Tim Burton and 'Ed Wood' Writers Reunite for 'The Addams Family'

The iconic Hollywood director Tim Burton is reuniting with his scribes from his genius work and award-winning movie “Ed Wood” to create his own take of “The Addams Family,” Deadline reports.
Addams Family will be based on the humorous, macabre drawings of Charles Addams, the cartoonist who created the Addams Family cast of characters that first appeared in the New Yorker in 1938. The project's producer, Chris Meledandri, acquired the rights to those characters, and Burton plans to stick to their original sharp wit and visual style.
The Burton reboot of the Addams franchise are the plans to work with 3D stop-motion animation.
One of the writers, Karasweski said that the film will be "based on artwork that Tim absolutely loves."
"The retrospective in New York of Tim's own artwork showed how much of an influence Charles Addams was to him. We want the tone to be as darkly funny and subversive as the Addams drawings, and we've come up with an approach that nobody has done before," he added.
From “Alice In Wonderland,” this seems like the perfect return to form for Burton, and Burton and the Addams Family are like a match made in heaven. This is the kind of project that Burton can really get passionate about, with the kind of grim visual style and dark wit that have always been at the center of his most successful films. The addition of 3D to Burton's beloved stop-motion animation opens up a whole new dimension of creativity possibilities for the director and the Addams Family reboot.
