    I’m guessing with the voices of Johnny Depp as “Gomez” and Helena Bonham Carter as “Morticia”, no doubt?

    why does Tim Burton have to get his dirty, egotistical paws on my classic, beloved childhood stories and taint(or dare I say RUIN) them for me and everyone else. He should write his own story if he is so creative and imaginitave.

  • get some goddamn originality

    OH COME ON. he already assraped alice in wonderland

    let me guess, johnny depp as gomez and helena bonham carter as morticia?


  • yep

    angelina jolie as morticia no make up needed!

  • nox

  • AdamFamilyFan

    Angelina Jolie as Morticia – it will be a box office success.

  • Bonnie

    I fear he will ruin it. Too many mannerisms etc.

  • Helen

    did she shave her legs???

  • Mack

    I am NOT excited about Tim Burton doing this. He always makes everything his own, and that ISN’T a good thing! After this, if you ask someone about the Addams Family, they’ll say, “That Tim Burton movie? Oh yeah, it was so good.” I don’t want to hear that. I don’t care if Tim Burton follows what Charles Addams originally did. I can’t stand him. Besides, if Tim Burton does do the Addams Family, you KNOW Johnny Depp will play Gomez and Helena Bonham Carter will play Morticia. Newsflash! Gomez is Spanish AND is slightly pudgy! Depp is neither! AND Morticia doesn’t have a big head OR big eyes like Helena Bonham Carter! I say Tim Burton should stick to other things, and not ruin the Addams Family that I love.

    Everyone needs to shut-up about how he needs to get a new idea. What would be the point if every story was the same way since the begin of time, they would suckk. && I hope helena && johnny to play Gomez && Morticia, if Tim Burton picks other people it would suck, they all have great chemistry && you can see it on screen.
    By the way you all are saying he should change, but millions love his redo of films just the way he does them, && that would be why he’s popular.
    –PS: Helena Bonham Carter is his girlfriend, not wife, they live together && have kids, but there not legally married.

    I have very faint memory with Adam family hope the 3D movie transition will be good.

  • Larry

    Love Tim Burton movie.

    Give this a chance! First off, if youre saying that Burton “never has any original ideas”, that’s bull. I don’t think Ive ever seen anything more original and downright amazing and cool than edward scissorhands, nightmare before christmas, beetlejuice, the corpse bride, etc. His movies are always great, even his remakes or adaptions (big fish, sleepy hollow, sweeny todd) and have been total hits ever since he’s started making them. The Addams Family story has never been shown like this (stop-action) and you all KNOW it will be good with Burton’s quirky/creepy/dark/twisted/visually amazing and beautiful art. GIVE IT A CHANCE PEOPLE. There’s ALWAYS a chance movies might not be good, but looking at how talented, successful and great Tim Burton is, I would be very surprised considering his history and blockbuster hits, if it was bad. I’m excited. (by the way, it’s stop-action filming just like corpse brde and nightmare, so the people can only do the voices, they wont be on screen)

    I LOVE Tim Burton, and I LOVE The Addams Family, but I don’t like the idea of a Tim Burton stop-motion animation of the Addams family. I would love it as a Live action style, but not how his stop motion films are. That’s just not my style for the Addams I guess.
