Warner Bros is planning to release another Scooby-Doo movie, produced by Charles Roven and written by Randall Green
Warner Bros are planning a live-action reboot of 'Scooby-Doo'.
The studio announced last year that they were planning to develop a new animated 'Scooby Doo' movie but it's now been reported that they're exploring the idea of making it into a live-action feature, reports Deadline.com.
Warner Bros are said to be in talks with screenwriter Randall Green to create a live-action script for the film following previous reports that stated Matt Lieberman would be writing an animated script.
The same studio made a live-action version of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon in 2002 starring Freddie Prinze Jr, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard, Linda Cardellini and Isla Fisher and followed it up with a sequel two year's later.
Although the majority of the film was not animated, the titular character - Scooby Doo himself - was a computer generated animation.
Although the studio is now said to be "starting from scratch" with the new project, they may be looking to jump on the success of the previous flick by enlisting the help of original producer Charles Roven.
The reboot is set up with Atlas Entertainment and will be another live-action based on the original animated TV series 'Scooby-Doo: Where Are You', which first aired in 1969.
