    ^I just did a quick search and the prosthetic for Herman's forehead and brow has already been created. It actually looks really good, and would seem to indicate that an actor has already been cast.

    There are also postings of the blueprint for the house (looks like an exact replica of the original), some costume designs for Lily & Herman's sleepwear, a wig for Grandpa, and a location site:

    Looks like a good homage thus far, hopefully more successful than Burton's Dark Shadows.

    I learned a long time ago to never say, "It couldn't be any worse", so I'll just bite my tongue and wait it out.

    I have two strong opinions on Rob Zombie. As a production artist, I think the man is incredible. He understands how to create imaginative and well thought out images for his projects. So seeing his design sensibilities for the Munsters and noting how good they look is not a surprise.

    But as a writer, that guy can't string two sentences together. All his characters talk EXACTLY the same way. They're all foul mouthed and act like they flunked out of the same high school together. And his idea of progressive film making is to stick your face in something raunchy which is not exactly original. So he's a very one note director. I don't have to think about what he's going to do with the Munsters. They will all have an aesthetic value to them we can all appreciate. But their characters will be the very anthesis of what we know them to be, because he'll want to drown them in dark humor with distasteful banter.

    Did you cut and paste that directly from my brain?

    FWIW: I've read several articles, some of them said that there was no confirmation as to whether or not Zombie will be writing, some of them claim that he will be writing (such as the one I posted above).

    From Deadline:

    "Zombie directed two Halloween reboot films in the 2000s and most recently wrote and helmed 3 from Hell and 31. He launched his feature filmmaking career with House of 1000 Corpses (2003) and followed that up with The Devil’s Rejects two years later. He wrote and directed both but didn’t say whether he plans to write The Munsters as well."
