According to The Hollywood Reporter, Smurf's producer Jordan Kerner is planning a hybrid live-action/CGI feature length film based on the 1980's sitcom ALF. Puppeteer Paul Fusco, who voiced the extraterrestrial in the TV series, will return for the film from Sony Pictures Animation. No writer or director has been named.
ALF, which is short for 'alien life form', followed the "friendly furry alien creature who crash landed on Earth and took up with the Tanners, a suburban family. ALF, whose name was later revealed as Gordon Shumway, is sarcastic and has an appetite for cats. He courts trouble with government forces that are on his tail." The show aired from 1986-1990.
Along with the recent Smurf's movie, Kerner's film credits include The Mighty Ducks, Inspector Gadget and Charlotte’s Web. Last year's The Smurfs grossed more than $563 million worldwide. Joining Kerner as producer on the upcoming film will be the show's creators Fusco and '70's TV vet Tom Patchett.
