BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
It’s quite possible that we have now crossed the franchise event horizon. All properties that are capable of being turned into a “cinematic universe” will now see it done. We know this is true because Hanna-Barbera cartoons are now going this route.
Warner Bros. have big plans for a Hanna Barbera universe. Starting with a Scooby Doo reboot, which has one of the worst titles in movie history.
Warner Bros. has been working hard for years to try and get a new Scooby-Doo movie off the ground. It began in 2013, talk continued in 2014, and now in 2015 it looks like the project is actually happening. This is because the film now has both a set of producers attached and a new director.
Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you? Apparently soon heading back to theaters. Word has come down that the folks over at Warner Bros. are keen on running the nostalgia machine once again and are now making plans to bring the Mystery Machine-driving gang back to the big screen.
Though the studio is keeping the film’s plot a secret, we know that they’ve hired Matt Lieberman for script duties. A quick trip to IMDb isn’t going to get you very excited, as the only produced credit that Lieberman is 2008’s direct-to-video sequel Dr. Doolittle: Tail to the Chief.
Scooby-Doo has seen numerous reincarnations in its decades of existence, and the next movie, which is going straight to video (DVD, Blu-ray, VOD and digital download) will apparently see the Hanna-Barbera characters colliding with the professional wrestling world. And in turn, a number of professional wrestlers will go animated for the film. Want to see The Miz in cartoon form? It's on the way!
