â€œHold on, Man. We don’t go anywhere with ‘scary’, ‘spooky’, ‘haunted’, or ‘forbidden’ in the titleâ€œ
A while back we exclusively reported on a new â€œScooby Dooâ€ prequel movie that Warner Premiere (“Lost Boys : The Tribe”, “Dukes of Hazzard : The Beginning”) are doing. Set in highschool, the film tells the back-story of how Fred, Daphne, Shaggy, Velma and, of course, Scooby, hooked up.
We were informed this evening that newcomer Nick Palatas has scored the role of the new Shaggy in the movie.
â€œHe is terrific. He does a great Shaggyâ€, says our source. â€œMatthew Lillard was good, Nick will be great!â€
Itâ€™s a big break for Palatas, whoâ€™ll make his film debut in â€œScooby Doo 3â€.
Palatas, who has â€œalso signed on for two further filmsâ€ joins the previously announced Kate Melton (â€œFriday Night Lightsâ€) who plays Daphne.
Brian Levant (â€œThe Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegasâ€) directs the â€œScooby Dooâ€ prequel. Shooting begins in August.
