Tim Burton to remake Addams Family?

Alice In Wonderland director tipped to make stop-motion film

Tim Burton could be set for a return to animation with a remake of The Addams Family.

The director – whose recent film Alice in Wonderland received mixed reviews – is said to be basing the film on the original cartoon drawings of the Addams Family, recently acquired by Universal, rather than the Barry Sonnenfeld films, or the camp TV series.

It would be a return to stop-motion animation for Burton, who directed the animated Corpse Bride and The Nightmare Before Christmas.

According to Deadline, no writer has yet been hired, but the film is set to be in 3D.
