Feature Scoob

From Variety:

Warner Bros. is in negotiations with Dax Shepard to co-direct their latest “Scooby-Doo” animated film with “Space Jam” helmer Tony Cervone.

Charles Roven and Richard Suckle, who produced the last two “Scooby-Doo” live-action movies, will produce this as well. The studio has dated the film for Sept. 21, 2018.

Shepard will also co-write the screenplay with Matt Lieberman, while Dan Povenmire (“Family Guy”) executive produces. ...

The new “Scooby-Doo” will be a Warner Bros. Pictures presentation under the Warner Animation Group banner, which rose to prominence last year with “The Lego Movie.” ...

Since Mr. Shepard doesn't have a lot of background in cartoonland, Tony Cervone will probably act as guide through the thickets. It's not as if Mr. Shepard doesn't have directing experience. Just not with animators.

Plus, Dan Povenmire is an executive producer on the pic. Mr. Povenmire also knows his way around a cartoon studio.
