Tremors TV Show: Actor Kevin Bacon Teases New Series
Tremors, the TV show, is coming next year, and Mr. Kevin Bacon will reprise his role of Valentine “Val” McKee. Universal Cable Productions have announced that Tremors, the 1990 cult western horror flick, will once more return to TV, but this time around they are hoping it will be a monster hit.
Could Tremors, the TV show, be airing on The CW? According to rumors, the answer is yes. This week, actor Kevin Bacon took to Instagram where he shared a picture of himself on the set of Tremors with his very pregnant wife, Kyra Sedgwick.
The photo was taken 26 years ago when the Cop Car star was somewhere in the California desert filming the western monster film. Mr. Bacon used the caption to make a big announcement – Tremors, the movie, will become a TV show – again. The A Few Good Men actor wrote:
Me and @kyrasedgwick 9 months pregnant 26 years ago on the #Tremors set. Might be time to head back to Perfection.
Universal Cable Productions and Blumhouse Productions have confirmed that they are indeed working on the Tremors TV reboot. It is rumored that the series might land on The CW because the script is being handled by The Secret Circle creator Andrew Miller, who already works on the network and is known for many action/horror series. Bacon is set to executive produce and will reprise his role of Valentine “Val” McKee, it is not known if the original stars including Fred Ward, Finn Carter, Michael Gross and Reba McEntire will appear in the show.
Tremors, which was released in 1990 was produced and written by Brent Maddock and S. S. Wilson, and followed the story of Val, and Earl Basset played by Ward, two handymen working in Perfection, Nevada, who are forced to save themselves and few residents from man-eating killer worms called graboids.
The movie was turned into a franchise with four direct-to-video sequels: Tremors 2: Aftershocks; Tremors 3: Back to Perfection; a series prequel, Tremors 4: The Legend Begins; and finally Tremors 5: Bloodlines and a short-lived SyFy television series. Recently, Bacon indicated that he was eager to play Val, again, telling VICE Talks Film:
“It’s a surprisingly good movie, I remember it being a little more sillier than it is,[Valentine is] the only character that I’ve ever done that I’m interested in revisiting 25 years on.Because I look at the guy and he’s stuck in this town with this other guy, he’s got all these dreams, delusions of grandeur, but he’s really sort of stuck. When you get to the end of the movie you feel like, you’re kind of hopeful that he does make a movie, and gets the guts to kiss the girl and pulls his shit together.”
