Smurfs casting call reveals some pretty Smurfable plot details

5 years agoby:

Hoping to capitalize on the skyrocketing popularity of blue people around the world thanks to AVATAR, THE SMURFS movie is moving ahead full force, and this new casting call from Spoiler TV is the first bit of info to give us any sort of indication about what the plot of the movie will be like.

[GRACE] 26 - 35 years old.. a first-time expectant mother, she's faced with juggling both an overworked husband and, ultimately, a household full of Smurfs. Should be lovely, maternal and have good comedic energy.sptv050769.. MAJOR SUPPORTING ROLE

[ODILE] Late 20's to mid-40's... Foreign: European (French, Spanish, Italian), British, Latin American, French Canadian, etc. A beautiful, charming (when she wants to be), high-powered executive. She runs a high-end French cosmetics company. Strong comedic ability essential. MAJOR SUPPORTING ROLE.

This confirms that the Smurfs will be interacting with real people, as opposed to being confined to Smurf Village. And they’ll be bothering a pregnant housewife and having something to do with a French cosmetics executive. I’m picturing Malin Akerman and Olivia Williams after reading those descriptions. 

I’m not sure how I feel about bringing Smurfs to real life, as ALVIN IN THE CHIPMUNKS currently stands as one of the most annoying kids movies ever made. I think a lush CGI Smurf world would suit them better, but hey, what do I know? French cosmetics it is.

Extra Tidbit: I know my niece is going to make me watch this at least ten times, so I'd really like it to at least be tolerable.

Honestly, why the hell does Hollywood screw things up so much? I did have a glimmer of hope that this might actually be an OK cartoon-movie update. I was a fool.

HORRIBLE!!! What happened to the Smurf full cg feature, that was in production 2-3 years ago?! There was even a photo on the web of an animator sitting at his computer screen where you could see smurfs and a smurf house!

My guess is that the Smurfs will be the secret ingredient in their new perfume line...much like Gargamel and his gold schemes.

According to the Wikipedia entry "His main goal in life is to destroy the Smurfs and/or capture enough of them to create a potion to turn base matter into gold."

smurf off!

Bad idea to modernize it. I was looking forward to see the smurfs in their medieval fairytale setting, with swamp ogres and evil wizards. The design of this film makes them look like they're built out of clay, which is cool. But this sounds like it's probably burdened with another limp commercial plot.

if i were you, i'd tell your niece that you are allergic to smurfs and therefore can't see the movie with her.
