Animated Scooby-Doo Film Planned for Theaters


Another Scooby-Doo film is headed to theaters, Variety reports, but this one is set to take an animated approach to the Hanna-Barbera characters. Matt Lieberman (the planned Short Circuit remake) will provide the screenplay.

Created in 1969 by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears, “Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!” introduced the world to a group of four mystery-solving teens, Daphne, Fred, Shaggy and Velma and their cowardly talking dog, Scooby-Doo. The past few decades have seen numerous television spinoffs, two live-action feature films and a number of direct-to-home video projects.

No plot details have been given as of yet and it is currently unclear whether the film will embrace CGI animation or make use of a more traditional hand-drawn style.

Charles Roven and Richard Suckle are set to produce through Atlas Entertainment.
