The characters went on to star in two live-action tv series (1964, 1999), two animated series (1973, 1992), and two live-action theatrical movies (1991, 1993), in addition to appearing in other formats like made-for-tv movies and video games.
If there’s any silver lining to the project, it’s that the talented Conrad Vernon has climbed aboard to direct the film. It’s being animated by Cinesite Studios in Vancouver, which is the new name of the former Nitrogen Studios, where Vernon co-directed last year’s surprisingly tasty treat, Sausage Party.
Vernon, who also co-directed Madagascar 3, and Monsters vs. Aliens, has recently been attached to other projects, including the development of a Jetsons cg feature and an Amazon Studios series Amberville, based on Tim Davys’ “Mollisan Town” novel series.
Pamela Pettler (Corpse Bride, 9, Monster House) wrote the new Addams screenplay, with revisions/polish by Matt Lieberman (Dr. Dolittle: Tail to the Chief, upcoming Scooby).
Vernon will produce the film with Alex Schwartz and The Jackal Groups’s Gail Berman. Andrew Mittman and Kevin Miserocchi will exec produce, and MGM exec Tabitha Shick is overseeing for the studio.
No release date has been set for the film.
