Munsters, phone home?
Rob Zombie this week took to Instagram to announce the latest addition to his feature reboot of The Munsters, and this time, it’s a true veteran of the world of fantasy and horror: Dee Wallace. Check out Zombie’s Instagram post–courtesy of collider.com–on this page.

Wallace–well known to fans for her roles in E.T. the Extra–Terrestrial, 2007’s Halloween, Cujo, The Hills Have Eyes and Critters–will be “the voice of Good Morning, Transylvania–Transylvania’s second-favorite morning show,” according to Zombie. “Soon slipping to third if they don’t update their format.”
Wallace joins the previously announced Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman, Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily, Daniel Roebuck as Grandpa, Richard Brake as Dr. Henry Augustus Wolfgang, Jorge Garcia as Floop, Sylvester McCoy as Igor, Catherine Schell as Zoya Krupp and Cassandra Peterson (Elvira’s alter-ego) as real estate agent Barbara Carr.
There’s still no word on a premiere date for the PG-rated reboot, but the film reportedly will get a day-and-date release in theaters and on Peacock. Stay tuned for confirmation on that.
The movie draws inspiration from The Munsters TV show–which ran on CBS from 1964-1965–which starred Fred Gwynne as Herman, Yvonne De Carlo as Lily and Al Lewis as Grandpa, with Butch Patrick as son Eddie and Beverley Owen (later replaced by Pat Priest) as niece Marilyn.
