Avowed Munsters fan, Rob Zombie, will direct an upcoming version of television’s most beloved monster family for Universal.
Zombie took to Instagram to share the news with the world, saying that the project has one that he has “…been chasing for 20 years!”
Like the original 1964 TV series (and subsequent TV Movies over the years), it doesn’t look like the film will get a theatrical release, as it is set up at Universal Studios’ 1440 Entertainment home entertainment division. A streaming debut on Peacock or another streaming service is the most likely route for the new version of Herman, Lily, Eddie, Marilyn, and of course, Grandpa.
Stay tuned for casting news and more details as they are announced.
