The Smurfs set for sequel
The Smurfs are set for a second summer outing
on the big screen - movie studio bosses have given the greenlight
for a sequel to the hit family movie.
The little blue men proved their pulling
power when they opened in second place on the box office chart last
month (Jul11) with opening weekend takings of $35.4 million,
narrowly losing out on the top spot to Harrison Ford and Daniel
Craig's sci-fi blockbuster Cowboys + Aliens.
And film executives at Sony Pictures are so
impressed by The Smurfs' popularity, they are aiming to have a
second installment in movie theatres by August, 2013, reports trade
paper Daily Variety.
The Smurfs, a live action comedy, stars Neil
Patrick Harris, Hank Azaria and Sofia Vergara, and also featured
the voices of Alan Cumming and singer Katy Perry.
