Rob Zombie Is Rebooting ‘The Munsters,’ Rumored To Be a Streaming Exclusive
Rob Zombie and TV's The Munsters will reportedly soon come together onscreen, as the musician and 3 From Hell director has been "tapped" to remake the classic '60s sitcom about a happy monster family, according to Murphy's Universe.
Rumored to be a part of NBC's streaming platform Peacock, as Bloody Disgusting added on Monday (April 19), the reboot's sure to attract fans of the Lunar Injection Kool Aid ringleader and former White Zombie frontman's high-intensity horror flicks, such as House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects.
"Production on the film is currently set to begin in Budapest in early May," Murphy's Universe reported of Zombie's The Munsters. "Two of [the filmmaker'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."
The cast will also reportedly include Dan Roebuck, Jorge Garcia and Richard Brake. Not to mention, Cassandra Peterson, known to horror buffs as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, will also play a supporting role.
Zombie told Loudwire in 2018, "I think for the most part, with most horror movies, it's the weird ones that seem to stick with people. It's not the blockbusters that did $100 million that was everywhere, that everybody loved. Sometimes those just get forgotten. It's kind of the weird movies that really hit the fan base. Like Evil Dead — that wasn't a blockbuster that did $100 million. It's a movie most people, at the time, had never even heard of. Those are the ones that stick around."
Let's see how weird his Munsters ends up.
