Tim Burton to Direct 3D Stop-Motion "Addams Family"
It has been revealed that Illumination Entertainment has aquired the underlying rights to Charles Addams’ Addams Family cartoons (the original drawings that inspired the sixties sitcom), and that Tim Burton is set to direct a 3D stop-motion film based on them.
Chris Meledandri will produce the film, with Kevin Miserocchi of the Tee and Charles Addams Foundation serving as executive producer. A writer has yet to be hired.
