Columbia Pictures Announces Movie Deal With…The Smurfs?

Posted by thelanetrain on June 11, 2008

According to Reuters, Columbia Pictures has signed an exclusive deal to help make a big screen version of The Smurfs.  In case you were born after 1990, The Smurfs was that great cartoon series from the 80’s (derived from a long running Belgian comic strip from the 50’s and 60’s) that featured little blue creatures with flat personalities and names to match (i.e. Hefty Smurf who was fat, Lazy Smurf who was sleepy, Brainy Smurf who was smart, etc…).  So why is this even newsworthy?  According to the article and Sony, the new movie will feature CGI Smurfs that will interact with human actors, working form the same formula as last year’s Alvin and The Chipmunks.  Well that sounds great, because that movie got such great reviews.  I can hardly wait until all of my childhood memories are ruined.

    Yeah, I blogged about that, too. The Alvin and the Chipmunks movie was awful, but at least they left out The Chipettes.

    The Chipmunk Adventure was my favorite movie for 10 years, and stays among my favorites. Didn’t see the remake, bc there’s no way that you could make a better movie than the original animated Adventure
