Exclusive : About this Tremors reboot…

So, about this “Tremors” reboot you may have heard about.

Don’t drop sweat blobs, yet.

The new film, currently casting for a September kick-off in South Africa (where quite a few of Universal’s recent direct-to-DVD sequels have been shot), is about as much a do-over as “Tron Legacy” or “Star Wars Episode VII”. In other words, it totally bows to the graboid of the original, and that includes paying respect to those who’ve previously done battle with the ‘mother hoppers’. So though there’s a couple of new, over-keen young cats in the film (with all their whiz-bang modern-day – didn’t have that in 1990 stuff – contraptions) there’s one big stout link to the original films – and that’s Burt Gummer (or ‘The Gummer’ as he’s nicknamed in this). And as if we’d want it any other way, Michael Gross is back to reprise the role of the heavily-armed monster-buster.

Don Michael Paul, currently on “Jarhead 2” starring Cole Hauser and Esai Morales, is lensing “Tremors 5” (and yes, that’s the title on the script).

It might kick off the series again, but the new film is more sequel than redo.
