Rob Zombie continues to tease fans with glimpses of and updates about his upcoming reboot of “The Munsters.” Today, Zombie announced that he would be reuniting with Dee Wallace, who has previously starred in Zombie’s films Halloween, Lords of Salem, and 3 from Hell.
“Dee is the voice of GOOD MORNING TRANSYLVANIA! Transylvania’s 2nd favorite morning show… soon slipping to 3rd if they don’t update their format.” Zombie stated on social media.
Wallace has starred in over 127 films and series. She’s known for her roles in the horror classics such as the 1983’s adaptation of Stephen King’s Cujo, the werewolf classic The Howling, and Critters, as well as playing the mother in Steven Spielberg’s E.T.
Jeff Daniel Phillips, who appears in many of Zombie’s projects, is playing Herman Munster. Sheri Moon Zombie is starring as Lily Munster, and Daniel Roebuck will play Grandpa Munster. Richard Brake (31, 3 from Hell), another Zombie favorite, is playing Dr. Henry Augustus Wolfgang. Catherine Schell, Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson and Jorge Garcia will star as well.
Zombie, who is directing, has yet to announce the release date, but we can’t wait to see it. While there have been rumors that the movie may be released as a Peacock Original, it has not been confirmed.
If you’ve never seen the family-friendly series, now’s your chance. “The Musters,” which originally ran from 1964 to 1966, is currently streaming on Peacock.
