There’s been talk of a fifth Tremors, and possibly a reboot, since back in 2008. Now, it seems, Universal is readying the ground-shaking remake.
Don Michael Paul, who helmed both Lake Placid: The Final Chapter and Jarhead 2: Field of Fire, revealed on his blog that he’s already set to get behind the camera for a modern day Tremors.
After I finish up “Company Of Heroes: The Fourth Reich” I will be headed to Johannesburg, South Africa to reboot the “Tremors” franchise for Universal. Big year ahead and I’m excited to keep it going with the support of all you genre movie lovers out there.
I’ve never been anti-remake, although I prefer one that attempts something new. Tremors is sort of a perfect franchise to reboot, as the sequels really trailed off into crap, and with new technology, a revamp could be just what the doctor ordered.
The franchise is surprisingly nearing its 25th anniversary as it was released back in 1990 under the direction of Ron Underwood. In it, natives of a small isolated town – starring Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward and Finn Carter – defend themselves against strange underground creatures which are killing them one by one.
