Sony obtained the rights to The Smurfs and are planning a live action/animated movie.  That’s one of those movies where actors who need money stand around pretending to interact with creepy CGI characters.  On the set, I imagine a naked PA painted green running around holding a stick with a picture of a smurf or a chipmunk or whatever on it, but I can neither confirm nor deny that that’s how they do it.

"Smurfs" marks SPA’s first hybrid film — a subgenre that proved popular given the success of 20th Century Fox’s "Alvin and the Chipmunks"…
"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. "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."

Well smurf me in the smurf, this sounds like a smurfing great idea.  I just hope these mothersmurfers don’t make another piece of smurf like Alvin and the Chipmunks. That smurf was creepy.  One of them ate smurf in the trailer!
