Kevin Bacon was surprised the network that paid for a pilot for a ‘Tremors’ TV spin-off didn’t pick it up to series.
The 64-year-old actor starred alongside the late Fred West as handymen Valentine and Earl, respectively, in the 1990 cult classic.
And there was supposed to be a series, and even though Syfy decided against airing it, the “Footloose” star still hopes it will hit screens one day.
Speaking on ‘The Jess Cagle Show with Julia Cunningham’, the Hollywood star said: “We went and did a pilot, in my opinion it was an awesome pilot.
“To my surprise and I still don’t quite know why, the channel that paid for the pilot didn’t want to air it as a series, so it was over, it was over.
“You know, someone just asked me the other day if there’s still a possibility, of course you always say never say never, but right now it’s just dead…”
Kevin expressed his desire to do a sequel to the film last year.
He admitted, “It was one of my movies that I wanted to revisit this character. I’m not looking back at all.”
Sadly, Fred passed away on May 8, and Kevin has fond memories of working with the movie legend.
Upon hearing the news of his death, Kevin tweeted, “So sad to hear about Fred Ward. When it came to fighting underground worms, I couldn’t have asked for a better partner.
“I will always remember his conversation about his love of Django Reinhardt and the jazz guitar during our long, hot days in the high desert. Rest in peace, Fred.
