Animated Addams Family movie announces voice cast including Finn Wolfhard

The voice cast for MGM's upcoming animated THE ADDAMS FAMILY flick was announced today! Turns out the cast officially includes Oscar Isaac as Gomez Addams, Charlize Theron as Morticia Addams, Chloë Grace Moretz as Wednesday Addams, Finn Wolfhard as Pugsley Addams, Nick Kroll as Uncle Fester, Bette Midler as Grandmama and Allison Janney as the family’s arch nemesis Margaux Needler.

Co-director Conrad Vernon: 

Greg and I have always been a fan of the Addams Family in past versions, so when we set out to make this movie, we were excited to do something new. With that in mind, I drew from the brilliantly original Charles Addams New Yorker cartoons for the look of the film and decided to tell the story of how Gomez and Morticia meet, find their house and start their family. This unique approach is what drew me in to direct the film. The reimagining also extends to the stellar cast we’ve put together who will each bring their own spin to our film that will appeal to longtime fans of the Addams and introduce them to a new generation.  

Vernon (SAUSAGE PARTY) and Greg Tiernan direct from Matt Lieberman’s screenplay based on the Charles Addams' iconic cartoon series. This animated action-comedy will follow:

The Addams family whose lives begin to unravel when they face-off against a crafty reality-TV host while also preparing for their extended family to arrive for a major celebration, Addams-style. Morticia, devilishly devoted to her husband and children, is the pale glue that holds her clan together. Gomez, debonair, sinister and passionately in love with his wife, is enthusiastic about whatever dreadful scheme he’s cooked up. Wednesday is a brilliant and sinister teenage girl with long braids and deadpan wit. Pugsley, a menacing 10-year-old on over-drive, enjoys getting into any kind of dreadful mischief he can find. Mad Uncle Fester is good-natured, merry and likes to create mayhem any way he can. Grandmama is smitten with her grandchildren who enjoy her cookies shaped like bats and skulls. Margaux Needler, the reality TV makeover queen, is consumed with a desire for absolute suburban, pastel perfection.

The film is produced by Vernon with Gail Berman and Alex Schwartz. It's executive produced by Andrew Mittman, Kevin Miserocchi, and Joe Earley. Tabitha Shick is overseeing the project on behalf of the studio. CG Animation and digital visual effects production is underway in Vancouver at Cinesite Studios. The film will be distributed theatrically in the U.S. by MGM on October 11, 2019.
