Warner Bros. is exploring a live-action “Scooby-Doo” movie, a year after announcing that it was developing an animated Scooby-Doo feature film.
The studio is in talks with Randall Green to write a live-action script. Variety reported last August that Warner was returning to the franchise with Matt Lieberman writing an animated script.
The “Scooby-Doo” reboot is set up with Atlas Entertainment with Charles Roven and Richard Suckle –who produced 2002′s “Scooby-Doo” for Warner Bros., mixing live action actors with the titular Great Dane, which was computer-generated — are producing.
The first film generated $275 million worldwide with Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard, Linda Cardellini and Isla Fisher starring. A “Monsters Unleashed” sequel followed in 2004 with $180 million.
The original animated TV series “Scooby-Doo: Where Are You?” was created by Hanna-Barbera and first aired in 1969.
