Vergara loves her Smurfs

The curvaceous Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara is the latest to get in on the live action sector of the hybrid feature The Smurfs. Vergara will portray Odile, a powerful executive at a high-end French cosmetics company who is married to the live-action character played by Neil Patrick Harris (THR). The live action and animation feature is being directed by Raja Gosnell, who’s previous credits include Beverly Hills Chihuahua and Yours, Mine and Ours.

The story, penned by scribes David N. Weiss and J. David Stem, is about a mythical race of little blue creatures that must deal with each other and humans, particularly an evil sorcerer obsessed with capturing them for his own sinister purposes. Already lending their voice to the feature is Katy Perry, Jonathan Winters, George Lopez, Alan Cumming, Kevin James with Neil Patrick Harris and Hank Azaria making up some of the live action cast.

The Sony Pictures Animation and Columbia Pictures feature comes out in theaters on July 29th, 2011.

I’ve been in love with film ever since I was a kid. The time, effort and passion that runs through a majority most film is something that’s always attracted me to this field. What ended up happening with my big appetite for all things going on in the industry turned from random blurbs on Facebook to an unexpected but fun job. College student by day, movie news writer by early morning…or any time in the day and night when more news arrives. Working towards my bachelor’s degree in film, what a surprise. I do other things too, like draw, write stories, maintain a social life and feed my pet dragon Lockheed. If you want to know more about me, hunt me down and just ask.
