After five movies and a short-lived series, the sci-fi franchise Tremors is being revived on the small screen!
But the best part? Kevin Bacon will be acting in it!
The Following star will serve as actor and exec producer in a series based on the 1990 cult classic about giant, deadly worms called graboids!
After 25 years, the 57-year-old will reprise his role of Valentine McKee — who finally returns to the fictional town of Perfection, Nevada!
Earlier this year, the actor expressed interest in revisiting Tremors, saying:
“I’d love to do something else with Tremors and revisit the character 25 years later. Part of what’s great about that movie is there are next to no digital effects. The monsters are done with puppetry, and it’s still off, funny and scary ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ it’s a cool accomplishment.”
The actor didn’t appear in any of the franchise’s four direct-to-video sequels — OR the single-season 2003 SyFy Channel TV show — so Bacon’s involvement is a good sign this show will be killer!
