MGM is in final negotiations with Gail Berman and Lloyd Braun to produce an animated film based on Charles Addams' classic "Addams Family" cartoons.
The classic cartoon originated in single panel cartoons which were published in The New Yorker over a fifty year timeframe. The characters became famous due to the classic 1960s sitcom along with the early 1990s feature films.
Pamela Pettler ("Corpse Bride," "Monster House") has been signed to write the screenplay for the film which Andrew Mittman and Kevin Miserocchi will executive produce.
Illumination Entertainment had been developing a Tim Burton-helmed, stop-motion "Addams Family" film, but that project was dropped a while ago.
