Rob Zombie Shoots Down Rumors That The Munsters‘s Cost $40 Million: “F***, I Wish I Had That Kind of Budget”
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Rob Zombie‘s upcoming reboot of horror-comedy show The Munsters would be released on Netflix and not NBC’s streaming service Peacock, which many assumed would be the case. Now, Rob has set the record straight — and has shot down rumors that the movie had a $40 million budget.
Posting to his Facebook, Rob said the following:
“How the hell did everyone get the idea that The Munsters cost 40 millions dollars? Fuck, I wish I had that kind of budget.
“To put a little perspective on it all if you add up the budgets of Halloween 2, The Lords of Salem, 31, 3 From Hell and The Munsters all together it wouldn’t even add up to 30 million.
“Also the movie was never going to theaters or Peacock or Paramount. It was always being made for Netflix which is fine since it is the largest of the streaming services. This was done way before I ever got involved in the project. I have no control or say over this type of stuff. This is a Universal deal.
“But the internet loves to invent rumors which somehow turns to facts so the fans can get all bend out of shape.
“None of this actually matters but thought you might like the real story.”
There you go — all of your ideas that Rob Zombie’s sitting on some fat pile of cash are unfounded. Dude goes indie.
