Like the series on which it is based, the upcoming film will focus on a family of friendly monsters as they move from Transylvania and learn to adjust to life in the American suburbs.

The director has been keeping his fans in the loop with regular updates on the set construction over the past few months, from blueprints and an empty lot to the finished neighbourhood at the end of last month.

The Munsters was already revived twice before to limited success. In the late-'80s and early-'90s, a revival series titled The Munsters Today aired for three seasons while in 2012 NBC aired the pilot for a show called Mockingbird Lane that was never picked up for a series order.
