It was reported last month (by Murphy’s Multiverse) that Rob Zombie would be getting back behind the camera for this next horror project, a new interpretation of The Munsters, which would film this coming May in Budapest.
From what I’m hearing, and I have not been able to confirm this, The Munsters is actually going to be a Peacock original/exclusive that will open day-and-date in theaters via Universal Pictures/UPHE, similar to what Warner Bros. is doing with HBO Max. It’s a great way to strengthen the return on a larger budgeted risk like The Munsters, which is reportedly in the $30M-$40M range.
Apparently Rob is a hardcore Munsters fan, so this is ‘labor of love’ territory. I’m curious to see what he does with it, too. Admittedly, I’m more of an Addams Family guy, but I don’t scorn the other aesthetic, either. Besides: they had an admittedly sweet car. I think I had that car as a Matchbox or Hot Wheels as a kid, although I may be misremembering it.
