Batman Returns and Sleep Hollow director Tim Burton’s The Addams Family TV reboot is in the works. And today it looks like Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) is the new fan-favorite choice for the role of Gomez Addams.
Check out some tweets below.
This comes after Small Screen says Johnny Depp is also in the running for Gomez. They said: “It’s full steam ahead on Netflix’s The Addams Family. Tim Burton wants Johnny Depp to play Gomez Addams. He thinks he would do the role justice.”
No shit. But I think Pascal is a solid choice as well.
Burton will serve as executive producer with writers and showrunners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (Smallville). The series is being financed by MGM TV. Wednesday will be the lead of the show which will also be set in the present day.
We’ll let you know when we hear more. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, remember the 1991 adaptation began when a man (Christopher Lloyd) claiming to be Fester, the missing brother of Gomez Addams (Raul Julia), arrives at the Addams’ home, the family is thrilled. However, Morticia (Anjelica Huston) begins to suspect the man is a fraud since he cannot recall details of Fester’s life. With the help of lawyer Tully Alford (Dan Hedaya), Fester manages to get the Addams clan evicted from their home. Gomez also realizes the two men are conspiring to swindle the Addams fortune and that he must challenge Fester.
