Spinoffs seem to be all the rage right now. If you somehow have been wanting a new film based on one-third of the characters of Scooby-Doo, then we have some great news for you.

According to Variety, Jennifer and Ashley Tisdale’s Blondie Girl Productions is hard at work with Warner Bros.’ Television Group’s Blue Ribbon Content to create a spinoff for Daphne and Velma, the two women in the crime-solving Mystery Inc. gang. Set to star in the film are Shades of Blue star Sarah Jeffery and Last Man Standing star Sarah Gilman, who will be playing Daphne and Velma in the feature length live-action film.

Below is the official synopsis for the flick:

Daphne and Velma tells the story of Daphne Blake and Velma Dinkley before they team up with Scooby and the rest of the Mystery Inc. gang. 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.”

Daphne and Velma is currently in production in Atlanta, and is set to be released in 2018, though it’s not clear if it will be getting a theatrical release or an exclusive home or digital release.
