The Addams Family Animated Film Finds Director
MGM will be resurrecting The Addams Family for an animated feature with Conard Vernon.
Vernon is known for co-directing adult animated film, Sausage Party. Vernon has directed several animated films, including Madagascar 3, Monsters vs Aliens, and Shrek 2. Vernon will also produce the animated film, alongside Gail Berman and Alex Schwartz.
The Addams Family began as a satirical cartoon from Charles Addams. The Addams Family is an inversion of the ideal 20th century family. Since their debut in 1938 the family has had two live-action television shows, a television film, three theatrical films, a Broadway show, and various TV animated appearances including their own animated show. Needless to say, the family is incredibly popular and have had lasting pop cultural staying power.
The animated film will be based on Pamela Pettler’s script. She previously wrote Corpse Bride and Monster House. This animated film has been in development since 2013.
