So you thought you’d heard it all, didn’t you? Read that headline one more time slowly, cross it off the list, and prepare for whatever wild and wacky new one surfaces tomorrow. It’s just another day in the world of geek.
It’s being reported that Warner Brothers is teaming up with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) to make a movie. Considering that the WWE has their own film production company and has for quite a while now, this should come as no great surprise. But what may be a little surprising is what they’re actually making.
According to the reports, the two companies will be making a new animated Scooby-Doo movie, in which the big mystery will be set at the wrestling powerhouse’s biggest yearly event, Wrestlemania.
This means that fans of Scooby-Doo and wrestling will not only be getting a new animated Scooby-Doo movie set at Wrestlemania, but that they’ll also be getting the voices of many different wrestlers and wrestling figures who will be taking part in the movie.
The current list of names taking part includes Triple H, John Cena, Kane, Santino Marella, AJ, The Miz, Brodus Clay, Sin Cara, and of course the WWE chairman/CEO Vince McMahon.
I hope Kane plays Shaggy.
Don’t look for the movie to be heading to your local theater, however. This is just a fun little direct-to-DVD and Blu-ray, as well as digital download and video on demand services, flick with no current release date currently set.
What do you think of the pairing of WWE and Scooby-Doo?
