According to GeekTyrant, musician and director Rob Zombie announced he would be directing a feature-length film adaptation of the 1960s sitcom The Munsters. He is a big fan of the original series. Peacock is looking to produce a film that will head directly to the streaming service. Two of Zombie’s frequent collaborators, Sheri Moon Zombie (his wife) and Jeff Daniel Phillips, will join the project as Lily Munster and Herman Munster, respectively.
The choice of Zombie as a directing is a surprising one, to say the least. His best-known movies are gruesome horror flicks like House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects. The Munsters, on the other hand, is a family-friendly sitcom about creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky families that isn’t The Addams Family. The not-so-original series aired on CBS for two seasons in the mid-1960s. Several made-for-TV movies soon followed. In the late 1980s came the revival series called The Munsters Today. This one aired in syndication for three seasons. In 2012, Bryan Fuller (Dead Like Me, Hannibal) developed a TV special titled Mockingbird Lane.
