Well, this one has come a tad out of left field. And as we’re longtime fans of Scoobert here at Moonbase Alpha, this is certainly news that has our attention. Yes, as the title suggests, a live-action Daphne and Velma movie is happening.

As per Variety, the film – seemingly titled simply Daphne and Velma – has Shades of Blue’s Sarah Jeffery and Last Man Standing’s Sarah Gilman signed on as Daphne and Velma, respectively. In addition to this, the picture is actually already shooting ahead of a 2018 release. Jennifer and Ashley Tisdale’s Blondie Girl Productions and Warner Brothers are behind the feature, with Olive and Mocha: First Kiss‘ Suzi Yoonessi directing from a script by Kyle Mack and Caitlin Meares.

The early word on Daphne and Velma reads:

The mystery-solving teens are best friends but have only met online – until Daphne transfers to Velma’s school, Ridge Valley High, stocked with high-tech gadgetry by the school’s benefactor, tech billionaire Tobias Bloom. While their peers vie for a coveted internship at Bloom’s company, Daphne and Velma try to uncover the reason why the school’s brightest students are disappearing – only to emerge again in a zombie-fied state.

Yep, that means it’s a zombie-driven movie that’s centred on Daphne and Velma before their time as part of the famed Mystery Inc. gang.

As ever, expect more on Daphne and Velma as we get it.
