The Scooby-Doo franchise was rebooted as a live-action movie starring Linda Cardellini and Freddie Prinze Jr in 2002's "Scooby-Doo" and the 2004 sequel, "Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed," and just a decade later Warner Bros is contemplating another reboot.

Deadline Hollywood reported this week that thus far the project will include original producer Charles Roven and Randall Green as the scriptwriter.

The Independent (UK) noted that the news comes just days after the death of Casey Kasem, who voiced Shaggy in the original cartoon.

Both live-action Scooby-Doo movies were given failing grades from critics, but the first raked in $275 million worldwide and the follow-up earned $180 million.

Franchises that produce multiple sequels and reboot easily are often favored for development by studio executives because they are often viewed as safer bets in a movie market that can seem fickle at times. For this reason, super-hero movies like Batman, Spiderman, and X-Men have dominated theaters over the last decade.

"Scooby Doo: Where Are You?" the original CBS cartoon, ran from 1969 to 1975. The cartoon itself has been rebooted a few times, the latest being the announced "Be Cool, Scooby Doo!" on Cartoon Network, according to Forbes.
