Great news, graboids fans, Tremors is making a new movie! Tremors 5 will star franchise veteran Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) but it’s got a new location: South Africa. Understandably there may not be many Tremors fans out there anymore, seeing as the original and now cult classic Tremors was released way back in 1990. But those of us that continue to follow the franchise will be very pleased indeed.
Who can forget this classic scene from Tremors 1 starring Kevin Bacon yelling “Can you fly you sucker!”
According to Bloody Disgusting, Tremors 5 will include the classic graboids and the assblasters along with a brand new creature.
“The theatrical release of the original Tremors in 1990 combined suspense-filled action, sci-fi imagination and witty humor in the tale of a tiny Nevada town terrorized by giant man-eating worms known as Graboids. The Graboids eventually morphed into even more deadly creatures known as Ass Blasters. In this all-new adventure that travels halfway around the world to South Africa, the Graboids and the Ass Blasters are not only bigger and badder but Tremors 5 introduces an additional unexpected surprise that raises the stakes in the battle for survival.“
Michael Gross returns as weapons enthusiast and expert subterranean creature hunter Burt Gummer with Jamie Kennedy as his new right hand man, tech-savvy Travis. The pair are joined by an international cast as they mount a battle against the deadly creatures that turns out to be far more than they bargained for.
The film is directed by Don Michael Paul from a script by John Whelpley and produced by Ogden Gavanski (The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Fire, Warm Bodies).
Tremors 5 will be released on Blu-Ray Hi-Def, DVD and Digital HD in 2016.
