Live action Velma and Daphne movie coming
The ladies of Mystery Inc. are taking over.
A “Scooby-Doo” spinoff about Daphne and Velma is in production at Warner Bros., according to Variety.
The live-action movie, simply called “Daphne and Velma,” will star Sarah Jeffrey (“Shades of Blue”) and Sarah Gilman (“Last Man Standing”).
“Before their eventual team-up with Scooby and the gang, bright and optimistic Daphne and whip-smart and analytical Velma are both mystery-solving teens who are best friends but have only met online — until now. Daphne has just transferred to Velma’s school, Ridge Valley High, a tech-savvy institute with all the latest gadgets provided by the school’s benefactor, tech billionaire Tobias Bloom,” the logline reads.
“And while competition is fierce among the students for a coveted internship at Bloom Innovative, Daphne and Velma dig beyond all the gadgets and tech to investigate what is causing some of the brightest students in school to disappear — only to emerge again in a zombie-fied state.”
“Daphne and Velma” will be produced by Blondie Girl Productions, founded by Ashley and Jennifer Tisdale.
“Blondie Girl is committed to telling stories from a female perspective and we could not be more thrilled to give Daphne and Velma their own story,” the sisters said in a joint statement.
“It’s so exciting to partner with Warner Home Entertainment and Blue Ribbon Content to introduce a new generation to the smart, charismatic, fearless females that we all know and love.”
The movie is currently shooting in Atlanta and expected to be released next year.
