Everyone’s favorite alien life form is back! Sony Pictures Animation has signed a deal to develop a movie based on Alf, the hit 1980’s sitcom. The movie is expected to be a live action/CG hybrid similar to last summer’s breakout hit The Smurfs. No director or screenwriter has been assigned to the film, but producing duties will be shared by Paul Fusco, Alf co-creator Tom Patchett, and Jordan Kerner, who produced the aforementioned Smurfs movie. The release date has not yet been announced.
