Rob Zombie Shares Munsters Movie Costume Designs
Rob Zombie is currently on a tear with regards to sharing pre-production materials for his upcoming movie adaptation of The Munsters. Earlier this week, he took to social media to post the blueprints for the monstrous (Munstrous?) family’s famous home, 1313 Mockingbird Lane; now the singer/filmmaker has shared costume designs for the Munsters’ patriarch and matriarch, Herman and Lily Munster.
Specifically, he’s shared costume designs for those characters’ sleepwear. Herman’s design appears to be quite loyal to that of the original show; Zombie let himself get a little more adventurous with Lily’s nightgown. Which is to say, he made it black instead of white.
You can check out the designs below.
Rob Zombie’s The Munsters will likely be out in 2022, possibly as a day-and-date release (i.e. on the same day) in theaters and via Peacock, NBCUniversal’s streaming platform. It’s something of a dream project for Zombie, who, as of 2010, had allegedly seen every episode of the original series at least seventeen times.
Still-unconfirmed rumors say that Jeff Daniel Phillips, who has had a role in every Zombie flick since Halloween II, will play Herman Munster, while Zombie’s wife, Sheri Moon Zombie, takes on the role of Lily Munster. Two other regular Zombie players, Richard Brake and Dan Roebuck, are also rumored to be playing unspecified roles, as are Lost‘s Jorge Garcia and Cassandra Peterson, a.k.a. Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
The budget is said to be between $30-$40 million. Assuming that’s the case, it will be Zombie’s largest-budgeted movie to date, following the Halloweens, which reportedly cost $15,000,000 each.
Zombie’s most recent film, 3 From Hell, came out in 2019. It was the third and final installment in the Firefly trilogy, which began with House of 1000 Corpses (2003), continued with The Devil’s Rejects (2005), and starred Sheri Moon Zombie, Bill Moseley, Richard Brake and Sid Haig.
