Scooby Doo

According to Variety, Warners is ready to answer the age-old question, “Scooby Doo, where are you?”

The studio is prepping an animated feature for the world’s most famous sandwich-eating dog with the same producers that worked to bring the 2002 live-action/CGI hybrid to life. Charles Roven and Richard Suckle will be producing from a script from Matt Lieberman who recently wrote the Short Circuit reboot. The studio isn’t revealing the concept, but they won’t get away with it if the meddling internet has anything to say.

The character has been through a ton of incarnations (the best, of course, involving the Harlem Globetrotters), but anytime someone plans new Scooby Doo, there’s a potential for goofy greatness. Naturally it’s difficult to see new stuff without Don Messick voicing Scoobs, but maybe there’s a great vocal talent that can do the character justice. Neil Fanning was passable in the live-action movies, and there’s a chance a CGI Doo was going to be alienating no matter what, but there might be someone even better out there.

If they can nail that down and come up with a fun mystery, this could be a good one. Glad to see there’s still interest in the gang.
