Are You Ready For A ‘Scooby-Doo’ Reboot?


I swear the time between when a film debuts and when its reboot is first announced shrinks by the week.

Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. is in the very early stages of developing a new Scooby-Doo reboot. This is not a rumor or an alleged title, but rather a full fledged project with a crew and people working to solidify a cast. The film will be a live action and CGI hybrid, much like the big screen version of the cartoon released in 2002. No additional details are available at this time.

Freddie Prinze Jr, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard, Linda Cardellini and Isla Fisher were essentially children when they portrayed the leads in the 2002 version of Scooby-Doo, which earned more than $250 million at the global box office. The film even spawned a sequel, Monsters Unleashed, but ticket sales were low. You can view a clip from the first adaptation below.

It’s incredibly unlikely that anyone from the last Scooby-Doo film will return for this series, but I don’t think it’s entirely out of the question to believe Matthew Lillard could play one of the cranky janitors who ‘would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for those meddling kids!’

We’ll bring you more information on the Scooby-Doo reboot as soon as more details can be confirmed. For now, comment below and let us know who you would like to see cast in the film.
