Rob Zombie has given us all our first glimpse of his updated version of The Munsters.
Zombie has spent the last few months in Hungary working on a film adaptation of the spooky cult TV series and took to Instagram overnight to introduce us all to The Munsters.
Zombie has been sharing regular updates to Instagram from the set of the film over the last few months, including makeup tests, set construction photos and more, but now he's taken things one step further by introducing us all to Herman, Lily and The Count. You can see Zombie's post and the photo below.
“Since Halloween is rapidly approaching,” “I thought it was the perfect time to MEET THE MUNSTERS! Direct from the set in good old Hungary I present Herman, Lily, and The Count sitting in front of the newly completed 1313 Mockingbird Lane.”
The new Munster family is made up of Jeff Daniel Phillips (Lords Of Salem, 3 From Hell) as Herman, Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily, and Dan Roebuck (The Fugitive, Final Destination) as Grandpa.
The original TV sitcom version of The Munsters ran for two seasons in the mid-'60s but has established an incredibly strong cult following amongst later generations, with telemovie sequels, The Munsters Today TV series and a plethora of film and TV adaptations have been attempted since with ultimately none seeing public release (the closest to coming to fruition was Bryan Fuller's Mockingbird Lane pilot for NBC). Now finally it appears Rob Zombie was the man with the plan and the clout to finally make it happen as The Munsters will premiere on Peacock in 2022! Now excuse us while we go and sort out our Lily costume for Halloween!
Listen to Rob Zombie now.
