ALF to come back this time in film format
ISTANBUL - Anatolia News Agency
ALF’s adventures will come back to the silver screen with a new collaboration.People that grew up in the 1980s no doubt remember a comedy series called ALF. Now the series will make a comeback in movie form, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Sony Pictures Animation has landed the rights to the ‘80s sitcom that featured ALF’s adventures with the suburban Tanner family, who adopted him after he crash-landed on earth. The movie will be a live action hybrid feature film, like last year’s “The Smurfs,” The Hollywood Reporter wrote.
Neither a director nor a writer has been announced for the project, but puppeteer Paul Fusco is set to return as the voice of the titular creature, whose initials stand for Alien Life Form. It is not yet known if any of the actors from the TV series will make cameos or play roles.
Fusco will collaborate with ALF creator Tom Patchett and Jordan Kerner, who produced a similar movie adaptation for “The Smurfs” last year. ALF, which ran from 1986 to 1990, revolved around the Tanner family learning to deal with ALF’s oddities while ALF learned to live with a bunch of humans and not to eat the cat.
