Ruh-Roh: Warner Bros. Rebooting SCOOBY-DOO

     June 17, 2014


Scooby-Doo is an iconic character, but his film franchise apparently needs to go back to the drawing board.  According to Deadline, Warner Bros. is ready to reboot Scooby-Doo.  The 2002 live-action/CGI picture grossed $275 million worldwide starred Matthew Lillard, Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Linda Cardellini as Shaggy, Fred, Daphne, and Velma, respectively with Neil Fanning providing the voice of Scooby-Doo.  The sequel, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed only grossed $181 million.

So does Scooby-Doo just need a hiatus and a new cast to be a hit again?  Deadline says they’re starting from scratch and “setting Randall Green to craft a new adventure.”  Spoiler: It was the old man who ran the amusement park.

    I actually like the cast from the previous films, and ‘Monsters Unleashed’ is better than the first. With that said, these live-action remakes of cartoons are never really that good. The first Flintstones film and the Scooby-Doo films are the best… and that is not saying much.

    Terrific! Colin Firth’s available!

    No joke, I think it would be interesting to do a nitty-gritty reboot (which retains some sense of humor). Something based on this classic concept of Velma:

    The first two films were so crappy, this is one franchise a reboot makes sense for.

    Great news. Hopefully they’ll make this reboot more gritty and real world based. I’m thinking scooby doo ala caeser in planet of the apes waging a war against alien ghosts invading the earth.

    Get Nolan and Bale on the line. Scooby is a WW2 military dog struggling with the ghosts of war, Sgt. Shaggy is his keeper that has turned to drugs to silence the voices in his head. One day they encounter the supernatural and recruit a team of kids to help some solve supernatural crimes. OR DID THEY ?

    I want a Scooby-Doo movie as seen through the eyes of The Venture Brothers, but that ain’t gonna happen.
