Catherine Zeta-Jones joins Tim Burton’s Addams Family spin-off

Zeta-Jones will play Morticia to Guzman’s Gomez.

Catherine Zeta-Jones will reunite with Luis Guzman, her co-star in Steven Sodebergh’s critically acclaimed “Traffic” (2001), on the live-action “Wednesday” series over at Netflix.

Tim Burton is working on the live-action “Addams Family” series, with Jenna Ortega set to play the title role.

Zeta-Jones will play Morticia to Guzman’s Gomez.

Developed by “Smallville” alums Al Gough and Miles Millar, the series is described as “a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. Wednesday’s attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.”

“Batman” helmer Burton is making his TV directorial debut on the show.
