The Tin Can Man originally appeared in episode seven of The Munsters as Eddie's science fair project turned joke-telling robot.

While Patrick's involvement with the film has been confirmed, there's still the question of whether Eddie, the character he played nearly six decades ago, will make an appearance in the movie.

Other cast members of the upcoming adaptation include Richard Brake, Sylvester McCoy, Jorge Garcia, Catherine Schell, Cassandra "Elvira" Peterson and more.

There is currently no known release date for the reboot.
