In the wake of brand new sequel Tremors: Bloodlines hitting home video, we learned that Kevin Bacon would be heading back to Perfection in the form of a new television series set within the franchise universe, but it’s been a while since we’ve heard a peep. According to Bacon, it’s very much still happening!
Speaking with Collider, Bacon provided an update.
“We’re at Amazon. We’re still waiting for a draft, but I’m 100% on board with that,” said the man who played Valentine McKee in the 1990 classic. “It’s great. It’s a super cool idea. 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.”
The actor also reflected on Tremors.
“When I came up with the idea and reached out to Blumhouse about looking at it again, I looked at the movie, and I don’t look at my movies, at all,” said Bacon. “I went back and put it up on my screen at home and went, ‘Wow, this is a really good movie!’ I just didn’t get it when I was there and in it. I wrote it off ‘cause it wasn’t a hit, and I really needed one. But, I think it’s a really good movie. It’s unusual and it’s funny. Doing funny scary is something that is rarely good and rarely works, and it’s also something that’s incredibly hard to market. I think that was part of the problem.”
