That’s right folks, according to: Variety.
The horror comedy, ‘Tremors’ which brought together amazing actors who at the time were both awesome, ‘b’ movie actors, or in the prime of their a-list career, has been entertaining and scarrying audiences all over the world for almost 30 years now!
We have seen two of the top 5 actors in the movie, ‘Fred Ward’ (Road Trip) & Michael Gross (Sometimes They Come Back… Again) go on to fight graboids all over the planet (and in Michael Gross’s case… in time!) What with Mr. Ward and Mr. Gross having fought Graboids in their character’s home town, as well as in South America, and for Michael Gross, playing his ancestor who fought them in Perfection in the 19th Century!
Well if you liked those movies, you are going to love this! For years it has been hoped for that Kevin Bacon (Friday The 13th) would come back and reprise his role as Val McKee from the first movie, and now we have it!
That’s right folks! It looks like Syfy has picked up the pilot for the new TV series starring Kevin Bacon!
“I just got to thinking, where would this guy end up after 25 years? Andrew Miller has a fantastic take on it and we hope to create a show that will be fun and scary for fans of the movie and folks that have yet to discover it. Let’s kick some Graboid ass!” – A quote from Kevin Bacon about reprising his role as Val McKee in Tremors the TV series!
This new series will tell the story of what happened to Val after 25 years, and how he has come back to his home town and is fighting the same monsters that made him famous in the first place!
So far what we can tell is that there is a rumor that not only is Val coming back to the screen, but it looks like we may have a chance to see what his old pal, ‘Earl’ (played by Fred Ward) is going to be up to as well!
If you’re like me then you really can’t wait, but hopefully this trailer from the original movie will help get you going!
