“Alice in Wonderland 3D” and “Sweeney Todd” helmer Tim Burton is doing yet another remake with a 3D stop-motion animated version of “The Addams Family” reports Deadline NY.
This new version however will not be related to the classic TV comedy or the 90’s films, but rather the original Charles Addams drawings that appeared in New Yorker magazine and inspired the show. This version will likely have a more adult and witty tone in line with the original drawings.
A writer is being sought for the film and should be hired shortly. Burton’s next project, “Frankenweenie”, uses a 3D/stop-motion technique that will also be employed on this.
