Warner Bros. preparing to reboot Scooby-Doo


It wasn’t that long ago, 12 years to be exact, since the lovable super-sleuthing pooch Scooby-Doo came crashing onto the big screen in his first live-action adventure.

While 12 years may seem like a long time, and in some rights it is, it is certainly not that long in terms of rebooting a franchise; however, it would seem that this is just what Warner Bros. plans on doing.

According to Deadline, Warner Bros. is already in the beginning stages of bringing a new Scooby-Doo to life on the big screen.

Now, at this point there are not a lot of details floating around about the production. There is no word on where the plot will take us, what kind of villainous enemies that Mystery Incorporated may face, or even who will be taking up the roles of Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, or the voice of the lovable Scooby-Doo.

What we do know, thanks to Deadline, is that Randall Green has been placed at the helm to create Scooby and the gang’s new adventure.

While I still assert that it is a little early to be remaking a film, I can’t say that I am not interested or that I can’t see why they would be looking to recapture some of the magic of the previous film.

Raja Gosnell, who went on to direct other family films like Beverly Hills Chihuahua and The Smurfs franchise, brought the live-action Scooby-Doo to life in 2002 starring Freddie Prinze Jr., his now wife Sarah Michelle Gellar, Linda Cardellini, and Matthew Lillard.

The film earned a good chunk of its $84 million budget back on the film’s opening weekend where it earned $54.2 million. Scooby-Doo went on to earn $275.5 million worldwide and spawned a sequel just two years later.

As I said, there are still many details to be put into place before we can start talking cast and release dates, but at least we know now that our favorite mystery-solving team and their lovable dog will be heading back to the big screen sometime soon.
