In a recent interview with Collider, Kevin Bacon opened up about the long-awaited Tremors television series. And he told the outlet that the project is definitely still on his radar and it is being developed from a streaming content provider, as opposed to a linear channel.. We’re at Amazon,” Bacon said. “We’re still waiting for a draft, but I’m 100% on board with that.”
It’s great,” the actor continued. “It’s a super cool idea. They went and made a bunch of sequels to the movie. I want to put those aside because, first of all, I wasn’t in them. But what I was really interested in was taking this guy and, 25 years later, seeing what happened to him, to his dreams, and to his life. Andrew Miller, who’s writing the script, came up with this really, really interesting take on it, and I think it could be a lot of fun.”
Last we heard, Bacon was on board both to star in and executive produce the series. At that point, it was reported that the show was being produced via a partnership between Universal Television and Blumhouse.
This isn’t the first time Tremors has been adapted for the small screen, the previous attempt ran for 13 episodes on the SyFy Channel in 2003.
The original remains one of the most beloved cult classics of the ’90s and it has spawned a series of follow up efforts that went direct to video, as well as a short lived television series in 2003.
The original Tremors film saw a town plagued by underground creatures called graboids that were intent upon whittling down the town’s population.
