Smurfs live-action film gets release date
According to Cinema Blend, a Smurfs live-action film is in the works, with a planned release date of Dec. 17, 2010.
It’s coming from Sony, and Cinema Blend assumes it’ll be something in the “Alvin and the Chipmunks” vein, a live-action Gargamel with GGI Smurfs running about.
I haven’t personally thought much about the Smurfs since the 1980s, though I did once own the first three issues of the comic book. Smurfs was largely something I watched because it was on, rather than something I sought out. Is there enough Smurf nostalgia to fuel a successful remake? I didn’t think 20th Century Fox’s “Alvin and the Chipmunks” would work, but my kids loved it, and it was a financial success.
“The Smurfs are one of the best-known franchises, and among the most beloved collection of characters in the world,” Columbia co-president Doug Belgrad said in a release at smurf.com. “We’re very excited to introduce a new generation to Papa Smurf, Smurfette and the other smurftastic Smurfs in all of their ‘three-apple-tall’ glory.”
