“Cube,” “Splice” and much in demand TV director Vincenzo Natali has been set to helm the pilot for Syfy’s upcoming series refresh of the “Tremors” franchise.
Kevin Bacon will reprise his role of Valentine McKee in the 1990 film in this sequel set twenty-five years later as the killer Graboid worms that nearly destroyed Perfection, Nevada have returned.
Andrew Miller penned and serves as showrunner on the follow-up, in which the now older and alcoholic Valentine must get over his delusional hero complex and actually save the town.
The project marks Natali’s first pilot, though he has been involved helming episodes of many prestige genre series in recent years including “Hannibal,” “Westworld,” “American Gods,” “Orphan Black,’ “Luke Cage” and “The Strain”.
Bacon, David Schiff and Jessica Rhoades also executive produce the series which Blumhouse TV and Universal Cable Productions are producing.
