Variety reports that Oscar Isaac is in talks to voice the role of Gomez Addams in an upcoming animated film based on the property, with Conrad Vernon - director of Sausage Party - lined up to helm a script from Corpse Bride scribe Pamela Pettler.
The fan favorite who has inspired many a Tumblr meme and devotional Twitter post is primed to make fans dreams come true.
Isaac hasn't officially agreed to the voice-acting role just yet, but these negotiations are reportedly expected to end in the actor signing on the dotted line and joining the creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky family. It's likely that if Isaac boards the project, the creative team could shape the rest of the cast around him. Isaac is one of the best actors working today. The internet has been fancasting Isaac as Gomez for months now, usually with either Ruth Negga or Eva Green as Morticia, and it seems like the sort of role he would totally own.
