Holy Smurf! Sony Planning a Third 'Smurfs' Movie for 2015

Talk about getting ahead of yourselves. While the notion of scripting multiple sequels isn't that novel, Sony is banking on the overwhelming success of the first Smurfs movie to jump ahead of next summer's sequel and pen a third film.

The Smurfs sequel recently made news when Christina Ricci, Brendan Gleeson and J.B. Smoove agreed to cash a lucrative paycheck. The Smurfs 2 arrives in theaters July 31, 2103.

Variety reports that Karey Kirkpatrick and Chris Poche (they penned and directed the animated comedy Over the Hedge) are on board to write and direct The Smurfs 3.

The first Smurfs movie grossed a surprising $563 million worldwide. It's clear that Sony isn't ready to put that cash cow out to pasture just yet. The third Smurfs film should arrive in theaters sometime in 2015. Hopefully by then the franchise will have evolved into something more engaging and humorous than the first film.

Are you excited to hear two more Smurfs films are hitting theaters?
