Deadline reports that Ken Jeong (Community, The Hangover) and Kiersey Clemons (Dope) have signed on for Warner Bros. new Scooby Doo movie, simply titled Scoob.
The pair will be playing other Hanna-Barbera characters in the film with Jeong set to voice the character Dynomutt and Clemons voicing Dee Dee Skyes from Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels.
They join a cast that includes a new generation of “meddling kids” with Zac Efron as Fred Jones, Amanda Seyfried as Daphne Blake, Will Forte as Norville “Shaggy” Rogers, Gina Rodriguez as Velma Dinkley, Tarcy Morgan as Dick Dastardly, and Frank Wekler as Scooby-Doo
A few weeks after landing Will Forte, Tracy Morgan and Gina Rodriguez for the project, Warner Bros. has signed on Neighbors‘ Zac Efron and Ted 2‘s Amanda Seyfried to star in the upcoming animated Scooby-Doo film, according to Variety.
The film, which is being entitled Scoob and is being written by Matt Lieberman (The Addams Family) and directed by Tony Cervone (Space Jam), will follow the mystery-solving group as they must team up with other characters from the Hanna-Barbera universe to save the world from supervillain Dick Dastardly.
The project, produced by Chris Columbus, Charles Roven and Allison Abbate, will bring back those pesky kids and their pal Scooby, all of whom were last seen on the big screen in 2004’s live action misfire Scooby-Doo 2: Monster’s Unleashed.
Scoob is slated to hit theaters on May 15, 2020.
