Two weeks ago, we reported that Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation commenced production on The Smurfs 2, which is set for release July 31, 2013. Today, Columbia Pictures has hired writers Karey Kirkpatrick and Chris Poche (Over The Hedge) to begin working on the script for The Smurfs 3.
The Smurfs 2 is bringing back live-action cast members Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, Sofía Vergara, and Hank Azaria, with voice actors Katy Perry (Smurfette), Jonathan Winters (Papa Smurf), Alan Cumming (Gutsy), Fred Armisen (Brainy), George Lopez (Grouchy), Anton Yelchin (Clumsy), and John Oliver (Vanity Smurf) also returning. It is too early to tell if they will all reprise their roles for The Smurfs 3.
