reportedly replaces Robert Rodriguez, who was previously announced as director of the project.
Based on the popular 1960s cartoon series, a live-action Jonny Quest movie has been in talks since the 1990s - with Richard Donner even in talks at one time to helm the project.
Daniel Alter is executive producing Warner Bros.'s Jonny Quest film, with Rideback's Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich along with Prime Universe's Adrian Askarieh in line to produce.
In addition to Jonny Quest, McKay has signed on to direct an adaption of Dungeons & Dragons for Paramount and a Nightwing film for Warner Bros.
