‘The Smurfs 3’ in Development

The Smurfs 3 already in development at SonyTwo 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.

Jordan Kerner, who produced The Smurfs and The Smurfs 2, is on board for the new sequel. It isn't known yet if Raja Gosnell will return to direct the third installment.

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.

The Smurfs 2 was released July 31st, 2013.

    WE WANT HEFTY SMURF ON SMURFS 3! It's about time to have a full length Smurfs film with the best Smurf ever - Hefty Smurf - to kick Gargamel's butt and save Smurfette. Hefty is the strongest and the bravest one, it'd be the best Smurfs movie.

                I bet George wouldn't let him near his own franchise.

                  So when Avatar 2 comes out, there will be mention of a fifth sequel.

                  At least it's his version of Star Wars and I find it entertaining.

                    I just read on IGN that Paddington Bear and Clifford The Big Red Dog are getting film adaptations. My excitement for the Smurfs has been surpassed.

                      @superman81 Avatar was a visual masterpiece, ya the story was a knockoff to Pocahontas but it was delivered flawlessly, i was sooooo surprised of its US totals....a very quiet $700 million....like Avengers made an explosion at $200 million and might reach $500 if its lucky ($257 million as of Wed.)

                        it kills me when studios plan 2 -3 movies ahead and dont even wait to see what they sequel will do. Like Cameron is already talking about Avatar 3 and 4 before 2 comes out. how does he know that Avatar 2 will be anywhere close to the first? most people didnt even like the first one at all. if you want great 3D but a weak ass story and sub par acting then go see Avatar
