A reboot of the 90s cult hit film Tremors is in the works at Syfy from Universal Cable Productions and Blumhouse (horror movie kings, The Purge, Get Out, Paranormal Activity etc. creators)
In the new Tremors, written by Andrew Miller, the killer Graboid worms that nearly destroyed Perfection, NV, 25 years ago are back, and the town’s only hope for survival is Valentine McKee (Kevin Bacon), who beat them once. But to do it again he’ll have to overcome age, alcohol and a delusional hero complex.
Per Shadow & Act’s respective interest, we’re noting specifically that Ebonée Noel and Brandon Jay McLaren have been cast as well.
Their character descriptions:
“Noel will portray Zoe, a truth-seeker possessed with deep, sensual intuition and mystic power, Zoe’s connection to Mother Earth is aided by Perfection’s unique energy and provides her with visions of events to come. McLaren is Toby, a likable guy who nobody likes; he’s the public liaison to a data storage company in Perfection that failed to create any local jobs. He’s hanging around to facilitate the company’s transition from staffed to unmanned operation.”
Hunter Parrish, Haley Tju and PJ Byrne are also regulars.
Noel’s recent roles include a stint on TBS’s Wrecked and she was also a series regular on Shondaland’s short-lived ABC period drama, Still Star-Crossed.
McLaren currently stars in CBS’s Slasher and starred in Season 1 of the Canadian series Slasher (Chiller and Netflix distributed in the U.S.). He also recurred on AMC’s The Killing and the most recent season of Lifetime’s UnREAL. For another fun fact, he also portrayed the Red Ranger in the thirteenth season of the Power Rangers in 2005.
