Sony Animation to Develop ALF Feature Film


Gordon Shumway, the sardonic alien life form better known by the acronym ALF, is headed to the big screen. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Sony Animation has nabbed the rights to the character, who celebrated his 25th anniversary last year.

The original voice of ALF, Paul Fusco, is expected to return for a big screen take on the fuzzy extraterrestrial that will merge live action with CGI.

Jordan Kerner, who previously adapted The Smurfs for the studio in a similar fashion, will produce alongside Fusco and series creator Tom Patchett.

Ben Haber and Kenneth Kaufman will executive produce.
