It looks like Kevin Bacon is on-board to do a TV pilot based on the movie Tremors that he starred in 25 years ago...
Kevin Bacon has revealed that the Tremors reboot which he is developing with Oscar-nominated Whiplash producer Jason Blum is set to be made with US broadcaster Syfy (formerly the Sci-Fi Channel).
He will again be playing Valentine McKee, the Nevada handyman who tussles with gigantic man-eating sandworms. “It’s the only character I’ve ever played that I was interested in exploring 25 years later,” Bacon said. “It (Tremors) is a really good movie. “I don’t go back and watch my movies but because we were doing this one, I had to go back and look at it. It’s just the idea of this loser who is living a very ordinary life and has an extraordinary experience with these monsters and becomes, for a moment, a hero.”
The reboot will look at what happens to the character a quarter of a century on.
I've only seen the first movie (and not any of the cheesier five sequels that were done after) and recall enjoying it at the time.
Hopefully the pilot will be good and we'll have more wacky adventures of Valentine McKee and his sandworms.
Sounds like something you'd need an antibiotic to cure.
