Remember “ALF”? That show’s creator Paul Fusco is readying a pitch for a film adaptation of the late 80’s sitcom about a furry, wisecracking Melmac alien and his life with a regular family says IFPress.
Fusco says “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.”
What changes would he make to update the property? “ALF could be more outspoken now than ever, because the world is a whole different place than the ’80s. 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.”
