Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Velma, Daphne and Fred are headed back to theaters for a new adventure.
The announcement was made yesterday by by Greg Silverman, President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production, Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution, Sue Kroll, President of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President of Worldwide Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.
“Like countless fans, I have always loved the Hanna-Barbera cast of characters. As one of their most famous brand ambassadors, Scooby-Doo will take the lead in re-introducing this pantheon of enduringly popular animated stars on a grand scale with an exciting new movie,” said Silverman in a statement.
Kwan Vandenberg added, “Scooby-Doo and his friends have the kind of universal appeal that reaches across cultures as well as generations. We expect this new take on the franchise to generate even more fans around the world.”
The film, scheduled for a 2018 release, will reunite Oscar-nominated producers Charles Roven and Richard Suckle (American Hustle), who previously produced the hugely successful live-action features Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed.
No further details about the film’s plot or cast have been released, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as new information becomes available.
Scooby-Doo, the gang and the Mystery Machine are scheduled to head back to theaters September 21, 2018.
