The Tremors films are fun and all, but they’re becoming a bit stale with sequel after sequel heading directly to disc and streaming platforms. Thankfully, the filmmakers behind these films are ready to jump the Graboid.
Earlier this year, Michael Gross announced that he has signed contracts to return once again as Burt Gummer in a seventh Tremors. Now, the latest issue of Production Weekly reports that the newest film is pulling from 1953’s The Most Dangerous Game, which is interestingly similar to Universal Pictures’ The Hunt.
In the reportedly-titled Tremors: Island Fury:
“The deadly Graboids are back, illegally brought in to a new island resort by a rich playboy looking for a trophy hunt.”
Yes, instead of the rich hunting the poor, the rich are hunting Graboids. We’re about one or two Tremors sequels away from heading to space!
Brian Brightly wrote the screenplay with Universal Home Entertainment regular Don Michael Paul returning to direct. He previously got behind the camera for Tremors 5: Bloodlines and last year’s Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell, as well as several other Universal home video titles.
Shooting could take place this November in Thailand.
