One of the first interviews I did today was with up-and-comer Robbie Amell, who plays â€˜Fredâ€™ in Warner Premiereâ€™s upcoming third live-action “Scooby Doo” film, â€˜â€™Scooby Doo ! The Mystery Begins”.
A direct-to-video release that serves as a prequel to the Freddie Prinze Jr- Sarah Michelle Gellar starring â€œScoobyâ€ films, the pic fixes on how the Mystery Inc. gang â€“ Fred, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy, and of course, Scooby – came to be a unit.
According to Amell, it likely wonâ€™t be the first and last time you see him playing detective Fred.
â€œThereâ€™s a second scriptâ€, that would serve as a sequel, says Amell. â€œIn the first film, we save our first mystery â€“ but by the end of the mystery weâ€™ve destroyed a lot of stuff. The next one would be set at a Lake Resort â€“ a Summer Camp kind-of setting â€“ where weâ€™re forced to work to pay off the damage we made in the first film.
â€œKind of a classic Scooby Doo [villain] is â€˜The Lake Monsterâ€™, so I donâ€™t know, maybe weâ€™ll be seeing him in the next one?â€, wonders the actor. â€œI donâ€™t know, but thatâ€™s just my guessâ€.
â€œBut yes, thereâ€™s definitely talk of a sequelâ€.
In â€˜â€™Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Beginsâ€™â€™, Coolsville High is plagued by a suspicious haunting, and everyone is accusing Fred, Velma, Daphne and Shaggy of playing a spooky prank. Suddenly, the school athlete, the science fair-winning brainiac, the drama beauty and the school misfit must band together to clear their names. With Shaggy’s newly adopted dog Scooby-Doo tagging along, the mismatched quartet soon discovers they have more in common than they originally thought.
The live-action cast features Amell (â€˜â€™Life With Derekâ€™â€™, â€˜â€™True Jacksonâ€™â€™) as Fred, along with Kate Melton as Daphne, Hayley Kiyoko as Velma and Nick Palatas as Shaggy. Frank Welker, a member of the original â€˜â€™Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!â€™â€™ voice-cast, provides the voice of Scooby-Doo.
