“Hello. My Name Is Papa Smurf. You Killed My Franchise. Prepare to Die.”


First, the terrible news: there’s going to be a Smurfs movie reboot, and Mandy Patinkin will inherit the role of Papa Smurf from the late Jonathan Winters.

Here’s the less terrible news: Raja Gosnell is not going to be directing, the movie will be completely animated this time, and is purported to be closer to the original Peyo comics. I hesitate to say we could actually get a good Smurfs movie…but we might get one without Guitar Hero references, or Neil Patrick Harris managing the unlikely feat of making us all hate him.
