Kevin Bacon Dreaming of Being in Tremors Reboot
Sounds like Kevin Bacon is really wanting to saddle up and reprise his role of Valentine McKee from the 1990 classic Tremors. How do we know this? Well, we heard it straight from the horse's mouth, and now you can too!

During a fan interview on The Huffington Post, Bacon was questioned about the cult favorite hit. His answer was pretty surprising. “I have a real dream right now. I want to reboot [Tremors],” says Bacon of the film which is getting the reboot treatment from Don Michael Paul (Lake Placid: The Final Chapter).
Given his next comments we can only assume that he wants to reprise his role and NOT reboot the film as a director or what not. “To see the character 25 years down the line. Seeing what that guy may have become. When I started thinking about this, I hadn’t seen the movie in 25 years so I went back and watched it recently. I was pleasantly surprised. It was still really cool.”
Check out the entire interview below.
As reported earlier, the film will be more of a sequel than a complete remake with Michael Gross reprising the role of monster-killer Burt Gummer. Gross has to date appeared in every film in the franchise and even the short-lived TV series it spawned.
The new film, tentatively titled Tremors 5, is currently casting for a September kick-off in South Africa.
