Tim Burton Making "Addams Family 3D"

By our guest blogger, Matt Jussim

"Alice in Wonderland 3D" and "Sweeney Todd" helmer Tim Burton is doing yet another remake with a 3D stop-motion animated version of "The Addams Family."

According to Deadline NY:  This new version however will not be related to the classic TV comedy or the 90s films, but rather the original Charles Addams drawings that appeared in New Yorker magazine and inspired the show. This version will likely have a more adult and witty tone in line with the original drawings.

Burton’s experience in animated film is extensive. He last directed "The Corpse Bride," and is making a feature version of "Frankenweenie," the 1984 30-minute short film Burton made about a boy who reanimates his dead dog. Burton recently produced "9," as well as the classic stop-motion animated "The Nightmare Before Christmas," for which he wrote the story.

I thought “Alice in Wonderland” was a bit overrated, but I think Burton is still a brilliant filmmaker. This project sounds perfect for him, especially due to the fact that it’s based on the original cartoons rather than the more recent films.

The project will hire a writer soon.
