Christina Ricci rumored to be under consideration for Morticia.

HEY! WE’RE ALL OLD! “Tim Burton is developing a spin-off series at Netflix based on The Addams Family daughter, Wednesday… [a report says] production is looking at franchise alum Christina Ricci to join the cast as Wednesday’s mother Morticia Addams.”

Seriously, though, I’m down. I am fine with Tim Burton trying his hand at The Addams Family and it’s a clever conceit, using Ricci to play Morticia. Successful or not, Burton will at least make the movie interesting. That’s not always guaranteed, when you’re talking about a sequel to an existing IP.

…Yeah, I agree with the above, but that’s not what I’m coming back to. What I’m coming back to is, again, somehow I’m in my fifties and the kid I watched in the movies is now maybe going to play that character’s mother. What happened?

Tim Burton looking to make THE ADDAMS FAMILY series.


Tim Burton is looking to make the move into TV is a live-action series adaption of The Addams Family. This would be Burton’s first big live-action TV series, and he is currently negotiating to direct all of the episodes and executive produce the show.

Why are you doing this, Tim? What is your victory condition here, Tim? How do you intend to bear up under the weight of previous television shows and movies here, Tim? – Bear in mind that I can readily believe that you have answers to these questions, Tim. I am merely concerned that you may have not asked these questions beforehand, and that would be sad.
