Zac Efron, Amanda Seyfried join Scooby-Doo film as Fred and Daphne


Zac Efron and Amanda Seyfried have been roped in to voice for Fred Jones and Daphne Blake respectively in the upcoming animated Scooby-Doo film, Scoob.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that Will Forte is set to voice Norville “Shaggy” Rogers while Gina Rodriguez would be voicing Velma Dinkley.
Plot details of the movie involve the Scooby-Doo characters teaming up to save the world from the evil Dick Dastardly. The mystery-solving teens and their talking Great Dane, Scooby-Doo first appeared 50 years ago on the animated TV series Scooby-Doo: Where Are You?
The show was created by Hanna-Barbera and aired first in 1969.
Tony Cervone will be directing the film. He has earlier directed films like Space Jam, Cartoon Network’s The Looney Tunes Show and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated.
The film has been written by Matt Lieberman and is slated to release on 15 May 2020.
The other two Scooby-Doo films, Scooby-Doo (2002) and Scooby-Doo: Monsters Unleashed (2004) went on to do good business, generating $275 million and $180 million worldwide. Both films used mixed live-action actors with Scooby himself, who was computer-generated.
Efron starred in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile and The Greatest Showman, and will next be seen opposite Matthew McConaughey in “The Beach Bum.”
Seyfried starred in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again and will next appear in The Art of Racing in the Rain and You Should Have Left.
