Can you hear the rumbles now?

Kevin Bacon obviously has a soft spot in his heart for one of his earliest genre hits. The veteran actor took to Twitter over the weekend to let his fans know he’s very interested in continuing the Tremors film franchise. Check out his tweet on this page.

Bacon is even on record as saying Tremors is “the one film of mine that I wanted to revisit. In fact, Tremors is the only movie of mine I have rewatched since it’s come out.”

The original 1990 Tremors–directed by Ron Underwood from a screenplay he wrote with Brent Maddock and S.S. Wilson–stars Bacon, Fred Ward, Finn Carter, Michael Gross and Reba McEntire.

In the Universal Pictures feature, handymen Val McKee (Bacon) and Earl Bassett (Ward) want to leave their boring lives in Perfection, Nev. behind them, but they stumble across a “series of mysterious deaths and a concerned seismologist, Rhonda (Carter), who’s studying unnatural readings underground,” according to the synopsis.

With the help of survivalist couple Burt and Heather Gummer (Gross and McEntire), the group “fights for survival against giant, prehistoric worm-like monsters hungry for human flesh.”

The first in a series that included five direct-to-video sequels and a prequel, Tremors earned just $17 million at the box office on a $10-million budget.
