You want weird timing, I’ll give you weird timing.
Exactly one year ago today Kevin Bacon took to Twitter to do an AMA where he confirmed that a Tremors television series was in development. Today, he participated in a reddit AMA to promote his new Amazon show, “I Love Dick”, where he firmed up that it’s still an active project.
When asked by a fan if he would you like to see, and/or star in a Tremors remake, he replied:
“we are working on that!”
The initial news reported was that Bacon, who played “Valentine McKee” in Ron Underwood’s 1990 classic, would be acting as executive producer and would also be starring in the series. In the film, natives of a small isolated town defend themselves against strange underground creatures which are killing them one by one.
Meanwhile, a sixth Tremors film is coming to VOD January 30, 2018, via Universal Home Entertainment. Franchise star Michael “Burt Gummer” Gross is returning once again.
Waiting on this like…
