The Art of Darkness

A Possible Hooray

Deadline is reporting that Tim Burton is planning to do a 3-D stop-motion animated film based on Charles Addams’ original cartoons of The Addams Family. It will be unrelated to the TV series and movies (other than being based on the same source material), and they say that, “His intention is to go back to the litany of Addams illustrations that displayed a sharper wit than could be place into a 60s family TV series.”

I should be utterly, hopelessly thrilled by this news, and I would be, if his last couple of films didn’t make this College Humor video seem uncomfortably accurate:

    I do worry that Burton’s personal vision and style is so strong that if he tried to do the Addams Family he would overwhelm what Addams did. The Anjelica Huston/ Raul Julia films had plenty of pieces that were straight out of the original drawings anyway, right from the very first scene where they’re pouring boiling oil on the carol singers.
