It's a match made in goth heaven: Tim Burton, cinematic master of the charmingly macabre, and the lovably ghoulish Addams Family.

Deadline New York reports that Burton, who's currently riding high on his hit 'Alice in Wonderland,' will direct a stop-motion animated film based on illustrator Charles Addams' original drawings that first appeared In the New Yorker.

UPDATE 03/19: The story has since been denied by Burton himself, who told MTV News, "There is no truth to the story. Tim has not lined up any of his upcoming projects."
