Rob Zombie has shared the first official teaser for the upcoming reimagining of The Munsters. The film which is being released by Universal Pictures brings the iconic 1960s television family back to our screens with an all-new feature film.
In an interview with EW, Zombie shared details about the new movie. Assuring fans of the original sitcom that it would still have the “spirit” of the series.
“Yeah, it’s 100 percent in the spirit of the show,” the writer-director tells EW. “I didn’t want it to be different. I wanted to totally retain the vibe that it had in the ’60s.”
While the teaser trailer features The Munsters in classic black and white, Rob Zombie admits that trying to sell the concept of a whole film not in color was out of the question. So yes, the new movie will actually be in color.
“I knew that if I went in and demanded ‘This movie’s going to be in black and white or forget it!’ we would not be talking about the Munsters right now, because it would have never happened. I guaran-f—ing-tee it,” says the director. “But what I did do is I made the colors sort of hyper-real. I noticed when the actors were in their makeup and they were just walking around, getting lunch or whatever, they looked like cartoon characters come to life. They were just so insanely colorful. I was like, I have to light the movie in the same fashion. It really seemed at all times like a live action cartoon, which was really exciting.”
