TIM BURTON DOING HIS VERSION OF "THE ADDAMS FAMILY"

"Deadline New York" reveals that Tim Burton's next project might be "The Addams Family". It will be a 3D stop-motion version of the Addams family but it will not be similar to the previous popular movie versions. Burton is planning to go back to the original cartoon drawings of Charles Addams from "The New Yorker" magazine. Apparently the new "Addams Family" members will have the sharper wit like in the stories from the original drawings.
But before that, Burton must finish "Frankenweenie" again a 3D stop-motion animation about a pet dog brought back to life by his loyal owner, which will be shot in black & white for a 2011 release.

  2. Yeah, Mason, but if it's stop-motion animation... then we wouldn't get to look at Johnny...

  3. I've said it before, I'll say it again. WORK ON DARK SHADOWS TIM BURTON!!! He and Depp have been talking about Dark Shadows for years always acting like it's the next project and then I keep hearing how Burton's next project is to remake something else! I'm about to go on a Burton strike and not pay to see another one of his films until Dark Shadows is at least in production.

  4. yes it's stop-motion like his CORPSE BRIDE and NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS :)

    Answer, have you been to cinemas to watch ALICE?

  5. I saw Alice. I really liked it. But I'm weird like that. It was gorgeous.

    (the ending was wacky though...)

  6. Now it is a good time for this. I am sure it will be more gothic then what we watched as children.

    I don't know why all the bloggers around here think they're weird :PPP

    @Avalon
    It will be less for kids and more for adults.

    @Simon
    Dear Simon you're reading my mind :)

    Burton could definitely pull this off.

  9. Frankenweenie is next in the line :) The Rabbits and Chesire Cats had the privilege to be done first :)

  10. If only it wasn't planed as black and white. :( Maybe I'll need to watch that old (but fantastic) black and white series once again. It could be my training for rigors of black and white pictures in 21 century. :)

  11. yes, that black and white part does sound a bit strange, but then again it is Burton we are talking about here :)
