'Scooby-Doo' and the Gang Back for New Animated Film at Warner Bros
Following two successful live-action film adaptations in the early 2000s, Warner Bros. is going back to the well to bring Scooby-Doo and his human mystery-solving gang back to the big screen. However, Variety reports the film will be completely animated, though it's not specified whether the film will be in the style of the original cartoon series "Scooby-Doo: Where Are You?" or if it will be updated with computer animation. Matt Leiberman is behind the script after working on some sort of untitled animated project for Paramount Pictures, and he also scripted the remake of Short Circuit that's been gestating for awhile.
In addition, The Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel producer Charles Roven and his Atlas Entertainment banner are producing along with the company's Richard Suckle, both of whom also produced the live-action Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo: Monsters Unleashed. Even though the Hanna-Barbera cartoon is from the 60s and 70s, the scaredy dog and the whole gang are iconic cartoons that kids from every generation recognize today, with several different TV iterations spanning decades of Saturday morning entertainment. The question is who will they get to bring the characters of Fred, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo to life? Stay tuned as this project develops. Do you want new Scooby-Doo?
