Kevin Bacon Signs on for ‘Tremors’ TV Reboot

Kevin Bacon has signed on to star and exec produce a television series adaptation of “Tremors,” Variety has learned.

Based on the 1990 film, Bacon will reprise his role of Valentine McKee, 25 years later. He will also serve as an exec producer.

No network is yet attached to the “Tremors” remake, which hails from the NBCUniversal-based Universal Cable Productions and Blumhouse Productions, though insiders say multiple venues are hot on the project. Andrew Miller will pen the script.

The original film grossed $16.6 million domestically and follows the residents in the town of Perfection, Nevada, as they deal with mysterious underground monsters who wreak havoc. Four straight-to-video sequels and an earlier TV series, “Tremors: The Series,” followed, though Bacon only appeared in the original. Entertainment Weekly first reported on the upcoming UCP reboot.

Bacon recently finished his tenure on Fox’s “The Following.” He also appeared in Johnny Depp starrer “Black Mass,” which is generating much Oscar buzz.
