LOS ANGELES (RUSHPRNEWS) AUGUST 5, 2008–If you wanted another Scooby Doo film, were hoping for a prequel, and wanted none of the original cast â€¦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 â€œScooby-Dooâ€ 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 â€œScooby-Doo: The Beginning,â€ a prequel to the two live-action theatrical â€œScooby-Dooâ€ 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 didnâ€™t feel the need to see a live action Scooby Doo, never mind one that people were warning me to stay away from.
Itâ€™ 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?
