Kevin Bacon wants to star in a Tremors sequel

Fans of horror franchises tend to want to get as many installments of their favorite series as possible. Sometimes our hope for future sequels is just as strong, and in some cases stronger, than our enjoyment of the latest sequel. When a sequel is announced, we want more sequels to be ahead of it, and as soon as a new one ends we start thinking of how the next one might pick up from that ending.

So far we've gotten four TREMORS movies and thirteen episodes of a television series, and I'm still wanting to see more of the Graboids, Shriekers, and Ass Blasters, as well as the characters from the small Nevada town of Perfection. October 6th is the home video release date for TREMORS 5: BLOODLINES, a sequel I'm very happy to be getting after eleven years of the franchise being dormant. I have hope we'll be getting more TREMORS beyond that. Someone else who's hoping for more TREMORS is Kevin Bacon, who starred in the original film twenty-five years ago.

For the last year, Bacon has repeatedly mentioned in the press that his TREMORS character Valentine McKee is one of the few characters he's played that he would like to revisit. He wants to play Val again and find out where he is in his life twenty-five years later. In interviews, including one with author Jonathan Melville for the recently released book SEEKING PERFECTION: THE UNOFFICIAL GUIDE TO TREMORS, Bacon has mentioned that he recently rewatched TREMORS and was pleasantly surprised to find that it holds up as a beautiful looking, good film. That's a nice turn around on the opinion he had of it when heading into production, at which time he was depressed to be making a movie about worms.

Although returning to the series would be a dream project for Bacon, the actor feels that it's not likely to happen, saying

"Universal doesn’t seem to be interested, so it’s moot."

But as an eternally optimistic fan of the franchise, I'm going to hold on to some hope that the studio will realize how awesome the resulting movie could be if they were to pit Kevin Bacon against those worms again. Make it happen, Universal!

Than they have to bring back Fred Ward as well! They were such a great comedic pairing in the original Tremors.

more Kevin Bacon!!!

how can Universal prefer Michael Gross over Kevin Bacon for the Tremors movies??
is Universal being univerally cheap and lazy, that they haven't asked Bacon back into the good graces of Perfection Valley?
Possibly... but Bacon has been busy on TV too so they may have asked him to return for part 5 and he had to turn it down for scheduling conflicts? he just completed 45 shows for The Following (which had none) so now he's ripe to get back on the tremors bandwagon... i'm down for that.

Bring back Tremors to the big screen!

We need Fred Ward, Michael Gross, Kevin Bacon and someone new (Kristen Schaal) to bring Graboids: Tremorsys to the big screen.

Heck yeah I want to see Kevin Bacon fights more Graboids! I guess it depends on how well the new Tremors will perform financially. If it's that good, I hope Universal will give Mr. Bacon a chance to reprise his role.
