Kevin Bacon Still Sees Potential In A Tremors TV Series
By TRAVIS YATES
"Tremors," starring Kevin Bacon, was a financial and critical failure when it was released in 1990, but with the help of VHS rentals and cable television, it became a cult classic. It spawned six sequels and a SyFy series, each arguably worse than the last, which Bacon declined to participate in due to his reputation for not looking back on roles.
However, Bacon has said recently that “Tremors” is the only film of his that he has rewatched, and that’s what prompted him to shoot for a sequel: “We were around the 25-year anniversary. I went to Blumhouse, and they were totally into the idea.” Unfortunately, Universal passed on the feature film but countered with a television series — which was canceled soon after shooting its pilot episode.
Despite the setbacks, Bacon has remained hopeful, saying, "I would still love to do it, believe me. Maybe it needs to be the 30th anniversary or the 35th. We'll keep going." So, it seems that as long as Kevin Bacon has anything to say on the matter, audiences have not seen the last of Val McKee or the Graboids in the "Tremors" universe just yet.
