The idea is so crazy…it just might fail miserably! Apparently ALF creator and modern day Don Quixote Paul Fusco told The Hollywood Reporter this week that he is “pitching” an ALF movie to “a major studio.” Says Fusco:
“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,” he says. “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.”
The only flaw in this plan? There already is an ALF movie! It’s called Project: ALF and it stars Martin Sheen as an alien-hating colonel and ALF accidentally goes to a strip club! Doh! Sorry, Michael Bay! This ALF movie comes pre-ruined!
