Quentin Tarantino won't be joining Katy Perry and Alan Cumming in the new SMURFS movie - talks between the filmmaker and producers have broken down.
The Pulp Fiction director was among the favourites to land the role of Brainy Smurf in the upcoming animated movie.
Sony Pictures Animation president Hannah Minghella says, "There were conversations about it, but it didn't work out."
Perry will play Smurfette, George Lopez Grouchy Smurf, Kevin James Hefty Smurf and Cumming Gutsy Smurf in the new movie.
Hank Azaria will voice the villainous Gargamel, according to the Los Angeles Times.
