It's a rare thing for a character to be swallowed by one of those subterranean creatures known as Graboids and live to tell the tale. TREMORS franchise hero Burt Gummer (played by Michael Gross) got to see the Graboid digestive system up close in TREMORS 3: BACK TO PERFECTION, and one of his associates in TREMORS 5: BLOODLINES also survived becoming a hot lunch.

Judging by a behind-the-scenes image from the upcoming TREMORS 6 that director Don Michael Paul has shared, it looks like Burt's sidekick/son Travis B. Welker will be the next person to rise from a Graboid's guts. Paul posted a picture of actor Jamie Kennedy, smeared with blood and slime, standing in strange surroundings, and captioned it: "Jamie in the belly of the beast!"

TREMORS 6 was scripted by John Whelpley, who also wrote TREMORS 3 and 5. Whelpley clearly likes to put a person inside a Graboid and then bring them back out again.

This new sequel has the following synopsis: 

Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) and his son Travis Welker (Jamie Kennedy) find themselves up to their ears in Graboids and Ass-Blasters when they head to Canada to investigate a series of deadly giant-worm attacks. Arriving at a remote research facility in the artic tundra, Burt begins to suspect that Graboids are secretly being weaponized, but before he can prove his theory, he is sidelined by Graboid venom. With just 48 hours to live, the only hope is to create an antidote from fresh venom — but to do that, someone will have to figure out how to milk a Graboid!   

Gross and Kennedy are joined in the cast by Tanya van Graan, Rob van Vuuren, Greg Kriek, and Keeno Lee Hector.

TREMORS 6 will be hitting Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD sometime in 2018, courtesy of Universal Home Entertainment.
