A storyline in Hollywood is rarely over until the money stops coming in, even when that story features the 3-D renderings of '80s cartoon faves, "The Smurfs."
According to Deadline, Sony is planning a sequel to their summer "Smurfs" release and is lining it up to open on August 2, 2013.
If you're scratching your head with wonder, it sounds like execs didn't have to think twice about the move: "The Smurfs" has taken in $135 million globally thus far, and held its own against "Cowboys & Aliens" when it opened in late July.
We do know at least one mom who liked "The Smurfs," judging from her weekend review - would you be interested in seeing a sequel?
