You may have thought the recent Batman movie was pretty long, but are you prepared for how long the Rob Zombie Munsters movie looks to be?
As reported by Dread Central, actor Butch Patrick (who played the original Eddie Munster), provided some real interesting insight into the runtime for the upcoming Rob Zombie Munsters movie. Patrick provided this detail via a conversation he had with the podcast 20TIMinutes.
There is no confirmation as to what level Patrick’s involvement is regarding the new Munsters movie, but apparently, he is aware of its runtime.
Butch Patrick talking about Rob Zombie Munsters movie
“This movie is going to kill in a really good way. It’s a very long movie, it’s like 2 hours and 38 minutes … but I’ve seen footage and I’ve seen where he’s going with it and it’s going to be great, it really is.”
We have to say that is a little wild. During the time when the Munsters was airing on TV, it was a quick and digestible show that folks and families could watch – but now Zombie wants to turn it into a 2.5 hour feature? We are very curious as to how well that runtime will work for the new Rob Zombie Munsters movie.
What are your thoughts on this supposed runtime? You can also find the interview with actor Butch Patrick below.
At this time we still do not have a trailer for this movie. But you can bet that as soon as the trailer is released, we will make sure folks are aware. At this point in time, there is no telling when the official release of the film will be.
