Rob Zombie reboot news The Munsters generated a lot of reaction on social media, and some interesting fan art gave us a glimpse of what the movie could look like. Zombie, who made his filmmaker debut with House of 1000 Corpses in 2003, usually creates characters with a certain type of look and personality. On Instagram, artist Doug McHardlane designed illustrations for the classic sitcom giving members of the monster family a Devils Rejects-like makeover. You can check it out below.
“So it’s been in my head ever since I heard that Rob Zombie had the right to reboot The Munsters,” McHardlane said in the caption. “I hope I’m wrong about what’s going to happen here, but just in case I wasn’t, it’s time stamped here so I can tell you I told you.”
McHardlane wrote this work in March when news of Rob Zombie’s take on The Munsters first broke. At the time, the news was just a rumor with no official confirmation from Zombie or Universal Pictures, where the project was said to be in development. A recent post from Zombie finally confirmed the information with the filmmaker and musician posting the film’s official logo on his Instagram account.
“Watch out for boils and ghouls!” Rumors are true! Zombie said in the Instagram post. “My next film project will be the one I have been pursuing for 20 years! The Munsters! Stay tuned for exciting details as things progress!”
As the rumors that the movie was set turned out to be true, it stands to reason that some of the rumored casting information may also be correct. The original report suggested that two of Zombie’s favorite actors would star Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily Munster and Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman. Dan Roebuck, Jorge Garcia and Richard Brake have also reportedly played major roles, although their characters have not been named. Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson is rumored to be playing a supporting role as well.
Rob zombie is certainly best known for its unique brand of horror films. In 2019, his latest film, 3 from Hell, hit theaters. It featured one of Sid Haig’s last performances as Captain Spaulding while bringing back Sheri Moon Zombie as Baby and Bill Moseley as Otis Driftwood. It was one of the most violent and disturbing Zombie movies to date.
Considering Zombie’s directing style, fans are concerned that his reboot of The Munsters might not be a good fit for the classic series. Most fans of the original series seem to prefer the Monster Family for keeping the family aspects of their story. The good news is that Zombie hasn’t given any indication that this will be another R-rated horror, and given he’s a longtime fan of the original series, it seems more likely that he will. will try to stay more faithful to the series.
Apparently, The Munsters is currently in production in Budapest. A release date has yet to be named for the film, but there are other rumors that the project is destined for an exclusive premiere on NBCUniversal Peacock’s streaming service. Rob Zombie’s The Munsters fan art was posted by Doug McHardlane on Instagram.
