Founding member of the heavy metal band White Zombie and a filmmaker, Rob Zombie has recently announced on his Instagram page that his next film project will be ‘The Munsters,’ which he has been chasing after for 20 years as a known big fan. This new screen project will be a modern adaptation of the 1960s classic horror-themed comedy television show.
As you may know, apart from his musical success Rob Zombie has been known for his interest in horror films since he was growing up and he directed several horror films to this day.

He then directed a remake of the 1978s horror classic ‘Halloween’ in 2007 with the same name, which was his highest-grossing film. He then began working on a film in 2014 named ’31,’ and the film premiered at Sundance Film Festival in 2016. Currently, his primary focus is known to be filmmaking.
As seen in his recent Instagram post, Zombie has confirmed the rumors that he is going to be the director of the film ‘The Munsters,’ which he is a huge fan of and has been after for 20 years. He even named his song ‘Dragula’ after the car the Munsters owned and made a commentary track for the Bluray release of the film. He promised more exciting details to be revealed soon at the end of his post.
