Warner planning Scooby-Doo reboot

Warner Bros. is planning to reboot one of its classic franchises, with news emerging online that Scooby-Doo is set to get another go-around at the cinema.

Deadline reports that Warner is set to dust off the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon for a second crack at a big-screen adaptation, after the live-action version released back in 2002.

That film might have received a bit of a critical kicking, but still managed to bring in $275 million at the global box office, a sizeable enough return to guarantee a sequel was made two years later.

Details on the new film are extremely scarce, so we've no idea whether this one will be animated, live-action or a mixture of the two, although intuition would have us leaning towards the latter.

Randall Green is currently working on a script, with Charles Roven in place to produce. No director has been appointed as yet.

George is GR's resident movie news person, based out of London. He understands that all men must die, but he'd rather not think about it.
