In an interview with Collider’s Christina Radish, Kevin Bacon reported that the long-rumored Television adaptation of Tremors is in development at Amazon. No timetable or production update was offered, but the announcement gives fans of the sand worn cult classic hope that the series will eventually “come up for air” on the streaming service.
Bacon discussed the unlikely home video and cable hit, marveling that “It did become a real classic. It was also at a time when the VHS was exploding. Movies took on a life of their own. The last thing you wanted, in that point in our industry, was to have a movie go straight to VHS. Tremors did not perform at the box office, but it did great on VHS.”
According to Bacon, the film will take place after the events of the original film, even though “they went and made a bunch of sequels to the movie. I want to put those aside because, first of all, I wasn’t in them. But what I was really interested in was taking this guy and, 25 years later, seeing what happened to him, to his dreams, and to his life. Andrew Miller, who’s writing the script, came up with this really, really interesting take on it, and I think it could be a lot of fun.”
