While we continue waiting for a release date (is the film Netflix-bound?), Rob Zombie has shared some behind the scenes footage from the set of The Munsters over on Instagram, the clip featuring Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman Munster and Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily Munster. They’re hanging out with another character from the classic television series, Uncle Gilbert!

Uncle Gilbert, who of course happens to look a whole lot like the Creature from the Black Lagoon, is a Munster relative, and it would appear he’ll be seen in Zombie’s movie.

Zombie writes, “Look who dropped by THE MUNSTERS set today to say hello! None other than good old UNCLE GILBERT! Boy am I glad I had a camera and captured the moment.”

“He hung around until lunch, ate some seaweed then headed back to the airport. That fish is always on the move,” Zombie’s Instagram post this week continues.

The cast also includes Daniel Roebuck as Grandpa Munster.

Richard Brake (31, 3 from Hell) is playing Dr. Henry Augustus Wolfgang. Catherine Schell (“Space: 1999,” The Return of the Pink Panther) is playing “Zoya Krupp the gypsy queen.”

Dee Wallace, Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson and Jorge Garcia will also star, with original “The Munsters” actress Pat Priest also making an appearance in Zombie’s new movie.

If you want to revisit the original series, “The Munsters” is streaming on Peacock. That series ran for just two seasons between 1964 and 1966, spawning several feature films and a sequel television series titled “The Munsters Today” (1988 – 1991). Most recently, Bryan Fuller’s “Mockingbird Lane” reimagined the series for NBC, but never made it past a pilot episode.
