Remember the classic Adams Family movies and the cartoons? Well the cartoon is coming back…. To the big screen!!
It’s the era of reboots and remakes. Hate them or love them this one should be entertaining. The cast is pretty stellar featuring 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.
It’s directed by Sausage Party team Vernon and Greg Tiernan direct from Matt Lieberman’s screenplay based on the Charles Addams’ iconic cartoon series.
The film 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 will be distributed by MGM on October 11, 2019.
