Some 10 years in the past, Tim Burton got here shut to creating an Addams Household film, executed in cease movement and within the type of Charles Addams’ basic New Yorker cartoons. That by no means occurred. However one thing near it’s now within the works: Wednesday, an eight-episode, live-action Netflix sequence directed and govt produced by Burton, which follows the household’s Goth icon of a daughter.
