(RNN) - Hide your food, hide your cats.

The "alien life-form" who crashed into the Tanners' garage and then into the hearts of America is coming to a theater near you.

In a wave of 80s nostalgia, The Hollywood Reporter says Sony Pictures is planning a live action/CGI movie of the TV Show ALF, much like 2011's remake of The Smurfs.

This time around, Gordon "ALF" Shumway will be an animation, not a puppet. But he will retain his signature wisecracking voice. Puppeteer Paul Fusco, the voice behind the original ALF, has signed onto the project.

If hardcore fans are nervous, The Hollywood Reporter says Tom Patchett, the show's original creator is on board, teaming with Jordan Kerner, who produced The Smurfs.

ALF ran from 1986-1990 and also spawned off a Saturday morning cartoon as well as a full length movie, Project: ALF.

No word on if girlfriend Rhonda or Lucky the Cat will appear.

    14 years as part of the Ole Miss football program as a coach or player has prepared Matt Luke for this opportunity. Admittedly it doesn't come under the circumstances he might've envisioned. But with a Rebel bloodline that runs 3 generations deep, the position fulfills a lifelong dream. "I can truly tell y'all today that this is my dream job," Luke said Monday at his first press conference as Ole Miss interim head coach. "It's a job that I've been preparing my whole li...

    The Pascagoula Panthers open the 2017 football season on the road. In fact, their first three games are road contests. That scheduling quirk may give field turf crews just enough time to get War Memorial Stadium ready for the September 8 home opener. The wet weather in South Mississippi is placing quite the burden on construction workers as they attempt to complete stadium renovations. The project was suppose to be finished before the beginning of Pascagoula's football season.
