MTV News is reporting that the long gestating “Munsters” remake from the Wayans Bros is finally close to seeing daylight.
Shawn Wayans and the team behind “Scary Movie” and “Little Man” are currently finalizing work on their third draft of the script.
“I’m almost ready. It’s almost ready to be shot,” Wayans said during a late night shoot on his newest film, the musical spoof “Dance Flick.” “We had to finish this movie and now we’re going through our third polish on ‘The Munsters.’”
The Wayans first announced their involvement in the project four years ago, but Shawn says the film’s basic format hasn’t really changed all that much in the four years since: they are still placing the family in modern times and they still don’t have any plans to star.
“If we do anything, maybe we’ll do a cameo, but we’re not gonna make The Munsters black all of a sudden,” Wayans laughed. “They’re gonna be green, white people just like they were in the TV show. Their characters are still who they were in the ‘50s. It’s just in modern day.”
