ALF (In Development)

  • ALF

The 1980s TV sitcom ALF will get the big screen treatment via the producer of the Smurfs movie.

The Hollywood Reporter claims that Jordan Kerner has teamed with the series' creator Tom Patchett and puppeteer Paul Fusco to produce a hybrid live-action/CG-animated feature film for Sony Pictures Animation.

Fusco, who voiced the wisecracking visitor from the planet Melmac on the TV series, will reprise the role for the movie (has fans around the world breathe a simultaneous sigh of relief).

The sci-fi sitcom, which ran on NBC from 1986-90, followed an alien life form (ALF) named Gordon Shumway who crash-lands on Earth and ends up living with the American suburbanite Tanner family. ALF later beget an animated TV series, a TV movie, a Marvel comic, and a talk show series on TV Land.

No writer or director is said to be attached to the movie yet.
