Things We Saw Today: MGM’s The Addams Family Movie Has Hauntingly Fantastic Cast

Sometimes perfect voice casting just happens and there is no purer example than Oscar Isaac and Charlize Theron to voice great gothic romance of our lives: Gomez and Morticia Addams.

According to EW the rest of the great house of Addams will be made up of Chloë Grace Moretz as Wednesday, Finn Wolfhard as Pugsley, Nick Kroll as Uncle Fester, and Bette Midler as Grandmama. Allison Janney will play the villain, “a nefarious reality TV makeover queen named Margaux Needler, who’s described as ‘consumed with a desire for absolute suburban pastel perfection.'”

While nothing will compare to the 1991 film version or the 1964 television show for me, this still looks really fun and the art style for the characters looks great.

The Addams Family will hit theaters Oct. 11, 2019.

  • Joss Whedon has a new gig. He will be producing a Freeform female detective comedy series (via Variety).
