Washington, February 17 (ANI): The Rock a.k.a Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron might team up to star in the onscreen adaptation of 1960s animated classic The Adventures Of Johnny Quest.

Wrestler-turned-actor Johnson confirmed he would be playing the role of Race Bannon, the special agent who protects and train Johnny Quest, an 11-year-old who tags along with his doctor dad on incredible adventures.

“I don”t know if you”ve read the latest (draft) but it’’s awesome and it’’s badass and I haven”t read, this is what I told everyone over at Warner Bros., and I love the studio too by the way, you know, I had my experience with them with Get Smart and they were great, I hadn”t read an action script like that in a long time, Contactmusic quoted him as telling Moviehole.

And that action was unbelievable. That will happen, he added.

Meanwhile, High School Musical heartthrob Efron too has been tipped to star as Johnny Quest in the Warner Bros. project.

The 21-year-old hinted he would love to be a part of the film, adding: ””I loved Jonny Quest when I was a kid. If you go a little older, it gives you more, it allows you to be…it just gives you a bit more, you know.” (ANI)
