The Addams Family has found a new leader. Variety reports Conrad Vernon has been tapped to direct MGM’s upcoming film adaptation of the ABC TV show.
The original 1960s series followed the macabre Addams family, which included Gomez (John Astin), Morticia (Carolyn Jones), Wednesday (Lisa Loring), Pugsley (Ken Weatherwax), and Uncle Fester (Jackie Coogan). The show has been adapted for film before, with the 1991 movie starring Raul Julia and its 1993 sequel, Addams Family Values.
MGM’s Addams Family movie will be animated, with Vernon directing a script from Pamela Pettler.
