WB Developing Another SCOOBY DOO Film
You seriously thought Warner Brothers let a movie franchise die? Even Scooby Doo? Shame on you for thinking this. Hit the jump to find out more.
Exclusive from Variety, they found out that Scooby Doo is indeed getting another movie. "But what is different," you might ask? Well it is animated this time. The project has been set up with Atlas Entertainment with Charles Roven and Richard Suckle producing. Roven and Suckle also produced 2002′s “Scooby-Doo” for Warner Bros. mixing live action actors with a computer generated Great Dane, along with “Scooby-Doo: Monsters Unleashed” two years later.
The studio has tapped Matt Lieberman to write the script for the new project. Roven’s recent credits include Warner tentpoles “Man of Steel” and “The Dark Knight Rises.” He’s also a producer on David O. Russell’s upcoming “American Hustle” for Sony.
Lieberman recently finished an untitled project for Paramount Animation, as well as “Short Circuit” for Dimension with Tim Hill set to direct.
Lieberman just sold his spec “12/24” to Chris Columbus’ 1492 Pictures, based on an original idea from David Guggenheim with Madhouse Entertainment and Guggenheim producing. He also sold the spec “The Pet” to Disney with Scott Rudin producing and Jared Hess set to direct and wrote Disney’s “Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride” with Peter Candeland to direct as well as “Evil Genius” for the studio with Andrew Gunn producing.
Lieberman was previously in the Disney Writers Program. He’s repped by WME, Madhouse Entertainment and attorney Melissa Rogal.
Warner Bros. is keeping the logline under wraps. Jesse Ehrman is overeseeing “Scooby-Doo” for Warners.
