Over a year after the production's initial announcement, Columbia Pictures is finally making ground by hiring Raja Gosnell to direct Smurfs, a film that will mix live-action and animation.

Smurfs Director Found

Gosnell has some skill mixing CG and live-action, as it was he who you could find behind the camera for Beverly Hills Chihuahua. To make the job a bit trickier, Smurfs will be directed in both 3D and 2D on December 17, 2010.

Best known in the U.S. for the long-running Hanna-Barbera cartoon, the Smurfs were created in 1958 by Belgian cartoonist Pierre Culliford, known throughout the world as Peyo. The characters spawned a toy line, various games and a hit TV series that run between 1981 and 1990.

Though it remains debatable, I still believe the cartoon was made to push Communism. Don't believe? Look it up.
