the munsters The Munsters: Remake?

Wow, good news today for my fellow horror geeks! Entertainment Weekly has announced that Bryan Fuller, the genius behind the short-lived television series Pushing Daisies, is developing a modern-day remake of the classic TV-series, The Munsters.

That’s not all! The big rumor going around is that GeekPeeks favorite, Guillermo Del Toro, is playing a role in the reboot. This isn’t that big of a surprise after he recently announced that he was going to play a key role in developing various television projects.

Before anyone get’s their panties in a bunch about Hollywood remaking another classic TV series, keep in mind that Fuller and Del Toro are no strangers to the horror/comedy genre. Anyone who’s seen Pushing Daisies or the Hellboy films knows that these two guys know how to be creepy while still keeping it light and funny. As a big fan of the original series, I have to admit that I’m a little skeptical, but knowing these two guys are involved puts me at ease. Thoughts???
