Well, it's officially official: Tim Burton is making a stop-motion film based on The Addams Family. Excited? Maybe? Just a little bit? We had heard some murmurings regarding a Burton-directed Addams Family movie awhile back, and now Deadline reports the filmmaker has reunited with writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Ed Wood) on what will be a stop-motion film based on the kooky family who first appeared in single-panel cartoons back in the '30s.
i sure hope he doesnt make any more movies. he has like 3 good movies i dont understand the fascination with this guy. hes like a more well liked m night shymalan
O I can only hope so , his visions of art and the world are amazing !!!!
LOOK we already know that Johnny Depp will be Gomez and Helena Bonham Carter will be Morticia. He uses the same people in all of his movie sand it's getting tiresome.
I Think Burton would murfer the Adams Family.Why mess with a classic. And whats with his repetitive cast of characters? Must he cast johnny Depp ( the total male version of his wife Helena bonam Carter) in every movie he directs? I think he needs to get over his his man crush on Johhny depp, over depression and make a good and original movie agan, What happened to that Tim burton? I believe" The Nightmare before Christmas? was wondrfully original and imaginative. What is it with remakes now-a-days have we really ran out of ideas in Hollywood? If thats the case hire me cause I could put a fiendish and dark twist on millions of cult classics out there. Please someone stop this madness, I am so sick of Tim burton.
I think this is right up Burton's alley, and I will be excited to see how it turns out.
The guy jumped the shark years ago with EdwardScissorSweenyCharlieAliceinWonderland movie. It was all the same movie.
no . i only liked the original series
If Tim Burton does remake the Addams Family, I'm sure it will be awesome! Especially if he gets his usual case of people to do the voices. I can easily picture Johnny Depp as Gomes Addams...easily.
I think this sounds epic. As a fan of the original Addams family and love to see anything from Tim Burton - I am in! Yes we want to see an original Burton but in the meantime why be Burtonless!! Come on - admit it you will see it:)
NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT ANOTHER REMAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DOESN'T ANYONE HAVE AN ORIGINAL IDEAL ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nobody should make another Addams Family movie.........TIM BURTON......retire. Stay away from SuperHero movies. Do kids movies......you're suited for THAT......maybe the Munsters...that would be down your alley.
This movie done by burton isn't a bad idea, yeah all his movies are alike in almost every way like Michael Perce stated above, However adams family "is" like every single tim burton ever made so, having him make it is no stretch of the imagination. Will it be good, probably not, it will be a tim burton movie, and sometimes i need to watch something that will make me depressed and want to hang myself, and there is nothing better for that then a tim burton movie.
Tim Burton has RUINED every movie property he has touched. entertainment is supposed to be fun, but all of his movies are dark and depressing. The joy he was able to suck out of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory could power Legoland for a decade! The fact that this person is still entrusted with entertainment treasures shows how clueless the Hollywoold factory really is. are they all glue sniffers out there?, wait, no, that is an insult to glue sniffers. Tim Burton should only be allowed to make movies about heroin addicts.
Tim Burton SUCKS...if you have seen one Tim Burton Movie you have seen them all, he is a one-trick pony!
Let me guess, it will be dark, gothic, mostly gray with just a little spash of color (like red) and the hero will be totally misunderstood. Yeah. That was his last 10 movies.
i agree with mediamon, burton can do watever he wants cause he's just that great!! stop motion would be interesting to see for the AF i always loved the show and the movies! idk if i would want jonny in it or not..he would be great ..but hes great at everything!! and then i love to see some one else take a crack at it.. jonny's been seen a little too much(i hate to say it cause i love him but lets be rational!) yes it would be awesome if burton did an original but there must be some reason why he wont.. we might not be ready for it yet!! we all know he has some life changing and brain clicking (makes u think) ideas but he like i said we may not be ready to be shocked like that yet :) please do the AF burton!! it'll be fun!!!
If Johnny Depp is playing a lead role, which I figure he will be - based on the film making past between Depp and Burton - the movie will be spectactular! Although Alice and Wonderland was bit of a dissapointment, the Addams Family is perfectly fit for Burton. It would be lovely seeing Alan Rickman as well!
Well as long as its stop-motion animated. His biggest downfall isn't the remake syndrome or lack of original content. Its the constant casting of his wife Helena Bonham and Johnny Depp. Those faces, those foreheads- sick of em'.
YES!!! he most certianly should make this movie!!! He is a great director and he will remodel the Adams Family look!
Mr. Burton can do whatever he wants. I just hope he's selecting projects based on his own creative vision rather than satisfying the interests of the movie studios. I tend to spend my movie money on original films, like Edward Scissorhands, and skip the remakes. That said, if anyone were going to re-remake the Adams Family, a stop-motion animated Burton film sounds like a good match.
As a kid growing up in the 70s, I watched reruns of the old B&W series religiously, so for me, any Adams remake is unwelcome and likely to be forgettable. However, if Burton's movie serves to introduce the Adams' to a new generation and keep the original series alive in syndication, home video and YouTube, then it's worth the effort.
Charlie and the Choc.Fac. by Tim was more like the original book than the original movie, which I thought made it more of a classic.
Alice in Wonderland would have been better if Tim had written it himself.
I do agree that he should go back to creating orginal works rather than remakes of movies or books. His original work with "Vincent" "Stainboy" and "The Nightmare Before Xmas" were amazing and have become immortalized in the world of film.
I actually watched the 90s Addams Family movies the other night and was saying, "why the heck did Tim NOT make these?" he would have done such a better job!!! And Johnny Depp WILL be Gomez, (At least i think so). So stop leaving nasty comments about the single best director/producer/writer/filmmaker
Wait single best director/producer/writer/filmmaker???? this post is about JJ Abrams?
Tim, I get you.It would be an honor to work with you,love the view of your imagination.But leave A F alone. stick with your own work,be you. originally unique .
Burton is such a creative person, he should be using that creativity to make new, original movies, not just remakes. I'm a fan of his for sure, but the remake thing is getting old.
sounds cool can't wait
