Your Halloween this year just cannot get any better, as the kooky and unconventional family, the Addams will be spreading their dark mysteries on October 11, 2019. The poster of 'The Addams Family' was recently released in which, fans can see the family in optimum Goth-mode. The cult-classic family has never disappointed fans- and the poster comes with "Think your family is weird?" caption. Well, that's true.

What is Addams family without the daunting black, twisted heart of Morticia Addams? Even though to fill in the place of Anjelica Huston is a tough job, the one who can take up the challenge of playing the role could be none other than Charlize Theron, according to MGM in June 2018. Another one joining the creepy family is an amazing actor, Oscar Isaac who will play Gomez. Bette Midler will be back with her Hocus Pocus past as Grandmama and Nick Kroll will be playing Uncle Fester.

Conrad Vernon is co-directing the movie alongside Greg Tiernan. The script was written by Matt Lieberman, who's famous work includes 'The Christmas Chronicles'. Vernon will also be producing this horror-comedy movie, as is Gail Berman via her entity The Jackal Group and Alex Schwartz. The executive producers are Andrew Mittman, Kevin Miserocchi and Joe Earley. Whereas, MGM's Executive Director, Tabitha Shick will be overseeing the film on the studio's behalf.
The animation will revive the original New Yorker Addams Family cartoons. In a statement, Vernon said, "Greg and I have always been a fan of the Addams Family in past versions, so when we set out to make this movie, we were excited to do something new. With that in mind, I drew from the brilliantly original Charles Addams New Yorker cartoons for the look of the film and decided to tell the story of how Gomez and Morticia meet, find their house and start their family. This unique approach is what drew me in to direct the film."
Belonging to the 21st century, the film is going to be computer-generated, as Cinesite Studios will be taking care of CG Animation and digital visual effects production.
