Longtime collaborators Tim Burton & Johnny Depp could reunite for Burton's reboot of 'The Addams Family,' according to a report from Small Screen.

The report says that Burton has been eyeing Depp for the role of Gomez Addams and feels he could do it justice.

The filmmaker's live-action TV debut is likely to premiere on Netflix, says the source, as will be set in modern times with the story being told through the perspective of Wednesday Addams.

Johnny Depp was recently replaced in the 'Fantastic Beasts' franchise after losing a libel case against a UK tabloid over accusations of him beating his ex-wife, Amber Heard. However, rumors have been floating around about him reprising his Jack Sparrow role in an upcoming 'Pirates of the Caribbean' film. Depp has previously worked with Burton on 'Edward Scissorhands,' 'Sweeney Todd,' 'Dark Shadows,' 'Corpse Bride,' & 'Sleepy Hollow'.
