Catherine Zeta-Jones (“The Darling Buds of May”) and Luis Guzmán (“Traffic”) have been cast as Morticia and Gomez Addams in the upcoming “Wednesday” TV series. We have previously announced that Jenna Ortega (“The Babysitter: Killer Queen”) will play Wednesday Addams, with Tim Burton directing. The new live-action coming-of-age comedy “Wednesday” will see everyone’s favorite maiden of the macabre graduate into a full fledged leading lady.
Production is likely to start soon and there are no details about other cast or release dates at this early stage. Tim Burton will be directing alongside Alfred Gough and Miles Millar who will act as showrunners and executive producers.
The upcoming eight-episode series is a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday’s years as a student at the peculiar Nevermore Academy. Wednesday’s attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago – all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships of the strange and diverse student body.
