The upcoming animated Scooby-Doo film, which is titled Scoob, has found its new Fred and Daphne: Zac Efron and Amanda Seyfried, respectively.
Efron is known for his roles in a variety of films, including Baywatch, The Greatest Showman and Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile. Seyfried has appeared in such films as Mean Girls, Mamma Mia! and Fathers and Daughters.
They're joining Will Forte as Shaggy Rogers, Gina Rodriguez as Velma, Tracy Morgan as Captain Caveman and Frank Welker as Scooby. This film will mark the first time a Scooby-Doo film has hit the big-screen since 2004's Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed.
In Scoob, the spooked dog and his friends team up with other Hanna-Barbera characters to take on Dick Dastardly. The film is directed by Tony Cervone. Chris Columbus, Pam Coats and Allison Abbate are producing.
News of Warner Bros.' surprise recasting of Mystery Incorporated has shocked quite a few people, including Matthew Lillard. He played Shaggy in 2002's Scooby-Doo and Monsters Unleashed. He has voiced the animated version of the character since original voice actor Casey Kasem retired from the role in 2009.
Executive produced by Chuck Roven, Richard Suckle, Dan Povenmire, and Adam Sztykiel, Scoob is looking at a May 2020 release.
