Morticia Addams in Tim Burton’s Wednesday
Carolyn Jones and Anjelica Huston (and the voice of Charlize Theron) got here earlier than her, and now it’s Catherine Zeta-Jones’ likelihood to glam it up as spooky, ooky Addams household matriarch Morticia. The Oscar winner is the most recent casting addition to Tim Burton’s upcoming series for Netflix following the supernatural adventures of teenager Wednesday Addams.
While different particulars in regards to the sequence are nonetheless scarce—Zeta-Jones is Morticia, Luis Guzmán is her hubby Gomez, and Jenna Ortega is Wednesday, and that’s about all we all know up to now—it appears considerably probably that the Morticia and Gomez characters will take extra of a again seat in this specific story. The eight-episode present’s not titled The Addams Family, in spite of everything, it’s Wednesday—and as Variety reminds us, Burton will very a lot be turning the deal with that particular character, bringing us “a supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. Wednesday’s attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago—all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.”
There are undoubtedly some Chilling Adventures of Sabrina-type vibes coming off that description, and after some profession detours involving Johnny Depp lined in particular results make-up and a live-action Disney flying elephant, it’s thrilling to contemplate what Tim Burton might create by actually embracing a return to his goth roots. He’ll govt produce and direct alongside Wednesday creators and showrunners Al Gough and Miles Millar; up to now there’s no phrase but on when the sequence would possibly finger-snap its strategy to Netflix.
