Johnny Depp Reportedly In Talks With Tim Burton For Addams Family Role


It’s being rumoured that Johnny Depp has been in talks with Tim Burton over a potential role in his upcoming The Addams Family TV show, and I think he’d be a perfect fit for it. This rumour comes to us from We Got This Covered’s sources.

This is something that fans have wanted to see ever since it was revealed that Tim Burton was going to be making a The Addams Family live-action show for Netflix. This just seems like the perfect fit for the show.

Tim Burton has basically been touching on many of the themes in The Addams Family his whole career. I’m quite surprised he never made an Addams Family movie or TV show before today.

I love the idea of it coming to Netflix, and I really really love the idea of Johnny Depp playing Gomez Addams in the show. I think he’d be just superb in the role.

However, there could be one issue with trying to get Johnny Depp in The Addams Family. That issue could be the current court battles going on between Depp and Amber Heard. Of course, Depp recently lost his libel case against The Sun in the United Kingdom.

He was recently asked to step down from the role of Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 3. He did end up leaving that project with $10 million. However, studios might be a bit worried to hire the actor at the moment. I really hope this doesn’t happen, but it might mean that studios could hold off on making an official casting announcement.
