Portia De Rossi Gets Her Spook On With Munsters Re-Boot

Portia De Rossi -- With Ellen -- Is Mama Munster

It's a monster Munster mash!!

Portia de Rossi — of the late and great Arrested Development — just inked a deal with NBC to star as Lily Munster in their remake of the classic ‘60s horror/comedy.

We bet she and Ellen are having SUPER celebratory cuddles in their $18 mil Beverly Hills mansion right now, LOLz!!

Munsters 2.0 will actually be titled Mockingbird Lane.

Show runner Bryan Fuller and director Bryan Singer promise this will be a darker and more macabre version than your parents watched on TV!!

Portia’s matriarchal Munster was originally meant to be played by Mariana Klaveno of True Blood infamy — but she couldn’t get released from the contract on her Marc Cherry Hallmark pilot!

Yup! The same Mark Cherry entangled in that lengthy legal drama with Nicollette Sheridan over her Desperate Housewives departure!!

Portia’s co-stars on Mockingbird Lane include Jerry O’Connell and Eddie Izzard, who will play Herman and Grandpa Munster respectively.

We LOVE the cast so far and we’re really curious to see where NBC ultimately goes with this idea!!

The remake of the black & white laugh-track comedy about a family of monsters will be written

Back in November, SyFy was promoting their film Triassic Attack, which starred The Scorpion King's Steven Brand.

Wow, SyFy! You've come a long way, bbs!

Other cast members attached to the new SyFy film include Donald Sutherland and Eddie Izzard. Pret-ty impressive cast!

The two-part film is slated to premiere in early 2012.

Congratulations, SyFy! This is an ambitious project.

And don't worry…if things don't work out as planned with Treasure Island, we're sure there are plenty of folks out there just itching to see Mega Shark Vs. Squidalien BeastMonster. LOLz.

Do U trust SyFy with Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale?
