Burton will not adopt Addams Family

This morning, Cinematical posted a retraction-denial regarding an article posted yesterday, which had stated that Tim Burton would be making a 3D stop-motion version of THE ADDAMS FAMILY. The source of the news was Deadline Hollywood. MTV followed up on the story and got this response from Burton’s reps:

“There is no truth to the story. Tim has not lined up any of his upcoming projects.”

Placing special emphasis on the second sentence, MTV’s Adam Rosenberg speculates that “not lined up” does not mean “out of the question” and suggests the project could be something Burton is tentatively considering for the nebulous future. But it would have to take its place in line with numerous other projects, including the feature film version of DARK SHADOWS and a 3D stop-motion version of his old short subject, FRANKENWEENIE.
