MGM has confirmed that Conrad Vernon ("The Sausage Party") will direct a new animated feature adapting cartoonist Charles Addams' "The Addams Family":

"...'The Addams Family' are a satirical inversion of the ideal twentieth-century American family... an eccentric wealthy aristocratic clan who delight in the macabre...

"...seemingly unaware, or do not care, that other people find them bizarre or frightening..."

"They're creepy and they're kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They're altogether ooky, The Addams Family.

"Their house is a museum

When people come to see 'em
They really are a scream, The Addams Family.

"Neat, Sweet, Petite...

"So get a witch's shawl on

A broomstick you can crawl on

"We're gonna pay a call on
The Addams Family"

Main characters include 'Gomez', 'Morticia', 'Uncle Fester', 'Wednesday', 'Pugsley', 'Lurch'. 'Grandmama', 'Thing' and 'Cousin Itt'.
