Stop motion Addams Family still a go, wants Tim Burton to direct

I'm not sure I could write a more expected movie news headline than “Tim Burton to direct stop-motion Addams Family movie,” yet here we are, with new info leading us toward that inevitable conclusion. Producer Christopher Meledandri spoke to ComingSoon, and said that the project was still in motion, and looking for Tim Burton to helm it.

"It's all very, very early, but we are developing with [Tim Burton directing] in mind," said Meledandri, "...We're just now at the story phase. Stuff has been written as though we are doing it in black and white, but that's not correct. It's not incorrect, but it's not correct. We haven't gotten to that point."

You would think with all the hate being hefted at the once-loved Burton these days, he would get his act together and starting trying to do some original shit again, but instead he’s probably doing yet another gothic rendering of existing material, and has even less work to do this time, as the existing material is already gothic to begin with.

Could this be cool? Yeah, I guess so, but I’m picturing it being almost identical in style and mood to NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS and CORPSE BRIDE. Whether or not you think that’s a good thing is up to you I suppose.

Extra Tidbit: I was always more of a Munster’s guy myself.
