Our favorite macabre family is making its way back to the big screen.
The new animated film follows the kooky family as they face off against a reality-TV host while also preparing for their extended family to arrive for a major celebration, à la Addams.
MGM has finally released the official voice cast list for the upcoming film. Oscar Isaac and Charlize Theron have been as the voices of Gomez and Morticia Addams respectively. Voicing their daughter Wednesday is Chloe Grace Moretz. Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard has been tapped to voice the Addams’ son, Pugsley. Finally, Bette Midler will play grandmama and Allison Janney will voice the family’s archenemies Margaux Needler
Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan will co-direct from a screenplay by Matt Lieberman based on the characters created by Charles Addams.. The film will be produced by Vernon with Gail Berman, via The Jackal Group.
“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,” said Vernon. “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.”
The Addams Family hits theaters October 11, 2019.
