Warner Bros. Plans 'Scooby-Doo' Movie Reboot
Warner Bros. is in the early stages of crafting a Scooby Doo reboot for the big screen, with the studio hiring Randall Green to write the screenplay.

It isn't known if it will be a live-action version like 2002's Scooby Doo and the 2004 sequel Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, or if it will be an animated feature like the original Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! TV series.

Raja Gosnell directed both Scooby Doo and Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, which starred Freddie Prinze Jr. as Fred, Sarah Michelle Gellar as Daphne, Matthew Lillard as Shaggy, Linda Cardellini as Thelma and Neil Fanning as the voice of Scooby Doo. The original Scooby Doo made $275 million worldwide from an $84 million production budget in 2002, although the 2004 sequel Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed didn't fare quite as well, pulling in $181.4 million worldwide.

Sony is planning a similar reboot with its franchise The Smurfs. After two

New Release: Sinbad and The Minotaur DVD

SyFy’s latest Original Movie Sinbad and the Minotaur, which premiered last week as part of SyFy’s “Saturday Night Creature Feature” series, will arrive on DVD on Aug. 30 from Entertainment One.

Bennett plays Sinbad, sailor, adventurer and all-around ass-kicker, who is hot on the trail of a priceless treasure that he learned about from an ancient scroll chronicling the exploits of the pirate captain Minos from many years past. Battling the evil sorcerer Al-Jibar (Steven Grives, Scooby Doo) and getting a helping hand from the recently freed, scantily clad slave girl Tara (Holly Brisley,

The film is now available on region 2 DVD via Chelsea Films, with no extra features to speak of other than a basic trailer.

Intrigued by rumours of the existence of ancient hidden treasure concealed on an island once ruled by King Minos, Sinbad infiltrates the camp of the evil sorcerer Al-Jibar to steal an ancient relic, the “King Minos Chronicles”, that will lead him to the location of the golden head of the Colossus of Rhodes.
