Some really interesting news coming in for the television remake of the classic show “The Munsters”. A big name director is getting behind the project guns blazing, and we have to admit we’ve never been more curious. Read on for the skinny.
According to Deadline NBC’s “The Munsters” will be brought to you by The Bryans. X-Men and Superman Returns helmer Bryan Singer is finalizing a deal to direct and executive produce Bryan Fuller’s reboot of the 1960s comedy, which recently received a pilot order by NBC.
Universal Television is producing the project, described as an imaginative reinvention of “The Munsters” as a visually spectacular one-hour drama. Singer, who has been interested in the project since before it was greenlit by NBC two weeks ago, will executive produce with Fuller.
After originally developing “The Munsters” last season, Fuller redeveloped it with NBC’s new executive team this summer and delivered his new script at the beginning of this month. Like Fuller’s previous series, “Pushing Daisies”, “The Munsters” calls for striking visuals mixed with all the classic “Munsters” archetypes, and NBC had been looking for a top director to create the world of “The Munsters” circa 2011.
