Principal photography for a new live-action/CGI Scooby-Doo film begins March 15 in Southern California, and Warner Home Video already has slated the DVD for early 2011.
Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster is a follow-up to the 2009 prequel Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins, and will air on Cartoon Network in fall 2010.
“After more than 40 years, the Scooby-Doo franchise continues to grow stronger as generations of audiences embrace these timeless characters, and that adoration has been clearly reflected in box office, DVD sales and television ratings,” said Eva Davis, EVP and GM of Warner Premiere. “These new live-action films, with their contemporary approach, bring excitement and thrills to an altogether new era of Scooby-Doo fans.”
To mark the start of production, Warner launched a Scooby-Doo Mystery Movie Sweepstakes March 12, with a grand prize giveaway of a trip for four to the set of the new film during filming.
