Oscar Isaac The Addams Family

Christmas has come early for the Internet, which should be delighted by this news — just as Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters, its star is in negotiations to voice Gomez Addams in MGM’s animated movie , the Tracking Board has learned.

Conrad Vernon (Sausage Party) will direct from a screenplay by Pamela Pettler (Corpse Bride), with revisions by Matt Lieberman. Vernon will also produce alongside Gail Berman of The Jackal Group and Alex Schwartz.

Andrew Mittman and Kevin Miserocchi will serve as executive producers, and MGM executive Tabitha Shick is overseeing the project for the studio. Production is currently under way at Cinesite Studios in Vancouver.

The Internet has collectively lobbied for Isaac to play Gomez for years, as the actor makes a fine physical substitute for Raul Julia, who played the mustachioed role in two feature films from the early 90s. Those followed the popular TV series in the 1960s that starred John Astin, as well as an animated series in the early 1970s. Created by Charles Addams, the characters first appeared in single-panel gag illustrations that were published in The New Yorker.

There’s no word on any casting yet for Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Lurch or Uncle Fester yet, as MGM is waiting to close its deal with Isaac first before moving on to the rest of the family. The deal could still hit a snag, but voice roles are considered easy money, and Isaac hasn’t done a major animated movie yet, so this would be as good a fit as any.

Isaac can currently be seen reprising his role as dashing hero Poe Dameron in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is on pace for a $200 million opening weekend. He also stars opposite Natalie Portman in the sci-fi movie Annihilation, which reunites Isaac with his Ex Machina director Alex Garland. Isaac recently wrapped Dan Fogelman’s ensemble drama Life Itself, which was just snapped up by Amazon for $10 million, and he’s currently filming the historical thriller Operation Finale, which finds him hunting down Nazi leader Adolf Eichmann (Ben Kingsley).

Isaac, who is also producing Operation Finale with Fred Berger, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Jason Spire, is represented by , and attorney .
