Warner Bros. is in the early stages of crafting a Scooby Doo reboot for the big screen, with the studio hiring Randall Green to write the screenplay.
It isn't known if it will be a live-action version like 2002's Scooby Doo and the 2004 sequel Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, or if it will be an animated feature like the original Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! TV series.
Raja Gosnell directed both Scooby Doo and Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, which starred Freddie Prinze Jr. as Fred, Sarah Michelle Gellar as Daphne, Matthew Lillard as Shaggy, Linda Cardellini as Thelma and Neil Fanning as the voice of Scooby Doo. The original Scooby Doo made $275 million worldwide from an $84 million production budget in 2002, although the 2004 sequel Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed didn't fare quite as well, pulling in $181.4 million worldwide.
Sony is planning a similar reboot with its franchise The Smurfs. After two live-action features that blended in CGI elements, they are creating a completely CG animated movie for the upcoming Untitled Smurfs Movie in 2016. Could Warner Bros. be planning something similar?
The project is still in very early stages, and doesn't have a director or any cast members attached yet. Who would you like to see play Fred, Daphne, Shaggy, Themla and Scooby-Doo in this remake? Chime in with your thoughts below.
