Remember ALF, the 80s sitcom starring a wisecracking alien? Sony's making a feature film out of it...

Back in the 80s, when only people like Matthew Broderick were cool enough to have an internet connection, ALF was on television. If you're old enough, you may remember it well; ALF (stands for Alien Life Form) was a fast-talking extraterrestrial brought to life by puppeteer Paul Fusco. Crashlanding on Earth, ALF befriends the Tanner family while avoiding government forces. 

Now, Sony's looking to revive the series as a movie, and has secured the rights to make a CG/live-action hybrid family feature with Fusco returning to voice the smart-mouthed alien. The series ran for over a hundred episodes between 1986 and 1990, so while there's no writer or director attached as yet, there's at least plenty of material to take inspiration from.
