Burt Gummer will be back… next year.
We’ve been awaiting details on the release plan for director Don Michael Paul’s Tremors 6, and we’re happy to report today that we now know when to expect the return of those lovable Graboids (possibly icy ones!). Star Michael “Burt Gummer” Gross himself broke the news over on Facebook today, revealing that Universal will be releasing the film on January 30, 2018!
From what we gather, it’s going direct to home video.
In the new film…
Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) and his son Travis Welker (Jamie Kennedy) find themselves up to their ears in Graboids and Ass-Blasters when they head to Canada to investigate a series of deadly giant-worm attacks. Arriving at a remote research facility in the artic tundra, Burt begins to suspect that Graboids are secretly being weaponized, but before he can prove his theory, he is sidelined by Graboid venom. With just 48 hours to live, the only hope is to create an antidote from fresh venom — but to do that, someone will have to figure out how to milk a Graboid!
Gross and Kennedy are joined by franchise newcomers Tanya van Graan (Death Race: Inferno, Zulu), Rob van Vuuren (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom) and Greg Kriek (Momentum).
John Whelpley (Tremors 5: Bloodlines) wrote the script.
