Perfection is real, but just out of reach. Following word that SYFY passed on Kevin Bacon‘s Tremors sequel series, the full trailer has burrowed its way onto the web for a taste of what might have been.
The worm has officially turned, but not in the direction anyone expected. Despite setting Kevin Bacon to reprise his famous Tremors role in a new TV series based on the cult classic, SYFY has apparently passed on returning to Perfection, Nevada.
We knew Amazon was likely to drop a few series in its quest for universal hits, but this is a bloodbath. Not only have Jill Soloway’s I Love Dick and Tig Notaro’s One Mississippi been given the axe, but not even Jean-Claude Van Damme could kick it away.
Don’t be alarmed by those vibrations in the ground, it’s just the Kevin Bacon-starring Tremors TV series gearing up. Syfy has booked Cube and Splice director Vincenzo Natali to helm the pilot episode, picking up from the cult classic 1990 film.
It only took two years, but the worm has finally turned. Syfy has given an official pilot order to a Kevin Bacon-fronted Tremors TV series, continuing the 1990 film legacy that spawned four direct-to-video sequels and a prior TV series.
We’ve seen one look at Andy Samberg’s HBO followup to tennis mockumentary 7 Days in Hell, but the Tour de Pharmacy is only just begun. Get ready for a dope-tastic July premiere with the full trailer and key-art, crammed to the gills with famous faces.
