Take a peek at this powder keg of an Instagram post from Rob Zombie.
Horror King Rob Zombie is hard at work developing a brand new update of The Munsters, the classic NBC sitcom about an adorable clan of monsters. The director has been hard at work on the upcoming production in Hungary since this past summer, and we’ve been privy to a ton of updates. As The Munsters progressed from pre-production towards camera-time, updates have becoming more plentiful!
Today the goth-rocker turned moviemaker is back on Instagram to share the latest production update. This time he’s unveiled something a little bit more… “shocking”. Feast your eyes upon the prop departments newest creation: a goddamn electric-chair! This thing looks cool as hell. I wonder if it works.
Check out Zombie’s latest post for The Munsters right here:
Back in the 1980s, they resurfaced as The Munsters Today—the longest-running series in the property’s history. In 2012 NBC gave a reboot a try with Bryan Fuller at the helm. While the pilot for Mockingbird Lane has its fans, it wasn’t enough for the network to push the iteration forward as a series.
A notorious Munsters fan, Zombie has been chasing this film adaptation for 20-some-odd years, according to the first Instagram post he shared on the subject. The new Rob Zombie film is likely to hit the streaming service Peacock sometime next year. We’re still unsure if the project will be seen theatrically. Keep an eye on Dread Central for more updates as they come in.
