Here’s the Logo for Rob Zombie’s The Munsters
Production on Rob Zombie’s adaptation of The Munsters is underway, and the rockstar-turned-filmmaker continues to share lots of behind-the-scenes shit on social media.
Following his reveal of the cast and the costume designs, Zombie has now posted a pic of his director’s chair, which includes our first look at the movie’s official logo.
(And by “official,” I mean “official for now.” This could end up being the final logo. If Universal’s marketing department tests the logo and it doesn’t do well, they could change it. I don’t think they will because it’s not very far off from the original logo from the television show. But they could.)
You can view the new logo below, along with the original logo, for the sake of comparison.
The Munsters will star Jeff Daniel Phillips, who has had a role in every Zombie flick since Halloween II, as Herman Munster, while Zombie’s wife, Sheri Moon Zombie, takes on the role of Lily Munster. Dan Roebuck, another Zombie regular, plays Grandpa Munster. Richard Brake, yet ANOTHER member Rob Zombie’s usual ensemble, is also said to be in the movie, although who he’s playing remains a mystery. Lost‘s Jorge Garcia and Cassandra Peterson, a.k.a. Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, are also reportedly in the flick in as-yet unspecified roles.
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.
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.
