Kevin Bacon’s ‘Tremors’ reboot aims to be TV series
    2017-June-28  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Syfy is rebooting “Tremors” (again).

The NBCUniversal-owned cable network has handed out a pilot order for a TV adaptation of the 1990 film starring Kevin Bacon. The drama, which is produced by Universal Cable Productions, counts Jason Blum and showrunner* Andrew Miller among its creative team. In addition to starring, Bacon will also exec produce alongside David Schiff (“Southpaw”) and Blumhouse Television.

The film centered on a repairman (Bacon) and his friend who uncover several mysterious deaths in their small desert town of Perfection, Nevada, only to discover a group of giant, worm-like* monsters who eat human flesh below the surface. The group must then fight to stay alive. Miller (“The Secret Circle”) will pen the script for the revival*, which picks up 25 years after the events of the film and finds Valentine McKee attempting to save the town again — but this time, also battling age, alcohol and a delusional* hero complex.

The horror film, which was produced by Universal Pictures, grossed US$16 million at the box office before it became a cult* classic on home video and spawned* four sequels. Syfy (then Sci-Fi) first attempted a TV remake in 2003, however, “Tremors: The Series” was canceled after one 13-episode season. A second TV adaptation was announced in late 2015 but failed to land a network at the time.

The official news comes a day after Bacon, in an interview on Sunday at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, discussed returning to the character when he revealed that the reboot had landed at Syfy.

“This is the only character I’ve played that I’ve ever thought about revisiting. I just got to thinking, where would this guy end up after 25 years?” Bacon said in a Syfy release announcing the pilot pickup on Monday. “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.”
