'Sausage Party's' Conrad Vernon to Direct Animated 'Addams Family' Movie

'Sausage Party's' Conrad Vernon to Direct Animated 'Addams Family' Movie

Andrew Mittman and Kevin Miserocchi will executive produce and MGM's Tabitha Shick will oversee the Addams Family animated feature. The Addams Family began as a popular comic strip that was featured in the New Yorker and illustrated by cartoonist Charles Addams. The television series The Addams Family starred John Astin as father Gomez Addams, Carolyn Jones as mother Morticia Addams, Lisa Loring as daughter Wednesday Friday Addams, Ken Weatherwax as son Pugsley Addams, along with Jackie Coogan as Uncle Fester, Ted Cassidy as the butler Lurch, and Blossom Rock as Grandmama Addams. Pamela Pettler, whose resume includes other creepy animations like Corpse Bride and Monster House, wrote the script based on the cartoons, with revisions by Matt Lieberman (whose credits include the upcoming Scooby and The Jetsons films). The film will be produced by Vernon, Gail Berman from The Jackal Group and Alex Schawrtz. The family enjoyed a revival in the early 1990s with a pair of hit movies that starred Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia and Christina Ricci.

The Addams Family series is known for giving the ideal American family a morbid and satirical spin. The development of the movie was announced in 2013.

Tim Burton did seem like a flawless fit for the animated film.

Conrad Vernon who directed the raunchy animated comedy Sausage Party is on board to helm MGM's upcoming animated take on The Addams Family, according to THR.

An animation veteran, Vernon has worked on films like Shrek 2, Monsters vs Aliens, and Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted.

For the moment, no detail has filtered out the screenplay for the film, the voice cast, or even a hypothetical release date, but we can expect to hear from her very quickly, all that preparing from the outset to discover a show with a strong focus towards the family audience.
