A few months ago we posted a piece about the hopes for/possibility of an ALF movie. For those who don't recall, ALF, which stands for Alien Life Form, chronicles the adventures of irrtascible, huggable, cat-hungry alien Gordon Shumway - who lands hooks up with an Earth family.
Per THIS piece at THR, it's sounding like said movie is closer to happening...
Sony Pictures Animation has closed a deal to acquire rights to the classic 1980s sitcom ALF and will develop the property into a hybrid CG/live action feature.
No writer or director is attached.
(Paul) Fusco voiced the title character on the show and is expected reprise his role for the movie.
I'm not sure what tine the film will take - given the climate of soft-shoeing and political correctness which seems to prevail in much modern cinema, I fear an ALF movie may end up being watered down. But there was a certain, subtle edge to the original NBC television series which ran from 186-1990. If even a hint of that can be ported to the big screen? This could be a lot of fun...
