Ruh-Roh! Dax Shepard tapped to direct new Scooby-Doo movie

Dax Shephard (star of PUNK'D and Dane Cook's EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH) has just signed on to co-direct a SCOOBY-DOO animated feature alongside animation vet Tony Cervone (director of straight-to-DVD films like SCOOBY-DOO AND KISS: ROCK AND ROLL MYSTERY and FLINTSTONES & WWE: STONE AGE SMACKDOWN, which are somehow things that exist because life is chaos with no inherent meaning).

There's no official synopsis for the film, but my guess is Scooby-Doo and the gang will go investigate a spooky mansion/amusement park/farm, get chased by some monster, who will then be unmasked by "those meddling kids" as someone with an overly complicated plot to get money/a deed/raise property values. Velma will say "Jinkies", Daphne and Freddy will have smoldering sexual tension, and Scooby and Shaggy will be obviously high-as-balls the whole time.  

No release date has been set for SCOOBY-DOO, but Shepard's next film will be an adaptation of the popular TV show CHiPs, which he'll write, direct, and co-star with Michael Pena. It will be released in theaters August 11th, 2017. 

 

Extra Tidbit: James Gunn (SLITHER, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY) wrote the script for the first live-action SCOOBY-DOO movie.

Could be all right

Tony Cervone also helped develop Scooby-Doo: Mystery Inc., which I consider the best animated version of Scooby-Doo ever aired (and that includes the original series). If they keep some of that vibe, then this could be worth watching.

Scooby Doo Mystery Inc. is surprisingly good. Some of the Scooby Doo's crossover are pretty good as well.
