    Looks like Kevin Bacon has just officially signed onto Syfy's new Tremors TV series pilot, reprising his role as Val from the original film:

    Better be white trash as shit. This is everything I ever wanted. Let's hope Syfy gives them a decent budget.

    I know that Bacon has been talking about doing this since 2015, and it's great that he's so enthusiastic about this project. I wonder if they can get Fred Ward to at least be in some episodes. And yeah, it'd be criminal not to have Michael Gross in the series to some degree.

    It'd be nice if they actually made it like the sequels to Tremors (the ones Gross headlined) all happened -- where Gross just occasionally pops up as a badass Graboid-hunter (when he's not hunting Graboids in some other part of the world).

    It's also fun, because soon we'll be able to describe DUNE as "Tremors plus Game of Thrones."

    I would sure give this a chance. I'd like to see Finn Carter be a regular.

    As a long time Tremors fan I would love to see this. Though I hope it doesn't COMPLETELY ignore the sequels. Michael Gross is essential to anything Tremors in my book, and as he's been involved with EVERY Tremors sequel (including the 4th which was a prequel) and the first Sci-fi channel series, it would be strange to see a Burt that out of nowhere has nothing to say about the last 20-some years of graboid incidents. I'm totally fine with it being more of a follow-up to the first with Val back as a main protagonist, but to totally disregard everything Tremors since the first wouldn't be cool.

    I also hope that Fred Ward and Michael Gross appear in this.

    Kind of sad that actors get stuck in these kind of roles that they can't seem to escape, but Kevin's probably getting a very nice paycheck.

    Sort of like Streisand and others singers where people just want to hear the oldies they're famous for, so they sing them over and over, hundreds, even thousands of times.

    For the past little while, I've made Saturday movie night (what a concept! except, I'm not that much of a movie guy). For the most part, that means renting something on Vudu or finding something to record on cable. The announcement of this series happened to coincide with Starz or somebody running every movie except the fifth, which the Sci-Fi channel was running. This Saturday will be week four of my Tremors Saturdayathon, and I have to say, the first three have all been pretty good. The second was almost on par with the first. The third wasn't as good, but it was still fun. Hopefully, the next two will also be enjoyable. I doubt if I'll try to track down the first series, but at least I'll be ready for the new one.

    I liked all of the first four, but the drop in quality for the fifth was pretty steep. Bodily function gags, 20-years-later ripoffs of Jurassic Park, and bad CGI. Michael Gross said he was doing a sixth. If the TV series doesn't kill that, I hope they fix their mistakes.

    I interviewed Michael Gross this past week (it will be posted next week) and based on our conversation, it's unlikely he'll make any appearance. But things could always change I guess.

    Not good news:

    Goddamn it. Maybe Netflix will pick it up. That call to Fred must've been awkward.

    At least the new movie is out or nearly out. On the plus, it sounds like they’re borrowing from The Thing. On the negative, it sounds like Burt is going to be out of action for much of it in favor of Jamie Kennedy. The last movie was the only one where it became very hard to see any merit.

    That “Coming Soon” made me sad. Sure wish they were making this series.
