Neil Patrick Harris Joins The Smurfs

Some films just sound terrible from the offset, a live-action/CGI hybrid of The Smurfs would fall firmly into that category. The film will be helmed by Raja Gosnell who brought us the similar in concept Scooby Doo movies and will apparently see the little blue creatures 'deal with each other and humans, particularly an evil wizard obsessed with capturing them for his own sinister purposes'. If ever there was to be a piece of news to instill some faith into the production though, this is it. The first major piece of casting has been announced and it's...wait for it...Neil Patrick Harris.
