Burton’s “Addams Family 3D” Progresses

“Despicable Me” producer Christopher Meledandri tells Coming Soon that the rumored new 3D “Addams Family” movie first mentioned earlier this year is moving forward but is still in very early stages.

“It’s all very, very early, but we are developing with [Tim Burton directing] in mind. 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” says Meledandri.

Meledandri confirmed that the plan is to use a 3D/stop-motion technique and base it on the original Charles Addams comics that appeared in New Yorker magazine and inspired the live-action TV sitcom.
