In case you've never seen The Munsters, here is a little taste of what the show was.
They're not your ordinary family, except for Marilyn of course. The Munsters was a sitcom that ran from 1964 to 1966. The purpose of the show was to poke fun at the idea of famous iconic monsters such as the Frankenstein monster, Dracula, the Wolf Man, and others acting as one big happy family in the normal world we live in. The show was a cult hit and I think now is the time to bring it back to life (pun intended.) Here are my casting choices to play the Munster family in a modern day film version!
I have two choices for the goofy Frankenstein monster of a dad.
Now to find someone to take on the mantle of the beautiful, stay at home mom of your nightmares:
Helena Bonham Carter
He's the back bone to the family, known for being old and grouchy but also loving at the same time. Here's who I think should play the grandfather who might also suck your blood!
Now if you're a fan of Parks and Recreation, then you know how brilliant Nick Offerman is with his comedic timing. He could add that extra piz azz to the film with his quick one liners and hilarious facial expressions. He even somewhat resembles a young Al Lewis.
Strangely, Marilyn was the "odd" one out in her family due to her not looking like a creature of the night. Here are my two choices for the Munster family's niece!
Chloe Grace Moretz
Little Eddie Munster is a smaller and less hairy version of the iconic character the Wolf Man. Here is my choice for who should play the little wolf boy on the big screen!
Known for a couple small comedy roles, Jackson is on the rise. This kid is hilarious and can definitely bring out Eddie's mischievous side brilliantly!
Tim Burton In The Director's Chair
If this film were to ever happen, then it has Tim Burton's name all over it. The Munsters is the perfect balance of comedy in a spooky way with a Gothic tone, which lines right up with Tim's style. Tim Burton is known for taking elements from his favorite, classic, monster movies and adding a touch of comedy with a new twist to them. The Munsters would be a perfect fit for the director's dark tone.
