ADDAMS FAMILY Returns As Animated Film

Though popular culture mostly knows The Addams Family from a pair of darkly comic films from the '90s starring Anjelica Huston and Christina Ricci, the supernatural series has actually been in animated form just as often as it has been depicted by live-action actors.

If in France the majority of children has discovered The Addams Family on the occasion of the first film directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, in 1992, the United States, the joyous troop occupies the minds for nearly 50 years, from the time that Charles Addams has chose to put the scene in the short comic-strip.

The Addams Family debuted as a The New Yorker comic strip in the 1960s, and was popularized in a 1960s TV show an a 1990 movie franchise.

The Addams Family series is known for giving the ideal American family a morbid and satirical spin. The parents were named Gomez and Morticia, their children named Wednesday and Pugsley.

MGM has always been developing an Addams Family animated movie, but there hasn't been much (if any) movement on the project in recent years. Also in the household were Uncle Fester and Grandmama, plus their imposing butler Lurch.

The screenplay is being written by Pamela Pettler (Corpse Bride, Monster House) based on the original cartoons, with revisions by Matt Lieberman, who wrote the script for the upcoming animated Scooby-Doo film. Unfortunately, Burton pulled out and development on the 3D stop animation was stalled before being picked up, in a more traditional sense, by MGM in 2013. Produced by MGM, the project is expected to stick closer to the original spirit and it comes even to find a director because the studio has just announced that it was Conrad Vernon, the co-director of the excellent Sausage Party, which will take care of it. His latest film, Sausage Party, was a surprise R-rated hit that grossed more than $140 million worldwide.
