WB is making a new movie called S.C.O.O.B. They have interesting plans for it.

Quote
S.C.O.O.B. was described as “our first shot at unlocking the whole Hanna-Barbera Universe,” implying that the long-term plan is for the Scooby-Doo reboot to lead into a whole series of linked franchises based on the cartoons of William Hanna and Joseph Barbera.

In theory, a HB universe could work. But most of their shows have always been kind of dry and/or overrated. This probably won't work well.

Meh, this probably won't happen. Most of Warner's plans for theatrical takes of their animated properties fail to make it to screen.

I actually don't think that this is a bad idea, if these have some element of fun and can be a good mix of respect to the original series with a dutiful contemporary take. But lord knows that we don't need a gritty Jabberjaw reboot.

Don't know why this part was left out:


Quote
The think tank includes LEGO Movie’s Phil Lord and Chris Miller, Neighbors director Nicholas Stoller, Focus filmmakers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, and other talented male human beings. First up is September’s Storks, a movie about the storks who deliver babies, followed by LEGO Batman next year, and then Smallfoot, a film about a Yeti who thinks (twist!) that humans are real. And there are more LEGO movies – a direct sequel to 2014’s film, plus a Ninjago spin-off, which was described as a mash-up of kung fu films and kaiju movies, and which looked like a LEGO version of Pacific Rim, which is an awesome idea no matter what anyone says.



Yes, the guys behind 21/22 Jump Street, The Lego Movie, and Clone High are spearheading this project. Doesn't mean this will get past development hell, but WB have been way too lazy with their Hanna-Barbara library so I hope this goes through. Lord and Miller are just the right guys to adapt shows like Yogi Bear and The Flintstones for modern audiences.

RIP Janet Waldo

So last year, we lost the entirety of the original Flintstones cast. This year, we've lost The Jetsons. Someone should really check up on Frank Welker, or June!

Critics are going crazy over DC's new Flintstones comics. Check out some scanned panels here. This shit is surprisingly dark.

He's done lighter fare before. He directed quite a few DreamWorks movies.
