WAYANS REDO THE MUNSTERS
'The Munsters' are coming to the big screen courtesy of the Wayans brothers.
Keenen Ivory, Marlon and Shawn Wayans have struck a deal with Universal Pictures to take the 1960s television show about a family of friendly monsters who never quite get why people react in terror to them and give it a 21st century makeover.
The deal calls for the three Wayanses to write the screenplay as well as produce along with Rick Alvarez through Wayans Bros. Prods. There is a possibility that Keenen Ivory Wayans would direct, though no deal is in the works without a finished script. 'The Munsters' aired on CBS from 1964-66. The Wayans version will stay true to the original characters, but will place them in a contemporary setting.'
