Burton to Direct The Addams Family (Whoot!)

Forget that Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter nonsense as it was announced yesterday that Tim Burton is to direct a stop-motion animation film adaptation of The Addams Family. The film will be based on Charles Addams’ original cartoon drawing and not on any previous film or TV show.

Just like Alice in Wonderland, The Addams Family fits perfectly into Burton’s aesthetic and so will hopefully be done just as well. Stop-motion animation is always exciting and I just hope it isn’t clinical like The Corpse Bride but has a bit of charm like The Nightmare Before Christmas and more recently Fantastic Mr. Fox.

Mild Concern hereby officially announces exclusively the casting of Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter. Prove us wrong Mr Burton.

Oh, it’s going to be in 3D too but we’re all over that by now right?
