ALF is getting his own movie

The makers of the hyperactive, self-aware Smurfs movie, are turning their lens to yet another 1980s pop culture staple, ALF. Yes, the hairy survivor of planet Melmac (and cat-eater) is getting his own movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony just purchased the rights to the sitcom. Their plan is to get The Smurfs producer Walden Jordan Kerner to help translate this television show into a two-hour, half-CG, half-live-action movie. We're not sure how we feel about a CG ALF, but at least Paul Fusco is returning to voice the wiseacre alien.
