‘The Addams Family’ Animated Revival Has a Director!

Conrad Vernon, who co-directed the terribly unfunny Sausage Party, is on board to direct MGM’s animated The Addams Family movie, Variety reports.

The Addams family began their macabre life as single-panel gag illustrations by cartoonist Charles Addams that appeared primarily in the New Yorker. Their popularity led to the Addams Family becoming a television show in the 1960s that starred John Astin and Carolyn Jones as well as an animated series in the early 1970s. The family enjoyed a revival in the early 1990s with a pair of movies that starred Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia, and Christina Ricci.

The premise revolved around Gomez and Morticia Addams and their children named Wednesday and Pugsley. Also in the household were Uncle Fester and Grandmama, plus their imposing butler Lurch, the disembodied hand Thing, and Cousin Itt.

Vernon will also produce the movie with Gail Berman and Alex Schwartz, principals of production house the Jackal Group.

Pamela Pettler wrote the screenplay based on the cartoons with a polish by Matt Lieberman.

        You will be surprise.

        Just watch this scene

        Genndy already worked with horror before and also comedy, i mean the guy created Dexter’s Lab for crying out loud and he usually doesn’t stick with the same style, he always go tries to work on something new and i won’t doubt he would do the same with the Adams Family and not make it a copy to Hotel, it will have it’s style and humor.

          I grew up in the 90s, I know of his work. I just don’t agree

    *Excited headline* “So, turns out it’s being directed by that Sausage Party douche.”

    Oh no! I was hoping for Monster house director Gil Kenan or a stop motion version by either Henry Selick or Tim Burton. Do we know if this is CGI? It probably is with this director… Why not a netflix tv revival instead? Seems like the perfect time for something like this! The one hope I have for this is that Addams Family was not a children comic, but was rather for everyone. With this director we might end uo with a movie aimed at an older audience. Cross fingers.

    IS THE DIRECTOR A DEGENERATE PEDOPHILE? THAT WAS A TRICK QUESTION WE ALL KNOW THAT ALL DIRECTORS ARE DEGENERATE PEDOPHILES.
