ALF is making a Hollywood comeback — this time on the big screen.
Sony Pictures Animation has landed the rights to the 1980s sitcom and plans to make a CG/live action hybrid feature film, like it did last year for The Smurfs, The Hollywood Reporter reports.
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. 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 on NBC from 1986 to 1990, revolved around ALF's adventures with the suburban Tanner family, who adopted him after he crash-landed on earth.
