Live-Action ‘Scooby-Doo’ in the Works

The beloved mystery-solving gang is getting another makeover. Warner Bros. has announced that they are planning a live-action ‘Scooby-Doo’ feature film, to be penned by writer Randall Green. Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven and Richard Suckle from 2002’s ‘Scooby-Doo’ return to produce.

The 2002 “Scooby-Doo” live-action film was financially (but not critically) successful, earning $275 million. The 2004 sequel “Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed” marked the death of the franchise after making much less than the first: $180 million. These films starred Freddie Prince Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard, Linda Cardellini, and a CGI Scooby.

Warner Bros. wants another chance at a live-action CGI hybrid for the crime fighting pooch to be introduced to a whole new generation. Hopefully the reboot will have a better mixture of humor for kids and adults, old-time fans and newcomers, akin to the recent series “Scooby-Doo: Mystery Incorporated.”

Do you think a ‘Scooby-Doo’ reboot is a good idea? What would you like to see in the reboot? Sound off in the comments below!
