Producer Talks Black and White, Stop Motion ‘Addams Family’

While Tim Burton works out what project he wants to do next, Producer Christopher Meledandri spoke a bit to Comingsoon about the 3-D animated version of Addams Family. In the interview he reveals that they plan on shooting the film with stop motion and not computer animation. He also added that the project 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 thereof. It’s also worth noting that they’re considering releasing the film in black and white, which is pretty awesome if you ask me. Here’s the latest: “It’s all very, very early, but we are developing with [Tim Burton directing] in mind,” Meledandri explained, “…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.
