The reboot of The Munsters on the big screen is set to bring the iconic 60s family to a new generation.
The Munsters is an iconic part of the American cultural landscape, despite only running for two seasons on television between 1964 and 1966 and producing a handful of feature films thereafter.
Rebooted every few years, most recently by Bryan Fuller in 2012’s failed pilot Mockingbird Lane, which starred Eddie Izzard as Grandpa, now Halloween director Rob Zombie is taking the reigns to reimagine the frightening family for the 21st century.
Not that it looks as though things have changed that much. In a behind the scenes glimpse posted on his Instagram page, Zombie revealed the first official photograph of Jeff Daniel Phillips, who has the unenviable task of following Fred Gwynne’s as genial giant Herman Munster.
Joining him are Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily, Daniel Roebuck as Grandpa, Evan Rachel Wood as Marilyn and Jacob Tremblay as Eddie.
Completing the ensemble will be Sylvester McCoy as Igor, the Munsters’ manservant and Richard Brake as Dr Henry Augustus Wolfgang.
No release date has yet been set, but we’d place a pretty firm bet on October.
