Sausage Party filmmaker Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan will direct the film that is sure to tap into the recent popularity of family friendly animated movies. In a statement Vernon said
“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. 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.”
They’re creepy and they’re kooky, and the new look Adams Family will be haunting cinemas in October 11th 2019.
