Rob Zombie continues to push the envelope with his feature film reboot of The Munsters TV show.
The outlandish filmmaker/musician this week announced the latest addition to the cast of his upcoming film, and dropped a photo of the character in costume. Check out the image, courtesy of screenrant.com, on this page.
Catherine Schell–who has been semi-retired from acting since the 1990s–will return as Zoya Krupp, an undefined role in The Munsters. And, judging from the costume and makeup she wears in the photo, the role will be one not seen in the original 1960s TV series.
Schell–who initially made her mark in British film and TV productions in the 1960s–may be remembered as Nancy, the “Bond girl” in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969); as Lady Claudine Litton in The Return of the Pink Panther (1975); as Countess Scarlioni in the Doctor Who series; as Maya in Space: 1999 (1976); or as the Grand Duchess Valeria in the BBC One/Netflix series Dracula (2000).
Zombie’s The Munsters–which will debut in theaters and on Peacock on an unannounced date–also stars Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman, Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily, Daniel Roebuck as Grandpa, Richard Brake as Dr. Henry Augustus Wolfgang and Sylvester McCoy as Igor.
The other two major characters from the TV show–Marilyn and Eddie–reportedly will appear in the reboot, but have yet to be cast.
The Munsters–which ran for 70 episodes on CBS from 1964-1965–starred Fred Gwynne as Herman, Yvonne De Carlo as Lily and Al Lewis as Grandpa, with Butch Patrick as Eddie and Beverley Owen (later replaced by Pat Priest) as Marilyn.
