The film follows a family of benign monsters who relocate from Transylvania to the American suburbs. The movie also stars Doctor Who and Hobbit actor Sylvester McCoywho is playing Igor, “the faithful servant of the family,” Dee WallaceElvira actress Cassandra Peterson as a real estate agent, and Tomas Boykin as Lily Munster’s werewolf brother, Lester.
There actually seems to be quite a bit of hype for this movie. I’m personally looking forward to it seeing what Zombie has in store for it. The guy, who is known for making hardcore R-rated horror movies, is making a PG-rated family film with The Munstersand I’ll be there to watch it.
I’m not the biggest Rob Zombie fan, but I loved The Munstersand Zombie may have made a good film. We’ll just have to wait and see.
When previously talking about the film, Roebuck said, “I really hope audiences walk away feeling entertained and laughing. That’s all we really hope for making any movie, well, unless it’s a drama. If all goes well and people really like, maybe we’ll get the chance to do it again. I just hope people realize that they’ll have a whole new version of The Munsters that can live and co-exist side-by-side with the original version of The Munsters. No one wants to replace it, we all love it so much. We just want to shine a spotlight on it with our approach which I think is the best way to look at it.”
The movie is set up at Universal Studios’ 1440 Entertainment division, and it will likely go directly to streaming.
