It’s been a long time coming, but episode seven of the TremorsCast finally exists and includes some of my exclusive interview with Kevin Bacon for Seeking Perfection: The Unofficial Guide to Tremors.
This episode is due to arrive in iTunes on the 19th of January 2016, 26 years to the day since Tremors was released into US cinemas. My plan is to release at least one new episode of the podcast each month in 2016, bringing you news from around the Tremors universe and audio from some of the 50 plus interviews I carried out for the book.
It looks like 2016 is going to be a busy one for Tremors fans, with the recent news that Kevin Bacon plans to bring Tremors back to the small screen along with Blumhouse Productions. I’ve also heard rumblings that Universal are interested in a Tremors 6.
2016 also marks the 20th anniversary of Tremors 2’s release on home video, and I’ll be covering that and more throughout the year.
Kevin told me about his initial feelings about the role of Val McKee:
“There was something fun about that character and the relationship between those two guys, grown men who were kind of losers. When you have two losers who are put into the situation of having to rise to a level of heroism, I think it can be kind of fun. So I was really taking a flyer on it, but I can’t say I was feeling, ‘Oh wow, this is the one.’”
