Yesterday, it was announced that Warner Brothers is planning to make a live-action Scooby-Doo reboot to appeal to a new generation. Screenwriter, Randall Green, is set to write the script.
This news comes shortly after the death of Casey Kasem, who voiced Shaggy in the original Hanna-Barbera cartoons.
Not much else is known about the reboot, but after the success of the previous Scooby-Doo live-action movies (with the first garnering $268 million and the sequel making $181 million worldwide) this isn’t too surprising, especially since movie companies seem to be on a trend on rebooting almost everything lately, from The Powerpuff Girls to The Lion King.
It has been ten years since the first live-action films, which stared Freddie Prinze Jr. as Fred, Sarah Michelle Gellar as Daphne, Matthew Lillard as Shaggy, Linda Cardellini as Velma, and Neil Fanning voicing Scooby.
