The Addams Family Is Set To Come Back To The Big Screen - Thanks To This Interesting Director Choiceby

They’re creepy, they’re kooky – they’re heading back to the big screen. Having enjoyed a run as a musical and having been part of the pop culture landscape for several decades now, it’s hardly surprising that the Addams Family are due to make their comeback for a whole new audience in the coming months. Everyone’s favorite freaky family have famously made the leap from page to TV and to cinema in the past – so it’s hardly surprising that we’re due to check in with the creepy crew again soon. However – the choice in director for the movie may be a little interesting for some – and particularly as plans to resurrect the brand yet again has been on the slate since 2013.

Conrad Vernon is apparently on board to help bring an animated version of The Addams Family to the big screen – and cinemagoers will no doubt be fully aware of his last venture, Sausage Party – which famously rewrote the rules and possibly even the record books when it came to R-rated animation at the box office. The leap from Sausage Party to The Addams Family is rather grand – and while the aforementioned raunchy cartoon had its fair share of criticism levelled at it for various reasons, the animation remained of industry standard – though there was criticism behind the scenes as to how fair the treatment of animation staff really was.

Very little appears to be on the slate regarding the new Addams Family – save for its director and writer Pamela Pettler being on board – meaning that it seems to be a project that will have plenty of talented hands on deck. This is a brand which had previously been rumored to be under the gaze of Tim Burton – who, of course, would have fit the theme and aesthetics of the Addams to a T – but with it being nearly thirty years since the family were originally seen on the silver screen, regardless of who is at the helm, it is certainly time that we saw our favourite family again.

The news comes at an apt time – as Halloween looms – and we will hopefully be getting ready to freak out for the freakiest family around in a Halloween that’s yet to come. Why not crack out the Addams DVDs around this October 31st anyway?
