Sony and Smurfs Producer Plans Hybrid ALF Movie

Sony Pictures Animation has recently acquired the rights to the classic 80s sci-fi comedy show ALF, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio is planning to bring the show back as a CG-animation/live action feature film akin to The Smurf.

The original ALF (the nickname given to the protagonist alien, also means Alien Life Form), follows the daily lives of a typical suburban family and a not-so-typical wisecracking alien that came to live with them.

Smurfs producer Jordan Kerner will be producing the movie along with the show’s original creators Tom Patchett and puppeteer Paul Fusco. Fusco also provided the voice for the character in the original show, and it is expected that he will be reprising his role for the feature film.

Ben Haber of Kerner Entertainment Co. and Kenneth Kaufman will serve as executive producers. The studio has not yet hired a writer and director for the movie, and a release date is pending.
