Emily Tremaine (“Vinyl”), Megan Ketch (“American Gothic”) and Evil Dead‘s Shiloh Fernandez are set to star alongside Kevin Bacon in the Syfy pilot “Tremors”, a reboot of the 1990 cult classic film, with original star Bacon reprising his role, Deadline reports.
In the “Tremors” follow-up, written by Andrew Miller and to be directed by Cube and Splice‘s Vincenzo Natali, the killer Graboid worms that nearly destroyed Perfection, NV, 25 years ago are back, and the town’s only hope for survival is Valentine McKee (Bacon), who beat them once. But to do it again he’ll have to overcome age, alcohol and a delusional hero complex.
Ketch will play Mindy Sterngood, a charismatic young doctor with an eyebrow-raising fixation on the much-older Val, who saved her from a Graboid at age 9. But Mindy is hiding something that makes her an unanticipated threat: Compelling as she is, more cunning is her mask.
Fernandez, pictured above, will play Nico Garza, who has been killing time in Perfection, working in Earl’s Graboid Waste Gobbling company, waiting for the right moment to split. The last thing he wants is to turn out like Val, who’s stayed stuck in nowheresville all these years.
Tremaine, below, will play the role of Emily McKee, the whip-smart daughter of Val (Bacon) with a bright future ahead of her. She is newly graduated and stops by Perfection to visit her dad, but quality time with him is the standard disappointment, as Emily sinks further into the understanding that he’ll never change.
