While the production is swimming slower along his upcoming film adaptation, The Munsters helmer Rob Zombie celebrates the classic comedy series. Back in 1964, the beloved monster family first graced our television screens and created a franchise with a large, ever-growing fan base that still enjoys the show to this day. As perhaps the show’s biggest fan of all, Zombie excitedly posted on Instagram about his anniversary.
Zombie’s Instagram post includes a photo of the original cast. Marking of the official account for The Munsters along with actor Butch Patrick, Zombie says in the caption “Happy Anniversary two The Munsters! The biggest show ever premiered today, September 24, 1964! “
It’s well known that Rob Zombie is on board to develop his own The Munsters movie. After months of rumors, he confirmed in June that he was teaming up with Universal to restart the franchise with a brand new movie. At the time, he also unveiled the official logo, the first sign that he was planning a faithful adaptation of the original TV series. Since then, Zombie has made it very clear how much he goes for accuracy with this project.
“The crew is working hard to bring 1313 back to life,” Zombie told his supporters. “As you can see, the iconic house is starting to emerge. This talented group of carpenters and painters are trying to recreate every little detail perfectly. Stay tuned for more news.”
First, Zombie 1313 Mockingbird Lane, the house that serves as the Munster family’s home, has been rebuilt from scratch. The house is modeled exactly according to how the house appeared in the original TV series. He has used some more of the universal budget money to have the entire Mockingbird Lane rebuilt, and several of the neighboring houses on the street have already been erected. Production seems to be going pretty fast for Zombie, though it’s still unclear when the shooting will start.
Meanwhile, Rob has also not yet revealed the cast of the film, at least officially. There have been rumored names attached to the cast, which include Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily Munster and Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman. Richard Brake and Daniel Roebuck also rumored to be linked in lead roles, but their characters were not named. All four appear regularly in Zombie’s movies, so these names would definitely make sense to see in the movie.
Jorge Garcia (Lost) and Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson are also set to appear in undisclosed roles according to the unconfirmed rumors. Doctor Who actor Sylvester McCoy has also teased that he would star in a film directed by Rob Zombie, which was shot in Budapest, which could have been a reference to a role in the project. In any case, all we know so far is that exact copies of the sets are currently being built, and Zombie has not yet officially announced its cast.
Words are The Munsters as directed by Rob Zombie will have a day-and-date release in theaters and on NBCUniversal’s streaming service Peacock. Meanwhile, fans can go back and visit the classic comedy series, which has now entertained millions of fans for almost five decades. You can find classic sections of The Munsters streaming free on peacock.
