Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron and Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard will star in a forthcoming animated ‘Addams Family’ movie.
Isaac and Theron will star as dad Gomez and mum Morticia Addams, while Wolfhard will voice Pugsley. Chloë Grace Moretz will step into the shoes of Wednesday Addams and Bette Midler will voice Grandmama.
Nick Kroll has also been confirmed as Uncle Fester and 2018 Oscar winner Allison Janney will voice Margaux Needler – a reality TV makeover host.
Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan – the pair behind the animated adult movie Sausage Party – will direct the new CG film. MGM released the first picture of the animated Addams family, which you can see below.
Simply titled ‘The Addams Family,’ it will arrive in cinemas on October 11, 2019.
The Addams Family were created by cartoonist Charles Addams, who drew the creepy clan for The New Yorker from 1938 until his death in 1988. The characters of Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday and Pugsley became famous when they appeared in a popular US sitcom in the 1960s.
A pair of live-action feature films, The Addams Family and Addams Family Values, followed in the 1990s with Anjelica Huston, Raúl Juliá and Christina Ricci starring as members of the creepy clan.
Meanwhile, Wolfhard is hard at work on Stranger Things season three. In December 2017 David Harbour said fans “probably won’t get [Season 3] until sometime in 2019” because the Duffer brothers “need time” to write it. “Those guys work so hard,” he said. “I mean, they just sit in their apartment and write for 12, 14 hours a day.”
