    Rob Zombie Making A New Munsters Film

    This has been rumored for a while but now it is confirmed.

    "Rob Zombie has confirmed speculation that he will next direct a feature version of The Munsters. The musician/director confirmed the news on his personal Instagram page this afternoon, posting a logo for the film and saying, "Attention Boils and Ghouls! The rumors are true! My next film project will be the one I've been chasing for 20 years! THE MUNSTERS! Stay tuned for exciting details as things progress!" Zombie has been trying to get this off the ground for years and years, and reports from Murphy's Multiverse and Bloody Disgusting as of late place Sheri Moon Zombie and Jeff Daniel Phillips as playing Lily and Herman Munster in the film, with the cast also including Richard Brake, Dan Roebuck, Jorge Garcia and Cassandra (Elvira) Peterson.

    Hoping it's sleazy, subversive and rated R.
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

    I wish they'd stop attempting to remake: The Munsters, Three Stooges, Laurel & Hardy, Little Rascals, etc. This will be even worse than usual because it just won't be a flat dud, it's going to be an obnoxious, white trash train wreck. It's humor is in the absurdity of it's wholesomeness.

    I'm at once happy and sad to see Cassandra Peterson's name in the cast. I hope she gets paid nicely.

    The possibilities are endless:

    The normal one (whatever her name is ) could be a drug addict because she can't relate to the rest of them.
    Eddie could be a chronic leg humper.
    Grampa could be eyeing little children with bad intent. (Bonus if you know what song that came from).
    Herman could have Daddy issues.
    Lily could be a ruthless, heartless bitch, making Herman feel castrated.
    Their house could be a trailer.

    Don't forget the laugh track ala "I Love Mallory".

    Not a Rob Zombie fan so I wouldn't have high hopes, though I suppose if the right approach is taken, it could work. Anyone seen THE BANANA SPLITS MOVIE? I haven't, but I grew up watching the TV show and am intrigued by the fact they made a horror film around it. Could be fun, could be incredibly silly, I don't know. I've considered making a blind buy. (I vaguely recall liking the same director's LEVEL 16.)
    VHS will never die!
