Smurfs movie coming soon

Remember the group of small sky blue creatures from the popular 80s cartoon, The Smurfs? Soon, we will get to watch them on the big screen! That's right. They are making a Smurfs movie. And that's not all. It will be a trilogy! From Moviehole:
“It’s a 3-D/CG Smurfs”, said Kerner. “You just can’t make those guys live – it’d be a little weird, but a 3D Shrek world of them - that’s fantastic....”

The “Smurfs” trilogy will be “the animated Lord of the Rings – through the world of these idiots. Because they’re sweet characters but they’re goofs. It’s a comic version, but still very heartfelt, version of Lord of the Rings – though not literally Lord of the Rings, but an epic story like that.”

The fan favourite to voice the character of Gargamel seems to be John Lithgow. “Very interesting”, smiles Kerner. “I love John Lithgow”.

Gargamel’s back-story is going to be fully examined in the film trilogy. We’ll learn “[more] about Gargamel and Smurf Soup and how all that began and what really goes on in that castle. What his backstory really was. There’s an all-powerful wizard… there’s all sorts of things that get revealed as we go along”.
Interesting. John Lithgow as the voice of Gargamel. I like that. What's more interesting is who will voice the other popular characters like Papa Smurf and the lovely Smurfette? Hmmmmm...

cant imagine if they use live actors as smurfs... haha.. that would be so weird... seeing a person painted all blue and wearing the big hats.... so its good they using cgi.

How about Sir Ian McKellen as Papa Smurf ?

They should use a real actor to portray Gargamel.

John Lithgow looks like the part too.
