Live Action Scooby-Doo Direct To DVD Prequel In The Works

SdLOS ANGELES (RUSHPRNEWS) AUGUST 5, 2008–If you wanted another Scooby Doo film, were hoping for a prequel, and wanted none of the original cast …then do I have a scoop for you!

The following news was made available to us from the professionals at Variety:

A third live-action “Scooby-Doo” movie is going straight to DVD and the Cartoon Network in fall 2009.

Direct-to-platform production arm Warner Premiere will begin principal photography on Monday in Vancouver on “Scooby-Doo: The Beginning,” a prequel to the two live-action theatrical “Scooby-Doo” pics Warner released in 2002 and 2004 that jointly yielded $458 million in global box office revenue.

I have managed to skip the previous two Scooby Doo live action films after hearing they were horrible from friends. I enjoy the cartoon and didn’t feel the need to see a live action Scooby Doo, never mind one that people were warning me to stay away from.

It’ s a bit curious that they will release this film on DVD and on television. The TV release could serve as a commercial to those that care to see it again. For the most part however, I would guess that showing it on TV would hurt sales of the DVD. I could be wrong, but if I have the options of buying or free; free usually wins.

International Friends – Will you be watching this on TV, Picking up the DVD or watching for birds instead?
