Sarah Jeffery (Wayward Pines) and Sarah Gilman (Last Man Standing) have signed on to play the leads in the upcoming live-action film Daphne and Velma which tells the story of Daphne Blake and Velma Dinkley before they joined Mystery Inc. Jinkies!!
In the film, “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 has already begun filming and is set for a 2018 release. The film is being produced by Warner Bros. Television’s Blue Ribbon Content and Ashle Tinsdale’s Blondie Girl Productions.
