'Scooby-Doo 3' Gets The Green Light

With a sequel to Warner Bros. Pictures' "Scooby-Doo" on the fast track, the studio is already moving forward on a third installment, according Hollywood Reporter.

Hiring scribes Dan Forman and Paul Foley to write a script, tentatively titled "Scooby-Doo 3." The duo recently turned in a rewrite on Warners' "The Jetsons," another animated television property being conceived for the big screen.

Sources say the studio was happy with the "Jetsons" draft and was therefore prompted to hire Forman and Foley to pen "Scooby 3." The first "Scooby-Doo" film, directed by Raja Gosnell and released June 16 in the United States, was expected to launch a franchise if it performed at the boxoffice, which it did, opening at $54.1 million and going on to gross more than $153 million domestically.
