“The Addams Family” is coming back. Since their debut in their debut as a comic panel in The New Yorker in 1938, the characters have been re-imagined in several ways. From the panels, to live action TV, to live action films, to a Broadway musical, and now as an animated film for MGM.
MGM is inches away from inking a deal with BermanBraun to produce the newest incarnation, according to Variety. Pamela Pettler (Corpse Bride, Monster House) has been tasked with bringing the macabre family back to life for this all-new feature, based on the characters created by the late Charles Addams.
You may recall that Tim Burton was working ona stop-motion “Addams Family” movie but Chris Meledandri of Illumination- which had been developing the film- revealed earlier this year that they had scrapped that project.
This begs the question: Will MC Hammer soon get the call to provide another classic song for the Addams clan? More as it develops.
