Oscar Isaac in Talks For ADDAMS FAMILY Reboot

Oscar Isaac, who is currently in cinemas with ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi,’ is reportedly in talks to lend his voice to Gomez Addams in the animated feature film reboot of everyone’s favourite creepy crawly family, ‘The Addams Family.’

Created by Charles Addams in 1938 as a satirical spin of the ideal twentieth-century American family, ‘The Addams Family’ tells the misadventures of a blissfully macabre but extremely loving family – Gomez and Morticia Addams, their children Wednesday and Pugsley, and close family members Uncle Fester, Grandmama, their butler Lurch, the disembodied hand Thing, and Gomez’s Cousin Itt,

The popularity of Addams’ original single-panel gag illustrations spurred a live-action television series starring John Astin and Carolyn Jones, an animated series that aired in 1973, and two movies in the early 1990s starring Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia, and Christina Ricci.

Conrad Vernon, co-director on 2016’s talking-food comedy ‘Sausage Party,’ is in the director’s chair for the new animated reboot, with the script coming from Pamela Pettler, Matt Lieberman, Gail Berman and Alex Schwartz.
