Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan are co-directing from Matt Lieberman’s screenplay based on the Charles Addams’ cartoon series. The film will be produced by Vernon with Gail Berman, via her shingle The Jackal Group, and Alex Schwartz. It will be executive produced by Andrew Mittman, Kevin Miserocchi, and Joe Earley.

Their popularity led to “The Addams Family” becoming a television show in the 1960s that starred John Astin and Carolyn Jones, an animated series in the early 1970s, and two movies in the early 1990s toplined by Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia, and Christina Ricci.

“The Addams Family” will open on Oct. 11, 2019.
