Warner are apparently attempting to bring a theatrical Scooby-Doo animated feature involving Atlas Entertainment (from the live-action TV films) and Charles Roven and Richard Suckle who worked on the first live-action theactrical film (and possibly the sequel). With people from both sides it's unknown really what they're continuing from. Is it a merging of both live-action continuites, a continuition of just one of them, a continuition of regular animated continuity or a completely new one? The movie also involves Matt Lieberman who's been hired to write it and Jesse Ehrman and Andrew Fischel who are overseeing the project.
The last film, Monsters Unleashed, was the last big screen outing and a planned sequel was dropped when that film didn't do as goo as they had hoped. Although I can imagine it would be another tired "let's prove ourselves again" storyline. The gang can always be challenged, but by the second film it just felt redudant already. Probably because of the way it was written. I didn't mind it completely I just think it could've been done better. It would go from "entertain the kids" to "entertain the adults". It should just be a straight forward set-up. Almost like the TV films, but even closer just without the cardboard imitations of the Ben 10 live-action films. The fact that it's animated means that they should go with the voice cast they already have.
This wouldn't be the first animated Scooby-Doo film to be on the big screen. Scooby-Doo! in Where's My Mummy? was given a limited release by Kidtoon, which given its highly complex storyline (at least for Scooby-Doo which I don't think was ever complex as this before) was a good choice.
