It was reported last month that Rob Zombie would be developing a reboot of the sitcom The Munsters. With that news comes a rumor from Bloody-Disgusting that the project would be an exclusive on Peacock, and “will open day-and-date in theaters via Universal Pictures/UPHE, similar to what Warner Bros. is doing with HBO Max.”
Now, the original report about the rumored reboot – from Murphy’s Multiverse – stated that:
Production on the film is currently set to begin in Budapest in early May. Two of Zombie’s usual suspects have been cast as leads in the comedy with Jeff Daniel Phillips set as Herman Munster and Zombie’s wife, Sheri Moon Zombie, set as Lily Munster. Dan Roebuck, Jorge Garcia and Richard Brake have also joined the cast in major roles and Cassandra Peterson, better known as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, has also joined on in a supporting role.
No release date has been set for the film at this time.
Now Zombie is an acquired taste at best. What he did with the Halloween franchise was polarizing to say the least. Will this incarnation of the Munsters be foul-mouthed rednecks? Who knows. What do you think of this news? Let us know in the comments.
