'Sausage Party's' Conrad Vernon to Direct Animated 'Addams Family' Movie

Conrad Vernon, co-director of Sausage Party, has signed on to helm MGM's upcoming The Addams Family animated feature. The Addams Family began as a popular comic strip that was featured in the New Yorker and illustrated by cartoonist Charles Addams.

Throughout the 1970s, The Addams Family returned to TV for several specials, reunions, and animated shows. The series took great joy in offering a satirical, slightly macabre look at the modern family. The parents were named Gomez and Morticia, their children named Wednesday and Pugsley.

Vernon will also produce the movie with Gail Berman and Alex Schwartz, with Andrew Mittman and Kevin Miserocchi exec producing. But the family made its biggest comeback in 1991 with the live-action feature film starring Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia, and Christina Ricci. Additional members of this atypical family include their butler Lurch, Uncle Fester, Cousin Itt and Thing.

Pamela Pettler (Corpse Bride, Monster House) wrote the new screenplay based on the cartoons, with revisions by Matt Lieberman. The development of the movie was announced in 2013.

Tim Burton did seem like a flawless fit for the animated film. Since then, Hollywood has been trying to bring The Addams Family back, with Tim Burton considering a stop-motion animated film as far back as 2010.

Vernon is known for co directing Shrek 2, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted and Monsters vs. Aliens. Sausage Party, which Vernon co-directed by Greg Tiernan, starred the voices of Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Edward Norton, and Salma Hayek.
