And they would’ve gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for… Dax Shepard?

Shepard is in negotiations to co-direct an animated Scooby-Doo movie for Warner Bros, EW has learned. Shepard and animation veteran Tony Cervone will helm the project from a screenplay written by Shepard and Matt Lieberman.


Best known for his roles on shows like Parenthood and Robot Chicken, Shepard recently teamed up with Warner Bros. on the upcoming comedy CHiPs, which Shepard wrote, directed, and stars in.

The new Scooby-Doo will drive the Mystery Machine into theaters on Sept. 21, 2018.
