Just in time for Halloween — the durable Addams Family is heading for another incarnation, this time as an MGM animated movie.
The Addams Family originated in 150 single panel cartoons by Addams, about half of which were published in The New Yorker between 1938 and Addams’ death in 1988. The characters became famous through ABC’s sitcom, which ran for two seasons between 1964 and 1966 and led to several other TV series, two Paramount live-action films and most recently a Broadway musical.

Reese Witherspoon brought her son, Tennessee Toth, to a toy store in La today. The mother-son duo sported matching nautical-inspired outfits for their afternoon stop, and Reese held on to her little one while feeding the meter and heading into the store. It looks like Tennessee got some shiny new toys to play with, as a shop's employee brought out two bags filled with toys and goodies and helped Reese load them up in her SUV. Reese has been keeping busy with baby Tennessee, as well as her older children, Ava and Deacon Phillippe. Reese and her lookalike daughter stepped out for a lunch date earlier this month. Professionally, Reese has a whole roster of big-screen projects lined up, including Inherent Vice, which she is currently filming with Joaquin Phoenix. She's also producing the Gone Girl adaptation, which recently made news with the cast additions of Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, »
