Coming off the "Commercial" success of his suspect Alice in Wonderland for Disney, Tim Burton aligned himself with Universal’s Illumination Entertainment and producer Chris Meledandri to resurrect The Addams Family. The goal, to create a stop-motion animated film in 3D, similar to what Burton is doing with Frankenweenie right now.
Burton has now brought together his screenwriting team of Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski who penned 1994s Ed Wood, arguably Burton’s directorial peak. So can Burton finally re-find his form?
Burton’s Addamses will be based on Charles Addams’ original cartoons and not the old TV show or the ’90s movies. Look at that print below and tell me it doesn’t scream Tim Burton.
