A stop-motion animated The Addams Family feature film is currently in the early stages of development with director Tim Burton a likely contender to helm the project, according to producer Christopher Meledandri.
“It’s all very, very early, but we are developing with [Tim Burton directing] in mind,” Meledandri told Coming Soon. “We’re just now at the story phase. Stuff has been written as though we are doing it in black and white, but that’s not correct. It’s not incorrect, but it’s not correct. We haven’t gotten to that point.”
According to Coming Soon, Meledandri revealed that the Addams Family feature will be based on “the original Charles Addams comics that ran in The New Yorker and not the subsequent television series or the film adaptations.”
Seems like a no-brainer that Burton would direct a project like this. How long before the announcement that Johnny Depp is voicing Gomez and Helena Bonham Carter is voicing Morticia?
