An ALF movie in the works???
Paul Fusco, the creator and puppeteer of ALF, has recently revealed his intentions to bring the cat eating alien to the big silver screen.
“I think the timing is right. That’s a big important thing, timing. There have been movies out there of characters that I didn’t think were on the same parallel as ALF that got movies made, so I think it’s time. I think it could be a home run on a lot of levels.”
He also adds that the character would perfect to make a comeback in these modern times,
“ALF could be more outspoken now than ever, because the world is a whole different place than the ’80s. And I think the character still stands up and certainly has more to say now than ever. I think we would approach it in a fresh way. I don’t think we would duplicate the TV show, but I think we would maybe put it in a storyline where we would explain how ALF got here and put him with a new family and let the character speak for himself.”
We’ve had 21 Jump Street, The Muppets, The Smurfs and countless other classics making comebacks to the big screen, so why not everyone’s favourite cuddly cat eating alien?
I don’t care what anyone says, this is definately one movie I’d love to see made. I’ve still got my ALF soft toy from when I was a kid. Oh the nostalgia!
Would you watch it?
