While doing press for Cop Car, Kevin Bacon revealed that he is actually really into the idea of rebooting or at least revisiting the Tremors franchise. Tremors: Bloodline is poised to make its debut this fall and Bacon is growing increasingly nostalgic for the original film and is curious to see what Valentine McKee has been up to for the past 25 years.
He told The Huffington Post the following: “I had a real dream right now, which is to reboot it, and to see the character 25 years down the line, to see what that guy may have become. There is an example of a movie that, when I started thinking about it, I hadn’t seen it in 25 years and I went back and watched it recently, I was really pleasantly surprised. It’s a beautiful looking movie, it really is a good film.”
Bacon is skeptical about it ever happening, though. He followed up that statement by saying: “Universal doesn’t seem to be interested, so it’s moot.”
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.
