July 19, 2005 - The Smurfs are headed to the big screen courtesy of Paramount Pictures – that's according to today's edition of industry insider mag Variety.
The studio has reportedly acquired the film rights to the classic toon characters and plans to develop a 3-D computer-animated film through Nickelodeon Movies. Jordan Kerner will produce and Paramount has hired Herb Ratner (Mr. Lucky) to pen the screenplay.
Assuming the film is successful, Paramount will release two more Smurfs flicks. The first is tentatively slated to drop in 2008 – that'll coincide with the 50th anniversary of the characters.
The Smurfs were created by Peyo Culliford in 1958, but didn't become an international sensation until the animated series appeared on NBC in 1981.
