Back in November of 2015, it was revealed that Kevin Bacon would be returning as Valentine McKee in a brand new television series based off the classic 1990's monster movie, Tremors. Bacon would also serve as an executive producer on the project, which was being penned by Andrew Miller.
Now, the actor has confirmed that the TV series is a go, and that it has found a home on Syfy.
"We are going to do a pilot for Syfy," Bacon confirmed to Screen Daily. "It’s the only character I’ve ever played that I was interested in exploring 25 years later. 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 original Tremors, which saw residents of Perfection, Nevada battling giant killer worms, was released in 1990 by Universal Pictures and starred Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward, Michael Gross, Finn Carter and Reba McEntire as a group of townspeople battling monstrous sand worms, known as graboids, living beneath the earth of their small Nevada town.
The movie grossed a mere $16-Million and spawned four sequels and a short-lived TV show.
