The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Conrad Vernon ( Shrek 2, Monsters vs Aliens and Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted) will helmet MGM Stuios‘ animated film adaptation of Charles Addams’ The Addams Family comics at Cinesite Studios. Pamela Pettler and Matt Lieberman are in charge of the animated film composition.
The Addams Family originally appeared as an unrelated group of 150 single-panel cartoons, about half of which were originally published in The New Yorker between their debut in 1938 and Charles Addams’ death in 1988. The comic spawned a number of television series, animated series and live-action movies.
A release date yet been revealed.
