Tim Burton to direct 3D film of 'Addams Family' in Stop-Motion Animation; March Madness in April in 3D in Brooklyn

Deadline New York reports that Tim Burton's next 3D project is set: an adaptation of Charles Addams's cartoon creations from The New Yorker to be done using the stop-motion animation technique he employed so successfully in The Nightmare Before Christmas. That film's director Henry Selick had great success with stop-motion 3D animation in last year's release Coraline.

Of course, the road from announced project to completed and released film is often a bumpy one and is completely without guarantees. But this sounds like the perfect marriage of a darkly comic sensibility teamed with source material that seems tailor made for Mr. Burton's talents.
