'TMNT', 'Addams Family' Get Writers

August 20, 2010


In early-'90s-remake news today, Deadline has discovered who will be writing both the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Tim Burton's take on The Addams Family.

The current draft of the TMNT script was just poo-pooed by Paramount in a leaked memo, so the studio has brought on Art Marcum and Matt Holloway to rewrite this thing. The pair previously collaborated on the last Punisher film and the just-finished script for a Highlander reboot, but are best known for their Iron Man script, which was famously much better than the Iron Man 2 script.

Tim Burton, meanwhile, is reuniting with screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski for The Addams Family. The two last worked with Burton on Ed Wood, and wrote the Andy Kaufman story Man on the Moon. However, they also wrote Problem Child and Agent Cody Banks, so hard to say what to expect. The Addams Family as either an imaginative biopic or something about a kid doing wild things?

Now on to the important stuff: which lame mainstream rapper will contribute a movie-specific track to each film?
