MGM has slated its animated The Addams Family feature film for a Halloweenish October 11 2019 release date. The film, which is based on the macabre clan made famous by cartoonist Charles Addams, was directed by Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2, Monsters vs. Aliens, Sausage Party).
Also on that date is Warner Bros.’ Goldfinch, which is based on Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book, and Paramount Pictures’ Are You Afraid of the Dark?, based on the 1990s Nickelodeon show of the same name.
Cinesite Studios will provide animation and digital visual effects for The Jackal Group CG feature The Addams Family, which has been in the works the past four years. The screenplay is from Pamela Pettler with revisions by Matt Lieberman.
Producers are Gail Berman, Vernon, and Alex Schwartz. Kevin Miserochhi and Andrew Mittman are executive producers.
