Addams Family attempt to be Animated … Again
The ball is rolling again for the long-awaited animated adaptation of my favourite ghoulish eccentrics, The Addams Family. Tim Burton was previously down as the director to give them a stop-motion treatment (with Johnny as Gomez, no doubt), but it was scrapped. Now MGM are looking to produce the reboot with writer Pamela Pettler, best known for stop-motion movies Corpse Bride and 9.
If this was say, 5 years ago, I would have been upset Burton was not involved. But after Alice, it’s refreshing to see someone else will be writing, and Pamela clearly knows her kooky humour and gothic motifs.
