Warner Bros. is in the early stages of launching a new live-action Scooby-Doo feature, Deadline reports.
Less than 48 hours after Casey Kasem -- the radio personality who voiced Shaggy in the classic Hanna Barbera Scooby-Doo cartoons -- passed away, screenwriter Randall Green has reportedly been set to write the script that makes Fred, Daphne, Shaggy and Velma interesting to a new generation.
The studio previously made a live-action comedy out of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon in 2002. That effort was directed by Raja Gosnell (The Smurfs) and starred Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard, Linda Cardellini and Isla Fisher as the young sleuths. The film grossed $268 million worldwide, and Warner Bros. and Gosnell made a sequel, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed (which made $181 million), two years later.
