Many have retold The Addams Family‘s story various times over the years. American cartoonist Charles Addams first created the fictional household and its characters in 1938. However, the story has had various screen adaptations over the years, including two other live-action television series. More recently, The Addams Family had an animated movie, with a sequel arriving in 2021.
And while there have been remakes in the past, Burton’s version will undoubtedly be something all its own. It will be his first-ever live-action TV series, and he’ll tell it all through the lens of Wednesday Addams. Many are expecting him to tell the family’s story in modern-day times.
But if that news wasn’t enough to make you jump out of your seat, it’s rumored that Johnny Depp may play Gomez Addams in the series.
In honor of the exciting news, we decided to have some fun and create a quiz to figure out which Addams Family character you’re most like based on your personality. You can take the Addams Family quiz below.
More on Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp might make his return to acting very soon by starring in the Addams Family reboot.
Last month, we learned that Warner Bros. asked Depp to step down from his role as Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts franchise. The news arrived shortly after Depp lost a libel case against the U.K.-based tabloid The Sun over a 2018 article alleging he was a “wife beater.”
Although Depp plans to appeal the ruling, we learned last week that Warner Bros. have already recast him in Fantastic Beasts 3. After numerous rumors, the company confirmed that Mads Mikkelsen will be portraying Grindelwald going forward. The franchise’s star Eddie Redmayne confirmed in September that filming for Fantastic Beasts 3 has resumed following coronavirus delays.
Even though Depp is no longer part of the Fantastic Beasts franchise, we may see him onscreen again soon. According to Small Screen, Depp is in the running to play Gomez Addams in Tim Burton’s TV adaptation of The Addams Family.
According to one of Small Screen‘s sources, The Addams Family TV show will most likely debut on Netflix. Additionally, Burton believes Depp is a great fit for the role.
“It’s full steam ahead on Netflix’s The Addams Family,” the source says. “Tim Burton wants Johnny Depp to play Gomez Addams. He thinks he would do the role justice.”
Of course, Depp and Burton are a match made in cinematic heaven. The duo has worked together on various projects over the years, including Edward Scissorhands, Sweeney Todd, Dark Shadows, Sleepy Hollow and Corpse Bride. As longtime collaborators, it’s really no surprise that the director is considering Depp for the role of Gomez Addams.
