“House of 1000 Corpses” and “The Devil’s Rejects” auteur Rob Zombie is back with decidedly more family-friendly fare, judging by the teaser he released for his feature film remake of the classic sitcom “The Munsters.”
The teaser is a recreation of the sitcom’s opening credits, along with a colorful twist at the end.
The film, which stars Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman Munster, Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily Munster and Daniel Roebuck as Grandpa, is set to be released simultaneously in theaters by Universal Pictures and streaming on Peacock this year.
Last June, Zombie announced he would be writing and directing the project, telling fans, “Attention Boils and Ghouls! The rumors are true! My next film project will be the one I’ve been chasing for 20 years! THE MUNSTERS! Stay tuned for exciting details as things progress!” In the months since, he has given numerous updates on his Instagram account, including behind-the-scenes photos, as well as location and costume updates.
In a sharp distinction to his previous features, Zombie revealed on Instagram in March that this film will be rated PG. I think it looks like a terrible idea and should be in black and white, but what do I know?
