As Rob Zombie continues pre-production for his upcoming reboot of The Munsters, he’s keeping us all well-informed. Today Zombie even shared the finished blueprints for the house of Mockingbird Lane — the main set piece for the adaptation of his passion project, The Munsters. According to Zombie, this set rendition is an exact replica of the house in the original series from 1964.
It’s no secret that The Munsters is a dream project for Zombie. He’s open about his passion for the original series. He’s even on the audio commentary for the film Munster, Go Home, as re-released by Scream Factory.
A month ago the director also shared a brand new Munsters logo to his Instagram, officially cementing his involvement. It’s starting to look like he’s keeping strictly to tradition for his iteration of the classic horror comedy.
This is what Zombie posted along with the blueprints:
“The blueprints are done! Time to start the construction. 🚧 Get ready for the most perfect Munster house since 1964. I want this thing exact.”
We’re excited to see what he’s got in store for this one. No word yet on genre, or even a release date. Keep an eye on Dread Central for more updates as they come in.
Lastly, did you know you can check out the original series in its entirety right now over on Peacock? Surprisingly, The Munsters only had a two-season run. However, they also released a number of direct to television movies, including Munster, Go Home. In 1988 the series was revived as The Munsters Today which lasted for three seasons.
